Engineering creativity recognized with 5 MarCom awards

Purdue College of Engineering has been recognized by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) with five MarCom awards.

The international contest recognizes outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design and production of marketing and communication materials and programs. AMCP receives 6,000 MarCom entries per year.

The following projects were named winners:

Platinum (1st place)

Nuclear Engineering brochure Inserts

According to Shawn Dildine, communications and marketing specialist for NE: “Up until my arrival, the School of Nuclear Engineering only had an 8.5x11 sheet that described the school and poorly represented the exciting things happening. My approach to this project was to create a document that was visually appealing while providing thorough yet concise information. Additionally, the brochure and inserts were created in a way that would allow us to customize the “experience” by choosing which inserts (undergrad program, grad program, and/or faculty) go inside the brochure dependent upon the receiving audience at a certain time.”

Gold (2nd place)

Mechanical Engineering’s video about astronaut Scott Tingle; Jared Pike, communication specialist for ME.
Civil Engineering’s IMPACT magazine (spring 2018 issue); Drew Stone, marketing and communications director for CE.

Honorable Mention(3rd place)

Agricultural and Biological Engineerings alumni newsletter; Carol Weaver, alumni relations/communications coordinator for ABE.
CoE’s homepage redesign (launched in April 2018); submitted by the CoE Communication team of Christine Babick, Josh Davis, Erin Easterling, Elizabeth Gray, Will Gwin, Hilary Nelson, and Kate Theobald.
