A Decade of American Graphic Design Awards

4 Jan

We Can't Afford to Treat Our ADHD

Adults section opener, ADDitude Magazine, Winter 2017

 

For the tenth consecutive year, I’m proud to be a winner of American Graphic Design Awards from GDUSA Magazine. I received two awards for my work in ADDitude Magazine in the 2017 competition.

Just under 10,000 entries were submitted, and only 15% were recognized with Certificates of Excellence. Receiving multiple awards is rare. My entries are published in the printed December 2017 issue of GDUSA, and in the online and digital American Graphic Design Awards Annuals.

Thank you to the Editors and Judges from GDUSA, as well as to Susan Caughman, New Hope Media’s CEO and ADDitude Editor-in-Chief, Wayne Kayln, ADDitude Editor, Ron Anteroinen, ADDitude Art Director, and all of my colleagues on the ADDitude team.

I’m pleased to be working on a new freelance project as the Consulting Creative Director of ADDitude magazinePart of New Hope Media, ADDitude is the premier media network dedicated to providing authoritative, in-depth information coupled with practical, real-life solutions for families and individuals impacted by attention deficit and learning differences. The Winter 2016 issue is my first and will soon be arriving to subscribers, physician’s offices, schools and special educators, newsstands, and other places where ADHD families turn for help. I find great satisfaction as a publication designer when I can work as part of a collaborative team that presents readers with the information they’re looking for, and does it in a creative and supportive way that makes the content easily accessible. I’m pleased with the results, and look forward to working with the ADDitude staff on this fun and important publication.

GDUSA AGDA 2016 Award Letter and CertificateFor the ninth consecutive year, I’m proud to have won an American Graphic Design Award From GDUSA Magazine. The award is for a 3D layer project that I created at the ADIM Conference which took place in April at Adobe Headquarters in San Jose, CA, and had the theme, “20,000 Layers Under the Sea.” (My projects from past ADIMs also won in 2013, 2014, and 2015.)

The media used are printed ink and plexiglass, which is also laser cut and etched. My solution is typography driven, displaying a quote from the poem, Rime of the Ancient Mariner (text of 1834), By Samuel Taylor Coleridge, on the center panel. Waves are etched on the front panel, which also has a window cut out, and a water pattern is printed in color on the rear panel.

Just under 10,000 entries were submitted to the competition, and only 15% were recognized with Certificates of Excellence. My work will be published in the printed, online, and digital American Graphic Design Awards Annuals.

Thank you to the Editors and Judges from GDUSA, as well as to Russell BrownAdobeThe Van Heyst GroupEpsonUniversal Laser SystemsRoland, and all my fellow attendees for the inspirational experience that was ADIM16.
