The winners of the University & College Designers Association 2013 design competition were announced at the end of August, and William & Mary’s Office of Creative Services was twice given the nod for excellence in communications design.
The office’s team of communications professionals is particularly proud, as UCDA gave awards to a mere 18 percent of this year's submissions.
“Receiving awards of this caliber makes me especially proud to work with such a talented group of individuals," said Tina Coleman, director of creative services. "Many times, design entries are submitted by schools that employ an independent design firm. William & Mary is fortunate to have in-house designers that can compete for awards at the same level.”
The University & College Designers Association (UCDA) is one of a handful of organizations that host communications award competitions for higher education each year. UCDA is unique in that it focuses exclusively on design, whereas its counterpart organizations evaluate strategy, feedback, and the overall impact that communication endeavors have on the goals of institutions.
William & Mary's UCDA award-winning projects this year were:
- Scholarship Luncheon Invitation (Award of Excellence in the Special Event category)
- 2012 Holiday Website (Award of Excellence in the Website: Entire Site category)
