Health + Wellness Design Awards
The Best In Graphic Design
ENTRY DEADLINE: August 15, 2014
For five decades, GDUSA has presented competitions that focus on areas of growth and opportunity for graphic design. In 2014, that's the perfect description of health and wellness, the hottest topic in the news and fastest-growing segment of the economy.
This new competition encompasses the big picture of healthcare: traditional medical industries such as doctors and nurses, hospitals and homecare, pharmaceuticals and insurance, as well as newly energized preventative and holistic areas such as fitness and exercise, meditation and spiritual, and natural and organic lifestyles.
It's a great opportunity to be recognized by clients, prospects and the community for design excellence in an area of ultimate importance, fundamental transformation, and robust growth.
