The Promethean, the award-winning County College of Morris (CCM) student art and literary publication, has once again been selected as a winner by Graphic Design USA in its 2018 American Inhouse Design Awards contest.
The American Inhouse Design Award is the largest showcase for original work created by inhouse designers— an individual or group that creates and produces material as a part of an organization, not as a separate entity. These designers usually produce materials such as publications, invitations, self-promotional items, signage and websites.
More than 5,000 items were submitted for consideration this year, but only 750 entries were selected for recognition by the panel of judges. This award does not include a student category for judging, and, therefore, The Promethean was judged against work produced by professional designers.
Since the award was initiated in 2010, The Promethean has been selected for this category seven times.
“I am so pleased and humbled that this professional organization continues to confirm The Promethean’s excellence,” said Professor Kathy McNeil, advisor for publication. “It showcases the best that CCM has to offer, and the continued support from so many people on campus is a big part of the publication’s success.”
The 2017-18 CCM student staff was made up of graphic design students Brian Larney, of Livingston; Danielle Kerr, of Lake Hopatcong; Jack Mandrake, of Dover; Patrick Moriera, of Dover; Yanira Rodriguez, of Mount Olive; and Marshal Williams, of Mount Olive.
