Hillsborough, N.J., November 1, 2011 – Leading New Jersey/New York City creative services firm JK Design has received three 2011 American Graphic Design Awards (AGDAs). The agency’s winning entries were created for clients in the public, private, and educational sectors, and were selected for recognition among more than 9,000 competitors this year.
JK Design’s interactive team earned an AGDA in the Internet Design category for designing and developing a new website for the Somerset County Business Partnership (SCBP), a consortium of public, private, and community organizations dedicated to maintaining and promoting economic prosperity and quality of life in Somerset County, NJ. The user-friendly site, www.scbp.org, has a clean, modern design and is designed to be a comprehensive resource for the Somerset County business community. Business owners and others can visit the site for current information on legislative affairs and economic development; the latest business news; a variety of educational publications; and “members-only” access to other resources.
Another JK Design project, the May 2011 issue of ourQuest magazine, won in the Newsletters and eNewsletters category. It was created for the employees of Quest Diagnostics, a leading provider of diagnostic testing, information, and services. The winning issue features a bright, bold color palette and innovative graphic design elements that are a part of the company’s new visual identity system.
The final AGDA winner, “For the Love of Horses,” was designed as a fundraising tool for the Rutgers Equine Science Center, a unit of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station dedicated to better horse care through research and education to advance the well-being and performance of horses and the equine industry. With a striking design featuring beautiful imagery, creative text treatments, and a sleek look, the 12-page piece was honored in the Brochures and Collateral category.
“Winning even one American Graphic Design Award is a great accomplishment. Winning three in one year is a remarkable achievement – and a vivid demonstration of the exceptional talent and skill of our creative team,” said Jerry Kaulius, president of JK Design. “The fact that we were recognized for three very different projects highlights our customized approach, our dedication to serving the specific needs of each client, and the high quality of our work.”
For nearly 50 years, the editors of Graphic Design USA magazine have sponsored the annual American Graphic Design Awards to honor outstanding new work in a wide range of media. JK Design’s winning projects will be published in the Graphic Design USA Awards Annual seen in print and online by over 100,000 people each year.
