Congratulations to Aaron Beehre of the School of Fine Arts Design Studio for his success at the 2016 PANZ Book Design Awards.
Convening judge Odessa Owens, Programme Leader for the Whitireia Publishing Programme, was joined on the judges’ panel by Arch MacDonnell, Founder and Creative Director of Inhouse Design, and Rowan Sommerset, Illustrator and Book Designer for Dreamboat Books.
All three judges were singularly impressed by 101 Works of Art, winner of the HarperCollins Publishers Award for Best Cover, designed by Aaron Beehre.
“The cover is breath-taking and the unique folding of the dust jacket is genius, revealing triangular details of highlights from the collection. It’s also completely reversible allowing a different composition of alternative images,” said MacDonnell.
