The ADG Laus Awards

There are eight categories of the ADG Laus Awards: Editorial and art direction, Packaging, Branding, Aporta, Graphic communication and advertising, Audiovisual, Digital and Students. In each category, projects compete to obtain the Bronze Laus, Silver Laus and Gold Laus. Those awarded with a Gold Laus in each category can win a Grand Laus and, in the case of students, a Young Talent . This year the juries have not highlighted any project with a Grand Laus among those awarded Gold because they did not reach unanimity in the votes. In this year's edition, 41 proposals have been selected with a Golden Laus among all categories.

The Bakoom studio takes two Golds for the Latent Festival from Terrassa, in the categories of Graphic Communication and Advertising, and in Digital for breaking with the graphic line expected of a design festival and giving value to the complicity, proximity and resilience of a space in extinction.

In the Graphic Communication and Advertising category, the Golden Laus also stands out for two projects that are very identifiable with their territories, Palouzié Studio for the design of the campaign of the National Day of Catalonia 2023, from the Generalitat of Catalonia, and the Valencian studio Democràcia, for the graphic image of the failures 2023 for the Valencia City Council.

On the other hand, in the Editorial and art direction category, the two Golds that the studio wins stand out Albert Romagosa for two very different works: the book of the 50 years of Muebles 114 and the graphics for the Tallers Oberts BCN festival.

In the Audiovisual category, the Golden Laus stands out for the “Chess + Couple” project, for the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival, from the China agency, a surreal tribute to the global impact of Hitchcock's work.

En Packaging, the jury wanted to highlight the work of Ona Studio to Anchovies Agur, which proposes to differentiate its packaging from those of its competitors through the color and texture of a high relief.

Finally, the Laus Young Talent, aimed at students, is for the wine brand creation project Divine, by Víctor García Gutiérrez, from the Escola Universitària de les Arts ERAM – UdG, where design is understood as a tool for transformation in specific contexts and environments, and can become the voice of a territory.
