Now into its fifth year, the latest Hiiibrand Awards winners were announced just before the summer. It was a pleasure to sit on the judging panel, and here are a few identities that stood out.

Hvass&Hannibal's identity for Copenhagen Central Library children's department

I was particularly keen on this 2013 project for the children’s department in Copenhagen’s central library. It was designed by Hvass&Hannibal (visitors to Creative Review, Brand New, and The Fox is Black are likely to be familiar with it).

Another playful one, created in 2013 for boda, a “forest garden kindergarten.” It was designed by Chengdu Ridunshe Culture & Communication.

Then there’s this for Abracadabra, a store selling carnival costumes. Designed by Art’Performance back in 2011, the carnival mask symbolises mystery and a change of appearance.
