UVC had a great year in 2011, working with clients we love to create design and branding for meaningful campaigns, products, and companies. One of our favorite projects was the UN's 7 Billion Actions campaign, which encouraged people to take action to help the other 6,999,999,999 people on Earth. So, we were thrilled to see the banner we created for the campaign appear in Google's Zeitgeist 2011 Year In Review video. With over 7 million views on YouTube (not to mention over 300,000 people who have seen the banner in person in front of the UN headquarters in NY), it might just be our most-seen project to date. Check out the video to see our work (at the 0:10 mark) and the other events and campaigns that changed the world in 2011.
I was Googling myself recently. While I failed to find a copywriter looking for work, what I did uncover is even better. Apparently our work was included in the 2005 Graphis Design Annual book (anyone have a copy?). It's always nice to find prestigious international awards that you didn't even know you had won!
Our business cards were featured in the article "A business card is not just a paper rectangle anymore." (A statement we completely agree with.)
We just heard that Clean Combustion Technologies, an 800-page engineering textbook we produced for Alstom Power won a Bellringer award from the Publicity Club of New England. In case you missed it the first time, here are a few pics of the cover, hardcover, title page, chapter opener, a spread, and a diagram or two out of the hundreds that were created from scratch.
We just received a copy of the Word It Book which features my artwork, in response to the word "Virtue". I've been a longtime member of the Speak Up community, and it's an honor to be published in the book.
