Print and Design Solutions receive two prestigious awards

The Association of Creative Print Managers in Education (ACPME) held their annual awards earlier this month and our very own Print and Design Solutions were there to collect not one, but two awards.

They were recognised in the Best in-house Design and Service of the Year categories. We want to congratulate all teams involved.

ACPME 1Winner in the category of Service of the Year

About this category the judges said:

“The entries into this category all had an interesting story to tell: how entrants were dealing with significant changes in structure – across both personnel and facilities; how they were aiming to respond to the requirements of their institution and students, and how they were developing their services.”

“In determining the winner we looked at all the stories. Ultimately our decision was based on diversification – beyond the boundaries – and although there was evidence of this in all cases, we selected the University of Sheffield for it’s broad communications offering.

"The UoS has made impressive strides into digital including web, digital advertising, animation-deck services and full video production.”

ACPMEHighly Commended in the category of Best in-house Design

About this category the judges said:

“The overwhelming quality of submissions into this category made the judging extraordinarily difficult. It was also a most pleasurable experience to view work of such a high-standard. We were most impressed with the quality of layout, typography and visual elements– with cogent considerations of format, substrates and special"

“The University of Sheffield’s “Inform” magazine was an example of excellence in design consideration and execution, yielding an elegant and aesthetically stimulating publication that could easily keep company with luxury titles in any design studio.”

Janine Barraclough, Head of Business Support Services in CiCS praised teams in Print and Design Solutions:

"I am absolutely thrilled that the team skillfully attained the 'Service of the Year' award, it is the one award that all the ACPME member institiutions want to win.

"Their winning case study and video demonstrates how their diversification into Digital Design compliments their service portfolio and meets the changing needs of the university; the team also received a highly commended award for 'Best Graphic Design'. It was very much a team effort and well deserved."
