A Moral Truth wins award for best typography at the PANZ Book Design Awards


Designers Gideon Keith and Carla Sy took out the PANZ Book Design Award for Best Typography for their work on A Moral Truth. The judges noted: ‘A great use of typesetting to immediately call to the content of the book, the designer has deftly balanced the typographic sensibilities of newspapers with the varied demands of a non-traditional piece of text. Headlines, clippings, quotations, lists, and other material maintain their original hierarchies and atmosphere but are brought together in a cohesive whole. The use of ellipsis as a repeated device alongside the halftone dot illustrations is a small example of the wit.’

How to Mend a Kea, designed by Janet Hunt, and Turangawaewae, designed by Kate Barraclough, were Highly Commended in the Best Educational Book section.

Congratulations to all.
