Print Regional Design Awards—EAST

This year, the brilliant Regional Design Awards judges—Aaron Draplin, Jessica Hische, Pum Lefebure, Ellen Lupton, Eddie Opara and Paula Scher—have pored over, puzzled over, obsessed and stressed over nearly 4,000 entries to bring you this list of their selections for the best American designs of the year.

As in years past, the subsequent gathering of these entries into a single magazine volume is revealing—in the themes, anomalies and trends that one sees, but also in what one doesn’t see … and perhaps might next year. Regardless of whether you love or hate a particular design as you comb these pages, it no doubt informs, in a subtle way, what you bring to the world next.
