Judging comments:
"The Feature is fantastic! Bold photos, the black background and bold colors are eye-catching but do not distract from the images and the story being told. Great job!"

"The design team made a bold and risky choice with the black background, but in this case the results are extraordinary. The final product looks incredibly sleek, and the photos really stand out without being overwhelming."

 

 

Silver
NCAA Champion
Storybook endings/Our Top 10 Most Dramatic Finishes
Arnel Reynon

"This layout contains a lot of imagery and information, but the designers’ choices for photos (particularly the scale) and type provide a great sense of organization without diminishing the dramatic theme."

"Nice use of type and photography!"

Front Cover, Digital Imagery

Gold
Government Technology
Killer App
Kelly Martinelli, Tom McKeith

 

Judging comments:
"This is an intriguing composition - the bold headline serves well as a counterpoint to the GPS image and cord. The drop shadow and the treatment given to the cord help those particular elements to 'pop.'"

"The image pops!"

 

 

Silver
Corporate Event
Absolut Gets Buzzed
Corporate Event Staff

 

Judging comments:
"Great cover, the digital image really pops! The text is definitely the second read and helps to draw your attention to the image."

"The vivid color treatment of the photo really grabs the readers’ attention. It also balances the rest of the layout’s more somber tones."

 

 

Bronze
National Real Estate Investor
September Cover 2008
Jaun Mims, Matt Valley, Sibley Fleming, Denise  Kalette

 

Judging comments:
"The feature article has a particularly somber tone, and this layout is consistent with that. This design shows that it’s not always necessary to use a bright/bold/colorful scheme to get attention."

"Love the image! The dramatic black and white digital image really sets the mood of the story."

Front Cover, Illustration

Gold
Convenience Store News
Convenience Store News Green Issue
Ana Paula Rodrigues

 

 Judging comments:
"This is an interesting approach to a “green” themed issue - the level of detail in the illustration is particularly impressive."

"Fantastic illustration! Very eyecatching and impactful."

 

 

Silver
California Schools
Teaching Technology
Ralph Butler, Illustrator; Kerry Macklin, Senior Designer

 

 Judging comments:
"This illustration is a great example of taking straightforward subject matter, rendering it with a slightly stylized approach and coming up with a successful design. The image doesn’t look overworked, or like the illustrator was trying too hard."

"Nice photograph. Great lighting; simple but eyecatching."

 

 

Bronze
Physicians Practice
October 2008, Fixing the Leaks
Bill Ellis

 

  Judging comments:
"Very nice placement of the illustration. Clean and crisp illustration."

"The bright colorful tone of the water droplet does a great job centering the composition, and the white space is just enough without making the layout look sparse."

 

 

Honorable Mention
TravelAge West
Card Mill Confidential
Jill Shiffert, Graphic Designer; Ed Reynolds, Illustrator

 


Front Cover, Photograph

Gold
Veterinary Forum
Food Trial Pitfalls
Jennifer Barlow, Art Director

 

 Judging comments:
"Definitely one of those photos that inspires readers to say 'now THAT’S something you don’t see every day!' The decision to utilize a black-and-white image really works—if this image were in color, it might be so busy that it would detract."

"Fantastic photo, love the sense of humor in it. Very eye-catching."

 

 

Silver
Graphic Arts Monthly
Premier Print Awards, December 2008
Anne LoCascio, Bill Esler, Classic Color

 

 Judging comments:
"Utilizing an amazing image that isn’t easily identifiable can be a risky venture for any designer, but this image is so captivating, and the shadows/highlights are just perfect for catching the details."

"Nice photograph, great lighting. Simple but effective."

 

 

Bronze
TED Magazine
Plug Into Growth by Going Green
Randi Vincent

 

  Judging comments:
"This photo’s success is to serve as a strong frame for the layout. The designers did a good job of cropping the image—it still retains the compelling elements, but allows for ample space for headlines/type."

"Creative concept. Cover is unique and attention getting."

Buyers Guide
Bill Ellis

 

Judging comments:
"Fantastic cover, love the creative illustration. A new way to present a Buyers' Guide cover. Great job."

"This layout does a great job of balancing busy elements and type with ample white space. The vivid orange colors of the masthead and subheads matching with the orange cup—great job creating a cohesive color scheme."

 

 

Silver
Exhibitor Magazine
The 2009 Buyer's Guide
Exhibitor Magazine Staff

 

Judging comments:
"Great cover, eyecatching image."

"When a cover photo is so vivid and interesting that it makes readers do a 'double take,' it’s tempting for designers to utilize equally strong type and other elements. In this case, the designers did this photo justice and the result is a very eye-catching and successful layout."

 

 

Bronze

Opening Page or Spread

Gold
California Schools
A Growing Trend
Susan Sugnet, Graphic Designer

 

Judging comments:
"The designers of this spread have a great grasp on the KISS principle. Sometimes all that’s needed is a strong photo, well-proportioned type, and just a hint of the designer’s personal style—and this layout brings all of that to the table."

"Fantatic layout! Simple, eye-catching and great type treatment. Great job."

 

 

Silver
NZ Retail
New Zealand Retail, ARE Design Awards
Editor, Trudy Cliff

 

Judging comments:
"This layout has a lot going on, which is common with a lot of “awards” articles. However, the spread is successful at balancing a bold headline, substantial body copy, a great eye-catching photo for focus, smaller photos—the designers were able to take all that and come up with a piece that looks sleek."

 

 

Bronze
Professionally Speaking
le français Tidied Up
Radonic Rodgers Communications and Design; Marie-Eve Tremblay

 

Judging comments:
"The illustration style is reminiscent of older French cartoons, which really adds to the spread. The type treatments for the headline and body copy work well without distracting from the eye-catching illustrations."

"Great illustration that gives humor to the very creative layout."

Gold
Atlantic Business Magazine
Contents Page, Volume 19  # 5
Jason Miller, Art Director

 

Judging comments:
"I really like how they used the cover story image as the background and pulled the colors from that photo. It makes the TOC look like a feature and will draw the reader into the cover story and other articles. Great job!"

"A very effect layout with all of the right elements - emphasis on the feature, intriguing photos, color blocks to break up information and a clear sense of hierarchy."

"TOC has great organization and use of white space. Font choices are great and the photographs draw you into the stories on the page."

"Good use of the photo collage to anchor the spread; lots of white space gives the table of contents a clean, crisp look that’s easy on the eyes."
