The Society of Publication Designers picked a cover story with unique typography and a feature story that illustrated hedge fund bloopers using a clever photograph of a much maligned fruit.
AR Magazine has received two Merit awards from the Society of Publication Designers for excellence in cover and individual story art.
AR art director Nathan Sinclair orchestrated the two winning submissions, the April 2010 “Rich List” cover, featured an innovative typeset design by artist Tom Brown, and striking thematic photographs by Fredrik Broden for “The Dumbest Ideas of the Hedge Fund Boom,” a September 2010 feature story. SPD considered more than 6,000 submissions for the 46th annual competition, according to a release.
The awards add to several Sinclair and his team have recently won. AR won two Azbees from the American Society of Business Publication Editors, including the National Silver Award for Overall Photography/Illustrations the Regional Bronze Award for Computer-Generated Cover Design for AR’s December 2009 cover, “The Goldman Brand Demystified.”
The same “Rich List” cover illustration was also chosen to be included in the 2010 Communication Arts Typography annual. And an illustration of George Soros by Jack Unruh that accompanied a related cover story was selected for the New York Society of Illustrators annual exhibit in 2011.
