Fast Co. Design is a great place to find all things design related, and recently they announced the winners of their 2015 Innovation By Design awards. It's a varied group, from print to web and everything in between, and it shows the amazing things that we as designers can do with our creative visions.
Winner: MIT Media Lab Identity
Using styles that MIT has applied since the '60s, creator Michael Bierut designed amazing marques that are placed around the various labs on campus.
Finalist: Sweden Sans
A font developed by a country? Sure, why not.
Finalist: OfficeUs Identity
Built using a special prototyping tool that simulates light on a letterform, Hoefler & Co. created a super cool font that looks old school.
Finalist: Sound Meets Type
Imagine a typeface that looks like someone sounds. This is that.
Finalist: Mutant Font
Does this look digital to you? Like it came from an NES or Comoodore 64? That's kind of the point, as it was inspired by the encryption techniques used to prevent content from being tracked.
Where entrepreneurs and technology cross, you get this symbol. And man, does this look cool.
Finalist: Norway's New Banknotes
Money was up for an award? It sure was, and when it looks as sweet as this, you can understand why.
Finalist: IFC Network Branding
If you've tuned in to IFC recently, then you've noticed their new look. Personally, I dig it, and so does Fast Co. Design.
