The Design Academy Eindhoven Graduation Catalogue 2011 is nominated for the European Design Award 2012. This is a prestigous annual award given to the best of graphic design, illustration and digital design in Europe. We are very proud of this nomination and thank Ilse Crawford, curator of the Graduation Show 2011 and overall creative director of the show for her vision on the DAE graduation.
The design and concept of the catalogue was done by Studio Boot. Art director Petra Janssen (Studio Boot) has transformed this artistic production into an inspiring design book which perfectly tells the story of the impressive graduate projects by our students.

Our caralogue is nominated for the category Artistic Catalogue. Included in this category are:

  • Exhibition catalogues
  • Design portfolios
  • Artist portfolios
  • Architect portfolios
  • Photographer portfolios

According to the organization there are three reasons why the ED-Awards are the best of their kind:

  • The ED-Awards boast the most qualified jury in Europe, composed of representatives from the leading European design magazines. They are design journalists and critics, whose job is to recognise and promote the best of communication design internationally.
  • The ED-Awards are truly a pan-European competition. Last year submissions came from 29 different European countries (with the top country submitting less than 20% of the total number) and winners came from 21 countries (with the top country achieving about 25% of total prizes). The jury members themselves come from 13 different countries.
  • The ED-Awards receive the widest publicity in the design awards field. Agencies and designers who excel here, get the best coverage available. The reason is simple: the ED-Awards are based on a network of design media.

The final winner will be anounced in Design Capital 2012 May 26 2012.
