ELLE´s London Issue scoops design award

ELLE beat 27 contenders to win its first D&AD Award, announced during the recent annual D&AD Design Awards 2010 in London. ELLE was awarded in the ‘Magazine and Newspaper Design’ category for its ‘London Issue’ which celebrated ‘London Talent – 25 Years of Our Creative Capital’ and featured 25 specially commissioned posters displayed at key stations on the London Underground. ELLE’s award-winning ‘London Issue’ featured limited edition covers designed in collaboration with British designers – as well as London’s Mayor Boris Johnson and singer Lily Allen, both appearing on the October 2009 cover. ELLE is the only commercial fashion publication to have won a D&AD award in this category.
