UI College of Public Health publications earn design awards

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Two University of Iowa College of Public Health publications recently earned awards from the University & College Designers Association (UCDA) for excellence in design.

UCDA, a professional organization committed to promoting excellence in visual communications for educational institutions, selected two UI College of Public Health publications to appear in its 31st Annual Design Competition. The winning publications, chosen from among more than 1,500 print and electronic media entries, were honored at the UCDA's annual conference held Sept. 22-25 in Victoria, British Columbia.

The premier issue of the college's biannual newsletter, "wellspring," received an Award of Excellence in the category "Newsletters: Single Issue." Designed by Patti O’Neill and Julie Longo Streitz, the newsletter was edited by Daniel McMillan and Debra Venzke, with original photography provided by Wayne Johnson.

"Workplace Violence: A Report to the Nation," a publication produced by the college's Injury Prevention Research Center, also received an Award of Excellence in the category "Publications: Research Publication." The report, edited by Leslie Loveless, was designed by Patti O’Neill and featured illustrations by Luba Lukova.

Earlier this year, the college's 1999-2000 annual report, "A Year of Growth," earned an Award of Excellence in the Stora Enso printed media competition. The annual report was designed by Benson & Hepker Design of Iowa City.
