Two Wins for Deforest Group: 2022 GDUSA Package Design Awards



The 2022 Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) Package Design Awards have been handed out, and we’re proud to say that Deforest Group has once again garnered two of these prestigious honors.


With more than 2,750 entries, this was the largest and most selective GDUSA competition in its 59 years — with a highly selective Top Ten Percent receiving a Certificate of Excellence.


The GDUSA Package Design Awards “celebrates beauty and style — and the power of effective and inspired design to forge an emotional link with the buyer at the moment of truth,” according to Gordon Kaye, publisher of GDUSA. For almost six decades, GDUSA has spotlighted areas of excellence with a variety of design competitions for creative professionals in multiple categories.


One of our winning projects was for Federal Signal’s new Firebolt LED Beacon. The design utilized the center shape within FS (Federal Signal) logo that could be transformed and utilized in different ways across Federal Signal collateral and packaging. It also introduced forward driving lines to capture the excitement of an emergency vehicle racing towards a crisis. Furthermore, the lines are a metaphor for the continual advances Federal Signal brings to the industry through product innovation and technology.


Congratulations to all involved in our award-winning projects!
