Atomicdust Wins Eight GDUSA 2020 American Graphic Design Awards

Atomicdust enters several competitions each year—and Graphic Design USA’s annual American Graphic Design Awards is one of our favorites.

We’re big fans of GDUSA (you should see the stacks of back issues at our office), and our team is always honored when the organization acknowledges our work.

This year, we were thrilled to hear our work earned eight American Graphic Design Awards, GDUSA’s flagship competition now in its 57th year. The 2020 competition received more than 10,000 entries, with only the top 10% selected as winners.

Our winning projects included branding, web design, environmental graphics, package design, social media graphics and more, and we’re honored both by the individual awards and the diverse categories of design for which we were recognized. Keep scrolling to see the winning work.
