Company focuses on producing compelling materials for customers
July 12, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Graphic Design USA recently recognized Capital BlueCross with a 2013 American Inhouse Design Award for outstanding creative work on its 2011 annual report. According to Graphic Design USA, this honor is the premier showcase nationally for in-house designers. Only 15 percent of the 4,000 entries received this award.
Capital BlueCross’ Creative & Design department produces nearly 10,000 jobs a year, including many collateral and communication pieces for its customers, and community and business partners.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious national award,” said Rebecca Stevenson, vice president of Enterprise Communications. “Our Creative & Design professionals continue to amaze with their artistic ability and special flair for setting a high standard throughout the industry for quality work on behalf of everyone we serve.”
In its communications, Graphic Design USA says: “Much of today’s best graphic design is done by in-house designers, but their role is too often undervalued. This competition’s mission is to make sure in-house designers are recognized by their colleagues and the creative community.”
The American Inhouse Design Award follows on the heels of the company receiving two international Hermes Creative Gold Awards that recognize creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. Capital BlueCross received the two Hermes awards for its 2011 annual report, along with its in-kind work on a brochure for a charitable organization.
