Last night the winners of the 2013 Curry Stone Design Prize were announced at Architecture for Humanity’s “Design Like You Give a Damn” conference in San Francisco. (AFH was honored with Curry Stone’s inaugural Vision Award, previously announced.) Established in 2008 by the architect Clifford Curry and his wife, H. Delight Stone, the awards honor designs that improve people’s lives and the world.
Timed to this year’s announcement, Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and team have designed a new website for the Prize, building on the identity they created in 2010. The site presents a group of headlines that sum up the ideas behind the winning projects and leads into a series of video documentaries. The approach quickly shows what the Curry Stone Design Prize is about and how designers are helping to change the world. We’ve also adapted the site graphics to a poster, seen above.
Project Team: Michael Bierut, partner-in-charge and designer; Aron Fay, designer.
