It’s a temptation that has proved beyond the resistance of many ad creatives: trawling through old awards annuals for ideas to steal. This year’s One Show Annual makes the process a whole lot easier
Titled in reference to the famous TS Eliot quote To Steal Is Genius, the 2010 One Show Annual, the awards publication for the One Club, features elements from some of the winning work reproduced as stickers. Readers can take these elements – headlines, images, products, interfaces and client logos – and re-arrange them into their own layouts using the spaces provided.
The books were created by ad agency Anomaly and come in a set of three volumes (one each for the advertising, design and interactive categories) housed in a slipcase.
And before anyone jumps in, yes, we are aware this was published last month but we haven’t seen it covered anywhere else yet and we thought it was kind of fun.

D&AD’s Annual this year was also an elaborate affair, this time designed by the artists Bob & Roberta Smith, as we reported here
But are these big annuals still the best way to present work? Mike Dempsey suggests an alternative here
