The Laus Awards, organised annually by the ADG-FAD, acknowledge the best projects of graphic design and visual communication. Distributed into more than 50 section and five categories, year after year they display their cultural and economic importance for society as a whole and provide support for the professional sphere.
This month of June featured the 51st edition, with a ceremony hosted by Òscar Dalmau and broadcast live via the ADG-FAD YouTube channel. Of the almost 1,000 projects entered, 264 won prizes: 1 Grand Laus, 1 Young Talent, 30 Gold Laus, 68 Silver, 160 Bronze and 4 Laus Aporta.
In this case, the Grand Laus was awarded within the Aporta category to the project ‘Guide pour construire facilement le mobilier d’école au sud du Sénégal’, by the Bendita Gloria studio for Foundawtion, the jury highlighting the project’s adaptation to the premises of the prize and its impeccable graphic resolution.
As for the Students’ Laus, for projects by the youngest creators, the Young Talent prize was award to ‘Al pie de la letra’ (‘To the Letter) by Sergio Lairisa, a student of the BAU School of the University Design Centre. Here the jury praised the learning of the design sector attained through exploitation and research.
