GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, recently won eleven American Inhouse Design Awards given by Graphic Design USA magazine. The contest is considered to be the premier showcase for outstanding work by in-house graphic designers and offers a unique opportunity for these professionals to be recognized for their creativity and their contributions to their businesses and institutions.
In 2012, for the fifth straight year, there were over 4,000 entries from a broad variety of companies, including Fortune 500s, federal government agencies, and non-profits. A very select 15 percent were declared winners. GAF collected awards across a variety of categories, including Sales Promotion/Sales Kits, Advertising, Posters, Packaging, and Brochures & Collateral.
“I’m very proud that our Creative Design Services team continues to flourish, developing creative and innovative concepts and promotional materials that help to advance the GAF brand,” stated Ted Marcopolus, Vice President of Marketing Services at GAF.
