July 28, 2006. Brooklyn. Huge was named one of the top interactive agencies worldwide in Taschen's new Icons titled Web Design: Studios. The agencies featured were selected for their impact on the industry as innovators. Taschen stated that the chosen firms "are professionals committed to both good design and results, and this is essentially making the web a better medium every day."
"It's an honor to be singled out by a cultural force like Taschen, who publishes the most influential work across the creative industries, from Picasso to Helmut Newton. Huge is incredibly pleased at being selected as one of the firms leading the design industry worldwide. At least part of the credit goes to our clients who have been visionary enough to trust us with their brands and allow us to be innovative in the development of their design strategies and solutions," said David Skokna, Creative Director at Huge.
The book showcased work by Huge for Atlantic Records, Hillier Architects and IKEA. Taschen evaluated more than 3,000 firms in selecting the 90 that they felt are "of the most prominent interactive studios worldwide: web firms that have worked out creative solutionsfor big and small customers all around the globe" through an "intensive collaboration of technical and creative resources".
"We've been following Huge's work since their early days. We've been consistently impressed with their cutting edge focus and sophisticated approach to the medium. They've developed into an industry leader in the areas of usability and internet strategy as well as design, and were a natural choice," said Julius Wiemann, Taschen editor.
