The winning projects were produced by staff members in Marketing and Communications, which is directed by Associate Vice Chancellor Bill Smith.

The Publications and Creative Services (PCS) team includes Mark Reeves, director, Heath Kelly, assistant director, and Mary Melton, associate director, and Calli Perkins, graphic designer.

"The group of professionals we have at Arkansas State have continued to earn top awards year after year, but these honors are particularly special because they are judged by our peers within the higher education field," Smith stated. "The honors reflect the overall commitment from every area of our office.  It’s a privilege to serve with such dedicated and talented professionals."

Arkansas State won the gold award in the publication design series category, in recognition of projects produced for A-State Admissions.

One bronze award was in the viewbook design category for A-State's admissions viewbook, "We Will Take You There."  The viewbook is the primary recruitment publication for distribution to prospective students.

The second bronze award was in the category of "design improvement" for the team's work on the viewbook.

CASE is an international association of professionals who work for advancement of educational institutions.
