Cougar, Transitions earn design honors

Cougar News Staff

The Daily Cougar and Student Publications rounded out their list of honors from the 1998-99 academic year, winning awards in the College Media Advisers' Best of Collegiate Design 7 national contest.

The Cougar won fifth place for the design of its Spring 1999 nameplate, the name of the newspaper as presented at the top of the front page every day.

The nameplate, which judges said gave "a fresh look to a daily publication," was designed by former Editor in Chief Jim Parsons.

Also earning an award in the competition was the table of contents page for the Summer 1999 edition of Transitions magazine, designed by Mauro Gomez and Jennifer Ruisaard.

The page earned fourth place in the magazine contents page category. Transitions is mailed to all incoming UH students each summer.

"I'm glad to see the work of last year's staff earn this recognition," Parsons said. "I hope we'll be able to build on these examples and improve the quality of our publications, both in terms of design and content."

Last year's Cougar also won national awards for advertising design and cartooning as well as third place in the Associated Collegiate Press Newspaper of the Year competition.
