Blue Star wins seven 2013 American Graphic Design Awards

Blue Star Design is honored to be recognized as a 2013 American Graphic Design Award winner by Graphic Design USA for excellence in the categories of Brochures and Collateral; Announcements, Invitations, Cards; Annual Reports; Internet Design; and Logos, Trademarks and Symbols. Our seven winning pieces are among a highly selective 15 percent, chosen from more than 8,000 entries.

We’re thrilled to share this achievement with our talented team, partners and clients, who inspire us everyday to continue to set the design bar high, allowing for award-winning creativity and collaboration to shine through.

Here are the winning pieces:

Nip It – Business Card
At Blue Star, we know small business, so when Nip It came to us needing a business card, we wanted to give them a memorable design that would be able to grow with them.

Blue Star Design – Holiday card “Sending you a little holiday cheer”

Every December, Blue Star clients, friends and family receive a fun holiday greeting from our team. In 2012, a tiny card was sent with a lot of love, spreading the perfect amount of holiday cheer to all.

For Dwellworks, team is central to success. So, we worked with them to bring their team front and center on, where clients are encouraged to interact with Dwellworks' employees and learn more about their culture. Special thanks to our partners Blackbird Interactive and Yasaki Photographic for their contributions to this project.

Dwellworks – Annual Report
Continuing to emphasize the Dwellworks team, for the annual report we highlight connections and relationships, emphasizing their motto “Discover the Power of Team.”

In rebranding Van Cleef Asset Management we wanted to help distinguish them from other asset management companies, letting their personality and values come forward. A new website and business collateral are on their way, showcasing their compelling brand.

Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland – Familia Invitation
The Familia Fashion Show is Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland’s second largest fundraiser each year, and Blue Star has designed the annual event collateral since 2000. This year’s show is coming soon, October 19, 2013 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven.

OnX Enterprise Solutions – OnX Index Cards and Folder
Working closely with OnX on brand, marketing and advertising for more than three years, Blue Star developed a unique piece to showcase the services and solutions OnX provides to their customers.
