Press Release Body: LEANDER, Texas, May 16, 2008—Graphic Design USA, a national magazine for design professionals, has honored Destination Graphix with an American Inhouse Design Award for outstanding publication design of the 2007-2008 Greater Leander Chamber of Commerce Community Profile and Membership Directory. The award-winning publication will be featured in Graphic Design USA’s 250-page Inhouse Awards Annual this coming summer.

Graphic Design USA is one of the leading monthly news and information magazines for and about the professional design community, including graphic design firms, corporate and publishing inhouse departments, advertising agencies, institutions and non-profits, and other creative businesses and organizations. Established in 1963, Graphic Design USA has been sponsoring design competitions for four decades.

About this year’s competition, Graphic Design USA publisher Gordon Kaye says “There were a remarkable 5,000 plus entries in this year’s program from all over the country. Destination Graphix is one of the top 10 percent to be awarded with a Certificate of Excellence.”

Upon hearing news of the award, president of the Greater Leander Chamber Mary Bradshaw said, “I knew it was a winner when Gabrielle pitched the concept of a one-of-a-kind coffee-table-style magazine. Destination Graphix never disappoints us with the creativity or quality of their work.”

“This award means a lot and I am honored to be selected as a winner by the editors of Graphic Design USA,” says publisher Gabrielle Melisende. “This directory,” she continues, “is an excellent example of Destination Graphix’ capabilities in design, marketing and publishing.”

In addition to the design award, Melisende’s marketing campaign for the directory earned Destination Graphix international recognition when it was selected as a Finalist for Marketing Campaign of the Year in the 2007 Stevie Awards™ for Women in Business. The Stevies, according to the New York Post, are “the business world’s own Oscar Awards.”
