Rule29’s Chief Evangelist, Justin Ahrens, spoke at the 2021 creative session for the ECPA PubU conference. During the week-long online conference of webinars where you learn from publishing experts who work in different disciplines. Justin’s inspirational session, “Matters of Wonder,” was an exploration of wonder and a challenge on how we can shift the way we see to be more open to the wonder around us.
Justin also had the honor to be one of the emcees for the ECPA’s annual Top Shelf Book awards. The book covers are judged by top designers by their merits in appropriateness for the market, level of conceptual thinking, and quality of execution. The winners are announced and presented with an award at ECPA’s annual PubU event, where the design community gathers to learn and network. Justin joined ECPA’s president, Jeff Crosby, in a lively and fun announcement of all the winners. To check out some of the amazing book covers that won, you can explore here.
