Cushman Creative took gold for the redesign of MDIBL’s semi-annual donor magazine, recently retitled “Breaking Through.” The name and new design were inspired by an MDIBL Annual Report created by Cushman Creative, which won numerous awards and inclusion in the 2017 Graphis Design Annual.

“The concept behind ‘Breaking Through’ is that research does not have a beginning and an end,” says Karan Cushman, CEO, Cushman Creative. “Instead, it is the result of breaking through one barrier at a time to realize the possibility of the next medical advance. The original Case Statement highlighted the patients, scientists and donors who raise awareness and enable research every day. MDIBLs donor magazine regularly updates supporters on the institution’s progress and encourages more engagement.”

Jerilyn Bowers, Director of Development at Public Affairs at the MDI Biological Laboratory, says, “As a Cushman Creative partner for seven years, we are delighted, but not surprised, that Cushman Creative has won a gold award in the prestigious MarCom competition for our magazine. We are continually impressed by the firm’s ability to design visually arresting images that build awareness of our accomplishments, strengthen stakeholder relationships, and inspire the support that is so critical to our future.”

MarComAwards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media, and is judged by The Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. Other top 2017 winners include IBM Watson, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, United Way Worldwide and Eli Lilly and Company.
