The Society of Publication Designers have announced the contenders for their medal categories. Although UPPERCASE magazine isn't in those top few, the saying "It is an honour to be nominated" certainly holds true. I'm certainly not disappointed; I'm elated that the magazine was in their top 16 for magazine of the year. It was like getting an Oscar nomination for directing an indie film and being up against Spielberg and Scorsese!
I'm proud of the first three issues of UPPERCASE, which is what the judges were evaluating, but I feel that it is with our current issue #4 that I've found my stride with the typography and page design, but more significantly with the management and organization of its content. So it is only going to get better!
Thanks for all your kind comments and congratulations this week. Have a great weekend, everyone.
