University publications are voted best in the country

Insider, the University staff magazine and The Gift of a Lifetime, the new legacy booklet, have both scooped top prizes at the national design and print awards.

The new look Insider, winner of the best design category, was launched last year by Sue Fairhurst, Graphic Designer; Claire Hornshaw, Press & Publications Officer; and Nic Delves-Broughton, Photographer from the Department of Marketing & Communications. It is a clean, contemporary design which aims to appeal to the cross-section of staff at the University.

The Gift of a Lifetime, a new booklet aimed at those considering leaving a legacy to the University, won the in-house design on a recycled paper award (sponsored by the Waste & Resources Action Programme). It was designed by Sue Fairhurst and written by Rob Grimes, Development Officer.

The winning publications were revealed at the annual University Print Managers Conference, which celebrates excellence in design and printing at universities and colleges in the UK. The group has 80 institutions as members who were all eligible to enter. The winners were judged on a series of criteria, including: consideration of target audience, overall impression and photography.

The prizes were collected by Louise Paton, Head of Imaging, Design & Print Services and Andy Tigwell, Print Unit Supervisor.
