Dan Olson, Communication Arts Judge 2017

Dan Olson, Studio MPLS founder and creative director, had the distinct honor of serving as one of five judges for the 2017 Communication Arts Design Annual competition—the largest and most prestigious design competition in the world. The judges faced the daunting (and humbling) task of narrowing 3,800+ entries down to 150 selections to be featured in the 2017 Design Annual.

The judging took place at CA’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California. “The Coyne family continues to oversee the contest and made the entire judging experience one of the most enjoyable opportunities of my career,” says Dan. We were also honored to have our work for Woodford Reserve featured in the 2017 Design Annual.
