Competition, Featuring Professional Designers, Sponsored by Graphic Design USA – Posted 7/21/15
â€śThe Promethean,â€ť the award-winning County College of Morris (CCM) student literary magazine, has received another honor from Graphic Design USA.
The 2013-14 edition of the magazine won a silver award in the education category of the 2015 American Inhouse Design Awards. This is the fourth consecutive year the student publication has been so honored.
â€śI am very proud of this project,â€ť said Professor Kathleen McNeil, faculty advisor for â€śThe Promethean.â€ť â€śIt offers students the opportunity to apply and expand upon skills learned in the classroom to a professional, printed project. It also serves as a showcase for the college students whose work is selected for inclusion. I constantly hear very favorable comments from people inside and outside of the college community about the quality and variety of the visual and literary work produced by our students.â€ť
The awards program is sponsored by Graphic Design USA, a monthly trade publication for graphic designers that has sponsored national design competitions for 50 years. â€śThe Prometheanâ€ť was judged against work produced by professional designers, as there are no student-only categories. The education category includes materials created for an educational institution, many created by design consultancies, not students. In a typical year, about 15 percent of the entries are selected by the jury chosen for that year’s contest.
The 2013-2014 student staff for â€śThe Prometheanâ€ť was made up of graphic design students Duvan Agudelo, of Morris Plains; Jesse Amici, of Randolph; Chelsea Faresich, of Randolph; Kevin Nunes, of Roseland; and Robert Rivera, of Rockaway.
