NEW YORK, NY
(July 12, 2007)— On July 12th
, for the first time ever, The One Club
, host of the world's most prestigious advertising awards show, the One Show
, honored the year's most innovative design at One Show Design
, awards ceremony held at the Chelsea Art Museum in New York City. Design has been a part of the One Show since 2001. The decision to create a separate event came in response to the increasing number of entries received from around the world in recent years, as well as the growing emphasis on good design in the consumer marketplace.
"Package design is often a consumer's first experience of a product," says Mary Warlick, CEO of The One Club. "By giving design its own special night, we are sending an unmistakable message—good design is good for business."
The coveted Gold, Silver and Bronze Pencils were awarded in categories including corporate identity, environmental design, publication design, direct mail and package design, with Apple Computer
racking up numerous awards for their hip, ground-breaking corporate image. A special retrospective celebrating the first six years of One Show Design was also presented during the ceremony.
Offering further proof that music is fueling the engine of advertising design, posters designed by Ames Bros in Seattle for rock band Pearl Jam's 2006 World Tour were awarded a coveted Gold Pencil and Santa Monica's Blind agency also took home the Gold for cover art they designed for Gnarls Barkley's
hit single "Crazy."
