MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology’s Office of Creative Services has earned an award of excellence in the American Graphic Design’s 2009 awards competition. The award was in the invitation design category and is in recognition for the team’s Uncommon Threads design for the university’s annual textile arts event.
The Creative Services team members include Judi Tintera, director; Rob Gribbroek, assistant director; Christena Callahan, university editor; and Kristie Kwong, print services coordinator. “We are honored to receive an award in a prestigious national competition for the second year in a row,” Tintera said.
The American Graphic Design awards spotlights areas of excellence for creative professionals. This year there were more than 8,000 entries from advertising agencies, graphic design firms, corporations, institutions and publishers. Florida Tech’s Creative Services were among the 15 percent of entries selected for awards this year.
Last winter, Creative Services received two silver ADDY awards in the Space Coast Advertising Federation’s awards competition. One award was in the category of advertising for the arts and sciences, and the other for newspaper specialty advertising inserts.
