Graphis 100 Best Annual Reports Award: Something Missing

I'm proud to mention that a Graphis 100 Best Annual Reports 2011 Silver Award has gone to an annual report designed by the Japan-based agency KF Design. My artwork had a role in the design, used on the cover and inside of the report for QOL Co., Ltd., a Japanese pharmaceutical/retail company, seen here:
 

But, if you're thumbing through the Graphis annual, you won't be getting the full picture. Somehow they printed only a tiny, cropped portion of the cover of the award-winning work (and my illustrations). Doh!

An unfortunate editing error, to say the least. (Also, I was credited as the IllusTATOR; so throw a funny typo into the mix, too.)

Aside from the recognition, this is an ideal opportunity to mention the subsequent 2010 and 2011 Annual Reports for QOL Co, both of which utilize my illustrations in their design, also created by KF Design. 

Hats off to QOL for going in such a playful direction with their communications materials and to KF Design for being recognized for their high-quality work.
