Someone Should Give These People a Medal

We’re giddy with glee about today’s official announcement of the 2006 AIGA Medalists (especially since we’ve been keeping this a secret for a few weeks now). Please stand as we congratulate this exceptional roster of designers who have been honored with the most prestigous award in graphic design. And the winners are…

Michael Bierut, recognized for his thoughtful leadership, dedication to the profession, and inspired advocacy of the power and influence of design. (And we might add UnBeige BFF-ness.)
Pentagram, New York City

Rick Valicenti, recognized for the passion and intelligence of his influential work, his inspiration to his colleagues, and his mentorship to a generation of students.
3st, Chicago

Lorraine Wild, recognized for her work as an influential and inspiring designer, writer, historian, and teacher of design.
Green Dragon Office, Los Angeles

The Medalists will be honored at the Design Legends Gala, October 25, 2006 in New York. This award will surely prevent any of these designers from slipping into obsolescence. (Steve, you can send that $10 right back, care of Boo Ya.)
