Dianna's Judges Choice, AGDA Awards 2008 [03.11.2008]
It was an honour to be chosen as a judge for the recent AGDA National Awards, held bi-annually the Australian Graphic Design Awards are an industry highlight. My judges choice was The World in Words a campaign for The Sydney Writers' Festival 2008 designed by Saatchi Design.
I loved this piece – its unpretentious, evocative art direction and straightforward black and white photography. A beautiful and simple idea about memory, text and place. The juxtaposition of spectacular and suburban Sydney landmarks with well-travelled paperbacks was clever and striking, strongly branding the festival’s position in the international writers’ circuit.
