frog’s ‘Future of Work’ Issue Receives Award of Excellence from Communication Arts

Essays on Designing for Productivity and Empowerment in Modern Workplace Wins in Design Annual 56

San Francisco–frog today announced that ‘Future of Work’ was honored with the Award of Excellence in the editorial category of Communication Arts’ Design Annual 56.

‘Future of Work’ is the 19th issue of DesignMind, authored by frog designers, strategists and technologists across the globe, whose collective experiences helped bring the publication to life. The issue inspires new solutions to changing dynamics in the workplace and empowers executives to implement better tools along the way. As technology is reshaping the world of work, frog imagined how workflows, devices and organizational structures could shift to improve employees’ experiences and ultimately transform businesses.

“The essays in ‘Future of Work’ are an extension of the work frog is doing globally to solve problems and anticipate the future in the workplace; enabling organizations and employees to be happier, more creative, and more productive in their pursuits,” said Emily Chong, Vice President of Global Marketing at frog. “We are thrilled to be recognized by Communications Arts and look forward to continuing to convey our rich know-how through our editorial efforts.”

Of the 4,083 entries submitted to the awards competition, only 153 were selected for recognition. An esteemed judging panel of creative and design professionals determined the winners on the basis of thoughtful and masterful design work in a variety of mediums – from editorial to public service to graphics.

Excerpts from frog’s ‘Future of Work’ will be exhibited in the September/October 2015 issue of Communication Arts along with the other honorable winners.
