Lifetime Achievement Award 2013 of the Federal Republic of Germany for Uwe Loesch
We are happy to announce that the internationally acclaimed and multiple award-winning graphic designer Uwe Loesch received the Lifetime Achievement Award 2013 for his extraordinary work and career. "Intelligence can actually be entertaining! The proof of this can be found in the posters designed by Uwe Loesch as they are carried by subtleness, double entendre and true artistic design. Uwe Loesch is the first German graphic designer to blur the borderlines between art and design, politics and comedy, and maybe even between left and right." Fons Hickmann, Member of the Jury
