PCG receives 11 Graphic Design USA Awards, Gold Ink recognition
When we learned last year that we were honored with eight 2010 American Graphic Design Awards from Graphic Design USA, we were thrilled. This year’s recognition has left us positively flattered. We recently received notice that Graphic Design USA has bestowed our team with 11 awards in its 2011 contest for our client work, which covers a variety of industry sectors including printable plastics, automotive, beverages, millwork and construction.
The American Graphic Design Awards, the flagship competition of Graphic Design USA magazine for nearly five decades, recognize outstanding graphic design and advertising work. The contest is open to the entire graphic arts community, including graphic design firms, advertising agencies, in-house corporate and institutional designers, publishers and other media. The judges reviewed more than 8,000 entries this year, selecting an exclusive 15 percent for awards.
The following 11 Premier Communications Group projects were named winners:
General Motors Chevrolet Volt Launch Kit USB Interface
General Motors 2011 Sierra/Silverado HD Pickups USB Interface
General Motors Buick Communications Stationery Package
Transilwrap Company Azuna® 3D Mailer

Of course, our goal always is to provide top-notch products and services. But we’re humbled whenever we — or our clients — are recognized for projects that have passed through the PCG creative halls in various capacities. In the case of the latter, one of our clients, Transilwrap (a leading supplier of printable plastics), recently won three awards at the 24th annual Gold Ink Awards, a competition co-sponsored by Publishing Executive, Book Business and Printing Impressions magazines. The honors included a Gold Award for the Transilwrap Azuna® 3D Display Package, and a Pewter Award for its Azuna® 3D mailer. PCG directed the concepts, design and production of both the mailer and the Azuna® 3D Display Package projects.
This year’s Gold Ink Award winners were chosen from nearly 1,200 entries submitted within 46 different categories. Winning pieces were judged on print quality, technical difficulty and overall visual effect. A panel of esteemed graphic arts professionals judged entries over the course of three days.
