ADRIAN, Mich – The Public Relations team at Adrian College received a nod for its design and innovation in the 2012-2013 FPO Awards. The competition gave top honors to the Adrian College Admission Holiday card in the foil stamp category. The contest received 275 submissions.
The card, designed by Joshua Morey with copy editing by Jennifer Compton of the Adrian College Public Relations team, was printed by Metzgers of Toledo and Behrmann Printing Co., Inc. out of Southfield. Designed for use by the Adrian College Office of Admissions, the foldout, foil stamped holiday greeting placed a new spin on the renowned holiday tale, The Night Before Christmas. The card was sent to prospective students and friends of the College.
According to its website, the FPO Awards is a judged competition that celebrates the best print work from around the world during 2012 – 2013 — a direct extension of the popular blog FPO: For Print Only. Organized by UnderConsideration, it was designed as a response to other award formulas, past and present, and strives to provide a competition that places as much importance on design and execution as it does toward production. Judges are designers and printers, with winners given the opportunity to display their work and a detailed account of all the production.
