EAA’s Sport Aviation Wows National Judges, Wins Best Redesign Award from Media Industry News
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (Nov. 16, 2010) —Sport Aviation magazine, EAA’s flagship monthly publication for members, continues to receive accolades on the heels of its January 2010 launch. The latest honor came this month as the publication received the Best Redesign Award from Media Industry News (min) at the 2010 Editorial & Design Awards held in New York City.
The min Awards highlight the best work in the publishing industry, with other awards going to popular consumer magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Harper’s Bazaar, Real Simple, and Computer World. Post-award comments noted Sport Aviation “propelled the brand into its next stage” and “demonstrated why the magazine is one of the principal benefits of membership in EAA.”
“We’re very proud of the new look and upgraded content of Sport Aviation, and EAA members have overwhelmingly supported the redesign as well,” said Rod Hightower, EAA president/CEO. “Our members helped set the course for the magazine with their input and comments, and they can also be proud that it is now on style and production levels with the nation’s top consumer magazines.”
Debbie Bates-Schrott, president of Bates Creative Group which executed the redesign for EAA, accepted the award on behalf of EAA and her agency.
Earlier this year, Sport Aviation received three EXCEL awards for its redesign from Association & Media Publishing magazine, including Gold Awards for overall redesign and design excellence.
