UCOP’s Marketing Communications team wins multiple national design awards

Digital design work for the Zero Waste campaign.


UCOP’s Marketing Communications team continues to bring home national awards, this time from the University and College Designers Association (UCDA). For 2017, the judges of the annual UCDA Design Competition evaluated 1,269 print and digital entries, and handed out a total of 204 awards: 6 Gold Awards, 11 Silver Awards and 187 Awards of Excellence. UCOP’s Silver Awards listed below were the top prizes in their categories.

“It’s wonderful to see work done by the Marketing Communications team, in collaboration with our colleagues around OP, being recognized by our peers,” said Vanessa Correa, the creative director of Marketing Communications.

Each of UC’s submissions included multiple pieces of design work — either print, digital, video or a combination of media. Take a look at examples of the team’s award-winning design work in each category, along with the names of those who created it. (Click on images to view larger versions.)
