Two 2018 American Graphic Design Awards

6 Dec


I am proud to have won two 2018 American Graphic Design Awards from GDUSA Magazine. The winners are features from ADDitude Magazine, and this marks the eleventh consecutive year that I have been a recipient.

Roughly 10,000 entries were submitted, and highly selective 10% of projects were recognized with Certificates of Excellence. Receiving multiple awards is rare. My entries will be published in the printed 55th Anniversary Design Annual, the Website and Mobile Showcase, and downloadable Digital Edition.

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.

SPD-U: Five Questions for…

14 May


Just what do magazine makers do, and why do people want to make magazines? I’ve been editing a blog series on careers in publication design for SPD-U, the Student Outreach arm of the Society of Publication Designers, where you can find the answers. We’re building a diverse group of pros who, by answering the same set of five questions, shed light on many of the potential careers in the industry. In their own words, some of the top creatives in the business, like Andrea Dunham of People, and Don Kinsella of Men’s Health, explain why they do what they do, and give advice to anyone who wants to do it, too. Check out Five Questions for… to get invaluable advice, from them, and others, and to see some of their excellent work.
