By: Print Magazine | January 10, 2017

It’s here: the design industry’s most well-respected annual. It’s the 2016 Print Regional Design Awards. Zachary Petit says it best in his editor’s letter: “The RDA always comes together with a bit of mysticism in the end.” Nearly 3,000 entries, six regions, six judges, 17 categories and countless hours of work from the designers and everyone involved in this massive issue. For over 35 years, Print’s RDA has been the only design annual broken down by region, giving designers across the country the recognition they deserve, and showcasing each region’s inspiring and distinct trends and styles.
