The CCA national contest assesses the writing, photography, video and graphic design skills of cooperative communications teams.
The 2018 CCA contest had 610 entries from 58 different companies. Local cooperative Walton EMC took home several trophies including two second-place awards for publications designed by mPrint Design:
-Brochure Award, commercial services brochure
-Employee Publication Award, Two-Way Feed newsletter
The awards are judged by other cooperatives. They are conscious of industry and owner-member needs, so their recognition is especially meaningful. Congrats Walton EMC!
The EPA announced its WaterSense 2016 awards and Athens was represented! Congrats to the Athens-Clarke County Public Utility’s Water Conservation Office, named Promotional Partner for its Certified Blue Program. The EPA has nearly 1,700 WaterSense Partners and only 20 were awarded this year. mPrint worked with the Conservation Office to create brochures, site graphics, coasters, napkins, decals and certificates for Certified Blue – an innovative recognition program for area bars and eateries with good water stewardship.
Certified Blue design also won the Savvy Award for Excellence for Best Use of a Promotional Item. The Savvy Award was presented to Athens-Clarke County in September, 2016 in San Antonio.
connecting art + community
Jessica Magnarella, designer and owner of mPrint Design, was recently selected for the board of directors of the Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC).
The non-profit organization strives to integrate Athens’ artists with area educational systems, economy, and culture. AAAC collaborates with area art organizations, offers artist grants and sponsors events that increase our community’s exposure to art. As a board member, Jessica will help with promotion, fundraising and events. She says, “art has been so integral to my life and such an empowering force – I’d love for others to be emboldened by it too. The AAAC has a 20 year presence in Athens. I’m looking forward to working with them for community-centered arts.” Visit athensarts.org
