We've emerged from the proverbial smoke-filled room we enter every year around this time, and we present to you our four yearly honorees: Agency of the Year
, Digital Company of the Year
, Production Company of the Year
and Design Company of the Year
. We'll save the surprise for your click, but yes, those are Crispin Porter + Bogusky principals on the cover. As a strong corollary to the ads CPB did this year, its own design concerns are growing ever wider
. Don't forget to read about what books, movies and other non-ad things our honorees dug this year
, and stay tuned for the rest of the December issue as you peruse the webs and nurse your holiday party hangovers.
