August 10, 2009

Graduates of the Corcoran College of Art + Design and current staff members Maria Habib (BFA 2002) and Jason Zimmerman (BFA 2003) were recently honored for their design contributions towards various institutional projects. Last spring, the 2008 Graphic Design USA American In-house Design Awards competition presented the Corcoran with four awards of excellence for the exhibition invitations, microsite, and exhibition graphics for Modernism: Designing a New World 1914–1939, as well as the Corcoran’s monthly publication, Night & Day. A particular honor for the office was the most recent acknowledgement from the Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington, which bestowed the office with three awards of excellence for the Modernism exhibition invitations, print collateral, and exhibition graphics. Congratulations to these alumni and the many other individuals who contributed to the project, including John deWolf, Catherine Armour, Philip Brookman, Sarah Newman, Sara Beth Walsh, and Sarah Durkee.
