GAF Wins Nine Awards From Graphic Design USA Magazine

GAF, North America’s largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer, was recently awarded nine American In-house Design Awards by Graphic Design USA magazine – the most awards won by any in-house agency in the last four years. The awards showcase outstanding work by in-house designers and winners were selected from more than 4,000 entries submitted nationwide. 

The award-winning designs reflect the broad array of product lines in the company’s portfolio, including decking, commercial roofing, residential roofing, and corporate pieces. Specifically, the winning materials were the DuraLife™ Decking Systems brochure, DuraLife™ Decking Systems display, and DuraLife™ Siesta advertisement; TOPCOAT® brochure and EverGuard® TPO Colors advertisement; Timberline® ad series and Timberline® Cool Series advertisement; GAF corporate branding brochure, and Habitat for Humanity partnership brochure. 

 “While we are certainly always pleased to be recognized for our work, to win nine awards in such a prestigious competition is truly an honor,” stated Ted Marcopolus, Vice President of Marketing Services at GAF. “Our Creative Design Services team continues to focus on advancing the GAF brand through the production of top quality marketing materials that help our customers sell more effectively.”
