In honor of our 50th anniversary, GDUSA conducted a nationwide survey of the graphic design community. Our first issue of the year focused on the most influential designers of the past 50 years. Our next issue features your favorite design projects and logos and will be in the mail and online in the next few weeks. Just to whet your appetite here are your top 10 favorite album covers of the past half-century.

We thought long and hard about how best to note our anniversary without making it about us. Out of the process two points emerged. First, this accident of the calendar presents an opportunity to celebrate the past, present and future of the graphic design community. Second, we think the best way to do this is to ask your opinion on some provocative and fun topics because, frankly, you know more than we do and we just like hearing from you. Accordingly, in each print and app edition of GDUSA this year, we will present selected results of a massive poll — being conducted right now — about who you respect and what you admire.
