The American InHouse Design Awards is the premier showcase for designers’ work. It is a unique opportunity for in-house design, marketing and communications departments within corporations, publishing houses, non-profits, universities and government agencies to be recognized for creativity, for the special challenges they face, and for their contributions to their businesses and institutions.
Past award winners include Aetna, Apple, BlueCross Blue Shield, Disney, Forbes Magazine, Geico Insurance, Harvard University, Yale University, Pepsi-Cola and Toyota.
