This Friday, May 7th, The Society of Publication Designers will have it's 45th annual awards presentation, this year at Cipriani Wall Street.
In the category of Illustration: Cover, there are 5 finalists. One is for my Rolling Stone cover, "Bush Apologizes", art director, Joseph Hutchinson.
Part of the Jury process is already complete and my cover for Discover Magazine was a merit winner, art director Mike Diioia (yes, that's 5 vowels in a row!).
Looking over the list of art directors involved with award winning work I see several repeated names: Arem Duplessis for the New York Times Magazine, Scott Dadich of Wired, David Curcurito of Esquire and a newcomer, Fred Woodward of GQ. Others include John Korpics of Fortune, Janet Froelich of Real Simple and Arthur Hochstein of Time.
Looking forward to watch our industries talented Art Directors celebrate their craft. They certainly do that in style.
