Best of the Best

It is not often I open my mailbox and feel absolutely ecstatic about what's inside— yet this is the excitement I experience every November upon the arrival of the The Print Regional Design Annual. That excitement very quickly turns to jealousy— every year there are some amazing winners. There were even a few choices we've posted about on Crew Design— like the GOOD magazine produced by Starbucks and the city posters by Ork. I feel the need to share just a few more of my absolute favorites. I'm calling them the "Best of the Best," but this is just my opinion. They are either designs that leave me wishing I had thought of the idea, or really beautifully made book covers/posters/packaging. I hope you enjoy my picks, and if you already got your issue please share your own! ••••

Unfortunately, if a lawyer ever used a business card like that he could get disbarred. Shame though because it's awesome!
