designaustria first launched the Joseph Binder Award – an international competition with a focus on graphic design and illustration – in 1996. It is named after one of the most outstanding graphic designers and illustrators active in Austria between the two World Wars, who subsequently also revolutionized visual communication in the United States. The 2014 award winners will be displayed at the Symposium.
