Research Horizons magazine has won a gold award for magazine publishing improvement in the Circle of Excellence award competition sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The award recognizes the recent redesign of the magazine, which included a new cover, a new section of short news items, and a focus on improved photography and illustration.
“The design models innovation and research,” CASE judges wrote of the magazine. “The new issues feature a very contemporary, clean design with appealing white space, photos, and type, and good use of font variety and better paper. The shorter stories are so much easier to read and easier to get into for readers who skim, and the mix of long and short stories is interesting.” There were 36 entries in the award category. —JOHN TOON
