Each year, Appleton Coated hosts the U360 Competition: a celebration of the best design work of the year printed on the iconic Utopia paper. The competition draws submissions from both in-house and creative agencies from a range of industries and applications to showcase the incredible flexibility the paper offers. The winners were selected by Appleton Coated’s Design Council–a panel of experts in print, production, and concept execution. Rule29 developed the theme and visual identity of his year’s competition, which was manifest in a showbook, social media assets, and event signage.

A big congratulations to the 2016 U360 winners, and a special thank you to Appleton Coated for once again allowing us to shape one of the most reputable design competitions around today.
