Cognella® Textbook Covers Receive Accolades from GDUSA

Five Cognella textbook covers receive GDUSA Inhouse Design Awards

San Diego, CA – June 5th, 2017 – For the third consecutive year, Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) has awarded Cognella® textbook covers with American Inhouse Design Awards. This year, five covers were recognized by GDUSA, the highest number of accolades Cognella has received from the prestigious design organization since the academic publisher began submitting cover designs for consideration in 2015.

For more than 50 years, GDUSA has sponsored exhibitions that feature and recognize the creativity, ingenuity, and skill of premier graphic designers. In particular, the GDUSA American Inhouse Design Awards seek to spotlight the incredible work of in-house graphic designers and departments in companies, organizations, and institutions across the nation. While GDUSA receives thousands of submissions for the awards each year, only about 15% are awarded with commendations of excellence.

The five award-winning Cognella book covers, created by graphic designers Jess Estrella and Miguel Macias, reflect the quality, ingenuity, and passion Cognella strives to deliver to our academic partners each and every day.
