A record-setting year for AAF District 10’s most-awarded B2B agency continues with six shiny awards from the 2023 Graphis Design Annual.

Graphis is an international publisher dedicated to discovering, publishing, and promoting the world’s most significant and influential creative from the greatest talents in Design, Advertising, Photography, and Illustration. Submissions are juried by an international panel of industry professionals, and award-winners are selected for publication in the Graphis Award Annuals and Journals—a series of fine-art-quality hardbound books.

In its best Graphis year ever, Spire was awarded one Gold, three Silvers, and two Honorable Mentions in the international competition.

The Graphis honors continue what is Spire’s most lucrative awards year yet. The awards shelf now holds six AVA Digital, nine AAF Dallas, three AAF District 10, 13 Hermes, one Telly, one AAF National, three DFW AMA, two DSVC, and now six Graphis awards for a total of 44 industry awards in 2022.

“This was Spire’s best Graphis showing in our agency’s history,” said Jason James, Associate Creative Director. “Our team continues to elevate our B2B reputation and solidify Spire as one of the most-awarded B2B agencies in the country.”

There were 487 awards from the United States in the international competition, and Spire won six of the 52 from Texas. The Howard Hughes 10th Anniversary Mail also received an honorable mention in the Printed Invitation category. The hardbound 2023 Graphis Design Annual that features Spire hits bookshelves in November 2022.

Graphis magazine was first published in 1944 by Walter Herdeg and Dr. Walter Amstutz in Zürich, Switzerland. In 1952, Mr. Herdeg introduced the Graphis Annual (Design with Illustration) and in that same year, he was invited into the Alliance Graphique International. After a split from Dr. Walter Amstutz in 1964, Mr. Herdeg became the sole publisher. In 1966, he introduced the Graphis Photo Annual (Design with Photography), followed seven years later by the Graphis Poster Annual. Today, the international publisher is located in New York City.
