Washington State Department of Printing Wins Design Award
The Washington State Department of Printing (PRT) has received two American In-house Design Awards from Graphic Design USA, a national magazine for design professionals. PRT’s Graphic Design Manager, Starlit Bear, designed the winning pieces: a 2006 Executive Summary and a 2005 Fiscal Report.
Bear created the award-winning Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation 2006 Executive Summary for Greg Griffith, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer. The six-page tri-fold layout effectively showcased several success stories of historic preservation in Washington.
The second award was for the 2005 Fiscal Report for the Department of Ecology’s Model Toxics Control Account. Trish Akana, Program Manager, was seeking to create a report that provided a visual walk-through of the historical impact of toxins on the state.
“I credit the success of the project to Starlit Bear, who shaped the document design and promoted the use of environmentally preferable products,” says Akana.
