min's 2012 Editorial & Design Award Winners Include a 'Thing'


Wednesday, November 14, 2012


This morning (Nov. 14), min presented its fourth Editorial & Design Awards at a breakfast in New York's Marriott Marquis Hotel. Among the most graphic was Popular Mechanics' app-winning Re-Engineering the Human, with a "helping hand" reminiscent of The Addams Family's "Thing." For the record, the issue (print version shown here) was April 2012--not the ghoulish October.

Graphic in a different way was Firehouse's b2b app-winning display of--naturally--a smouldering building.
