Graphic Design in Japan 2011
JAGDA, one of the largest design organizations in Asia, has introduced outstanding designs in the Graphic Design in Japan annual every year since 1981. These designs, selected through a strict selection process, are introduced with a large number of pictures and are recommended with confidence. Over 1,000 designs are categorized and presented with the purpose of production for each work. Designers and their works are laid out in Japanese alphabetic order. In addition, a list of JAGDA members by prefecture and indexes of copywriters and photographers are included. This is an unprecedented design almanac, a collection of world-class graphic designs created by Japanese designers, which also serves as a database.

JAGDA Awards 2011
Starting in 2008, the JAGDA Awards were launched in reflection of JAGDA’s commitment to commend and record each year’s outstanding works of graphic design – an undertaking JAGDA considers to be among its important activities. The JAGDA Awards are presented to several particularly significant works among those submitted for entry in the Annual that garnered the most number of votes in their specific category. This year, the Award was given to the following five works: “9h nine hours Teramachi Kyoto”, “12 Letters”, “Rodchenko & Stepanova; Visions of Constructivism”, “Mikita Apple Farm” and “Kitagawa Issay”.
JAGDA New Designer Awards 2011
The JAGDA New Designer Awards were established in 1983 with the goals of calling attention to outstanding young designers and vitalizing the realm of graphic design. Winners are selected each year from among all entrants who have not reached their 40th birthday as of the end of October of the judging year. The 2011 awards represent the 29th to date. As a result of the strict selection process with 29 nominees, Daigo Daikoku, Yui Takada and Tentaku Masashi were selected as the award-winning designers.
“This One!” is a system whereby all participants on the judging panel comment freely on one work among the year’s entries that attracted their interest in particular.
A list of JAGDA members by prefecture is included.
