GAF Wins Five Awards From Graphic Design USA Magazine

GAF, North America’s largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer, was recently awarded four American Graphic Design Awards by Graphic Design USA magazine. Open to everyone in the graphic arts community, the competition has existed for nearly 50 years and honors outstanding new work in 23 categories submitted from graphic design firms, advertising agencies, in-house corporate designers, publishers and other media. 

Competing against nearly 10,000 entries, GAF’s award-winning designs include a DuraLife™ Natural Grain Decking advertisement, a GAF University advertisement, a Timberline® Cool Series brochure, and the Masterflow® Green Machine™ Dual Powered Roof Vent packaging. 

The company also won an American Package Design Award for its impressive TruSlate™ Sample Box. There were over 1,500 submissions in this contest, which rewards packaging, p-o-p and related projects that are visually attractive and which feature designs that advance the brand and forge an emotional connection with the purchaser. 

 “Our Creative Design Services team continues to perform at the highest levels, producing materials that can compete with both internal and external ad agencies nationwide,” stated Ted Marcopolus, Vice President of Marketing Services at GAF. “We are certainly honored to win these awards, but are even more proud to be recognized for our efforts in advancing the GAF brand.”
