News: One Design Honored with Three STA 100 Awards including Judges Choice

CHICAGO, NOVEMBER 20, 2020 — One Design is honored to announce that three recent projects have been recognized through The Society of Typographic Arts’ prestigious 2020 STA 100 competition as among “the finest examples of communication design and typography created around the world.”

Our work for Confluence Chicago was recognized by Co-Founder & CCO of Design Army Pum Lefebure's as her Judges Choice award winner.

Projects for AIGA Chicago's Mentor Program and Valo Health were also included in the set of 100 honorees.


Now in its 41st year, The Society of Typographic Arts’ STA 100 competition seeks to identify and honor the finest examples of communication design and typography created around the world. The competition jury selects and presents only the 100 best examples of typographic excellence produced in the previous year.

Work for Valo Health, Confluence Chicago, and AIGA Chicago’s Mentorship Program received awards in the Society of Typographic Arts’ 2020 STA 100 competition.
Confluence Chicago was honored with one of four judges choice awards, selected by Pum Lefebure of Design Army.


The 2020 jury of peer professionals—including Tré Seals, Pum Lefebure, Pablo Juncadella, Juan Pastor Rovira—represents a wide range of experiences and expertise that demonstrate careers of depth and substance. While they are diverse in their experiences, they are united in that each has made and continues to make a significant commitment to teaching what they have learned and applied.


Since it was founded in Chicago on October 17, 1927, the STA has existed to encourage excellence and professionalism in all aspects of design, printing and typography. Originally a chapter of the New York-based American Institute of Graphic Arts, in 1927 the Society of Typographic Arts created its own identity as an organization of Chicago’s leading professional designers, typographers, and printers.
