About Us

A new and exciting chapter has begun for book design in Australia.

Mission Statement

ABDA exists to support Australian book designers – to promote their work to, and connect with, the broader publishing community. We aim to discover and foster emerging talent. We will develop digital showcases, establish and maintain a national book design archive and host the national annual book design awards. ABDA will provide a virtual home for its members, offering news, forums, educational events and more. ABDA will be a dynamic network for industry professionals.

This website, launched in October 2015, aims to an online hub for the community, a showcase and advocate for Australian book design and, with its searchable archive of each year’s award categories, an invaluable resource for present and future Australian designers.
