The Annual

Our awards scheme showcasing the best

in visual communications from the last year


May’s best work includes a dog that raps, an interactive music video by Chris Milk and smart wine packaging

Client of the year: Google

Our 2011 Client of the Year was the band Arcade Fire. Our reasoning was that they had been responsible for commissioning some of the most forward-thinking work of the year. Our choice this year is a much larger organisation, but our reasons are similar


January’s best work includes Thunderbid stamps, the most amazing beat box video ever, a calendar of endangered species, and the future of Mexico City


February’s best work includes an app designed to stop time-wasting in meetings, Darth Vader using the force, and 10,000 unique digital prints


March’s best work includes a new quarterly men’s magazine, a title sequence made on the beach, and Google’s phonetic advertising


April’s best work includes a living installation, a billboard powered by oranges, Land Rover passport stamps and a Royal Wedding spoof


June’s best work includes a build-your-own album, a ticket machine that prints out comments, and Giles Revell’s beautiful promo film for the BBC


July’s best work includes Falcon’s screenprinted packaging, and app that lets children be the backseat driver, and giant 3D paper sculptures


August’s best work includes David Bellos’s animation for Penguin, the world’s largest stop motion film, LeftLoft’s posters for Inter Milan, and Jamie’s iPad app
