Dave Yakley, director of design at Malone University, was recently notified that the University had been acknowledged with two Awards of Excellence by the University and College Designers Association (UCDA). The national competition received 1100 entries, with only 188 awards given – two of those going to Malone University.
The winning entries included works commissioned for The Malone Magazine: a photograph by Todd Biss Photography, and an illustration by Barry Fitzgerald, professor at the University of Kansas. Yakley provided artistic direction for the project, along with Amber Balash, content manager for publications and the University’s website.
Both entries will be on display at the annual UCDA Design Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, in October.
