GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has recently been honored with twelve American Inhouse Design Awards from Graphic Design USA magazine. For over 50 years Graphic Design USA has sponsored competitions to spotlight areas of excellence for creative professionals. The American Inhouse Design Awards is considered to be the premier showcase for outstanding work by in-house designers.
The GAF team won awards for work on categories including Advertising, Announcements and Invitations, Brochures Collateral, Corporate Identity Programs, Multimedia Interactive, Packaging, and Logos Symbols. The competition included almost 10,000 entries from corporations, publishing houses, non-profits, universities, and government agencies, and only 15 percent were recognized with a Certificate of Excellence.
“It is an honor to be awarded recognition from such a prestigious competition in not just one, but a variety of categories across the marketing spectrum,” stated Ted Marcopolus, vice president of marketing services at GAF. “I am proud that our Creative Design Services team continues to meet the challenges of new media, remaining focused on creating innovative and exceptional concepts to advance the GAF brand in support of our valued customers.”
Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple. GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles, which then evolved with the introduction of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System by extending the Lifetime coverage beyond just the roofing shingles.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF has developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, which provides excellent durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of scarce natural resources. The company has also developed single-ply and asphaltic membranes with excellent durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.
GAF also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 125,000 professionals. CARE’s mission is to help professional contractors and distributors build their businesses through sales and management education, and to provide product and installation training to contractors, distributors, architects, property owners, and related industry personnel.
