The Winter 2011 issue of Austin College Magazine received a Silver Award this spring at the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Region IV competition in the category of “Magazine Design, Complete Unit.” The Winter 2012 issue earned Silver for its cover design. Also garnering awards were the “Century of Science” logo (Gold) in the “Logo Design” category and the 2011 Profile (Silver Award) in the “General Institutional Literature” category.
Austin College also has won five gold awards from Graphis, the international journal of graphic design excellence. Two gold awards led to publication of the “think green” and “Bob Mason Classic” logos in LogoDesign8 and three gold awards were given in Poster Annual 2013 for Austin College theatre posters from the 2011-2012 season. The posters won additional recognition from the Dallas Society of Visual Communications with a Certificate of Excellence in the category of “Poster Series.”
Congratulations to the talented design staff of Austin College’s Advancement Communications office.
CASE liked the magazine, but what do readers think?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with comments and rationale about what is good and not so good about the current magazine, as well as any suggestions for future issues.
Consider all aspects of the publication: time of year it is received, what articles are included, online vs. print issues, “more stories about _________and less about _________,” etc.
Whatever the input or idea, send it by email for consideration. Budget constraints limit us to two print issues per year so that won’t increase, but beyond that, all suggestions are welcome.
Some alumni and friends (randomly selected) will receive an email with a link to a brief online survey about Austin College Magazine later this summer. All who receive the survey are asked to respond so that sufficient data can be obtained to better evaluate reader interest and satisfaction.
