ARLINGTON, Va. / May 7, 2014 – NAA’s Gillian Ginter, Manager of Design and Production, earned three American Inhouse Design Awards from Graphic Design USA, a news magazine for graphic designers and other creative professionals.

Ginter received a Certificate of Excellence for her design work on Business Benefits at NAA—a membership marketing booklet; the NAA 360° logo—representing NAA’s new year-round sponsorship program; and What Drives You? NAA Capitol Conference—a direct mail postcard to boost registration for the 2014 NAA Capitol Conference that Ginter designed with the help of NAA’s Manager of New Media Michelle Sherman. 

“Our in-house design provides an outstanding representation of NAA’s products and services,” said NAA President & CEO Doug Culkin, CAE. “I’m pleased that Gillian Ginter and the rest of the creative team at NAA are receiving the recognition they deserve from such a highly regarded publication.” 

For more than five decades, Graphic Design USA has sponsored competitions that spotlight areas of excellence and opportunity. The American Inhouse Design Awards is the original—and biggest—showcase for outstanding work by in-house designers, recognizing designers for their talent, for the special challenges they face and, perhaps most important, for the value they bring to their businesses and institutions. For the 9th straight year, more than 4,000 entries were submitted; a highly selective 15 percent were recognized with a Certificate of Excellence.
