Within the Design & Package Design medium will lie the 'Verbal Identity' category, one of two categories making its debut this year. The introduction of the 'Verbal Identity' category is a reaction from LIA to the 'What About Naming?' campaign launched by New York-based brand agency CBX. Also new to the 2015 Design competition is the 'Product Development' category.
