A powerful over-arching brand presence is a force to be reckoned with. Winning entries from the Regional Design Awards prove that the fruits of their labor didn’t go unnoticed by the design industry at large. Each year, a panel of all-star judges selects the projects to be featured on the pages of the December issue of Print magazine—the most popular, and widespread issue.
Here are 6 branding projects that beg for additional recognition. Want your project to be seen? There’s still time to enter the 2014 RDA!
