The Department of English's spring 2018 course promotion campaign, designed by Communications Specialist Breanne LeJeune, has received two graphic design awards: The HOW In-House Design Award and the Print Regional Design Award. In 2017, Graphic Design USA selected LeJeune's work for the department for four American Graphic Design Awards.
HOW In-House Design Award
The Spring 2018 Course Promotion Campaign was chosen as one of 70 Merit award-winning designs in the most recent HOW In-House Design Awards, which recognizes the very best creative work produced by designers doing in-house work for corporations, associations and organizations. The 70 winning projects were evaluated by business category by three judges—Meghan Newell, senior art director at Lyft, Mike Rice, creative director at Amazon, former senior creative director at Whole Foods, former global design director at PepsiCo, former global creative director at P&G and Viet Huynh, communication designer at Slack—with support from the HOW editorial staff. These projects will gain exposure in the all-new HOW + Print book, The Best of Design, scheduled to be released in summer of 2019, as well as online at PRINTmag.com.
Print Regional Design Award
The Spring 2018 Course Promotional Campaign was also selected as a regional winner in the 2018 Print Regional Design Awards by a panel of seven judges: Justin Peters, Rebeca Méndez, Nancy Skolos, Sagi Haviv, Alexander Isley, Chad Michael and Gail Anderson.
