PNCA and Incubate win Merit Award from How Magazine
August 20, 2009
Pacific Northwest College of Art’s collaboration with Portland-based design studio Incubate on the redesign of its BFA recruitment materials has earned a Merit award in HOW magazine’s 2009 Promotion Design Awards.
The dual entry features a viewbook, expanded materials and envelope that together highlight PNCA’s vibrant culture, featuring work by PNCA students and alumni including illustrations and photography. The set also shows the College’s commitment to sustainability—it was printed with all soy-based inks and 100% recycled FSC-certified paper.
The College submitted its BFA recruitment materials along with “Incubate”:www.incubatedesign.com, an award-winning design studio led by Brian Acevedo, PNCA Faculty and Dylan Nelson.
“HOW”:http://www.howdesign.com/ is an influential graphic design magazine that “provides a practical mix of essential business information, up-to-date technological tips, the creative whys and hows behind noteworthy projects, and profiles of professionals who are influencing design,” according to its Web site.
