Recognition for my work
Best State Society Magazine
Winner of National Society of Professional Surveyors journalism competition.
I have the pleasure of designing and editing The Cornerpost, a magazine put out by the Vermont Society of Land Surveyors. The magazine was named Best State Society Magazine in 2019 by the National Society of Professional Surveyors during its annual journalism competition. The competition judges magazines from associations around the nation.
THE CHALLENGE: Before I started designing The Cornerpost, it was a two-color journal with lots of text but very few visuals. The result was a dry, outdated publication that struggled to keep readers' attention.
Before the redesign, The Cornerpost was a text-heavy, two-color journal.
THE SOLUTION: I updated the magazine to a glossy, full-color format with plenty of photos and articles of interest to land surveyors, contributed by a network of talented writers.
