Best Illustration Design

Illustration can do more than just tell a story. It can create an entirely new world. From kids' book illustrations to a psychedelic universe, check out the masterful creativity behind this year's nominees.


Fitriann's bookmarks play with harmonious palettes and complementary color accents that make each one feel balanced. The light is a key visual element that focuses the viewer’s attention, while the textures give expressiveness to the composition. The series has its own identity and achieves a clear communication of the ideas, emotions and feelings behind the illustrations that go beyond objective criteria.

We’ve always adored Fitriann's (Fitriandhita) whimsical illustrations, and this bookmark series was no exception. Each design is so special with its own ornate mandala pattern on the back and a unique female character on the front. The illustrations bring literary passion to the forefront, evoking the magic and whimsy of a fairytale world. The perfect placeholder for a cozy night in.
