Publications and Creative Services brings home the gold
ASU's Office of Publications and Creative Services recently won three awards at the District IV CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) conference in Dallas. CASE is the international association of professionals who advance educational institutions. The PCS team is director Ron Looney, art director Mark Reeves, and graphic designers Heath Kelly and Mary Williams. The team took home the first place Gold level Grand Award in the category "Institutional Identity Programs" for the "Powering Minds" branding campaign. The monumental campaign included publications, logo-branded items, and the massive library banner depicting "The Scholar," the icon of the campaign. The team also scored two third place Bronze level Achievement Awards for a media/press kit and a two-color brochure. ASU's prize-winning entries vied against those of CASE member universities in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Beth Smith, executive director of the ASU Alumni Association, is the CASE District IV chair. For details about the projects and awards, see the NewsPage release.
