01.CHOICE design award
CHOICE Magazine won a prestigious Maggie Award for excellence in cover design on Tuesday.
Our October 2011 cover walked away with the coveted award for its simple kitten image advertising our hugely popular pet insurance article.
The Specialist Magazine category was shortlisted by a panel of judges, which included publishing guru Ita Buttrose, and then voted for by the public, and we are hugely proud that the first issue sporting our new logo won the vote.
This is the second, consecutive year CHOICE has won a Maggie and it is a great reward for all the hard work that goes into putting together the print magazine. Particular credit must go to Gene Ross, our in-house photographer, Maria Baron, the art director at the time, and the other members of the Design Team: Danny Wynne, Jennifer Kilgour, Art Woottiarporn and Ren Matthews.
Of course, there is much work on a cover in addition to the design effort and thanks go to Karina Bray for the coverlines, Brendan Mays for writing the pet insurance article and the whole editing and verification team for making sure the finished product leaves the building as polished as possible.
