This Award recognises the design team who can demonstrate technically brilliant and outstanding design during the past year on a title or brand. The judges will be looking for evidence of how major design innovation and excellence during the year has supported the success of the title or brand and how the design translates across other platforms. Entrants should also explain how resources have been used for maximum impact as well as the relevance of the design to the target audience. Judges will also be looking for coherence, excellence in the use of photography, typography and illustration and other design elements.
