Established in 1995, the competition honors the life and work of Bruce W. Honeycutt, who died January 12, 1994 at the very young age of 40. During his career, he served as the Art Director of Details and Spy magazines, as well as on the staffs of Vanity Fair and GQ. His work has been recognized by SPD, AIGA, the Art Directors Club of New York, and by magazines such as Print, Advertising Age, and Adweek. He also taught publication design at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

A huge thanks to everyone who entered!
  • Very nice work. Congrats to the winners! If you entered and didn't win, hang on to those files. When you're ready, take a look, and ask yourself, "what would I do differently?" Then, go back into the piece and rework it. You'll be surprised at how your solutions will develop, and you just might get a portfolio piece out of it.

  • Nancy Stamatopoulos

    WOW, at first glance I thought I was looking at professional work. Congrats to the winners! You are now ambassadors for Taylor U., OCAD and R.I.T. Your professors should be proud. BTW, this is a small sampling of a lot of spectacular entries that came to SPD. Kudos to the judges to be able to narrow this down to the top 3, (don't know how they did it.)
