Findings, the biannual magazine published by the University of Michigan SPH, has received the Grand Gold Award for Design in the 2016 Circle of Excellence competition, which is a global awards program sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
The award singled out the issue entitled “Becoming Detroit: An inside look at a city’s metamorphosis” as the recipient of the award. Released in Spring of 2015, it was the second installment of the magazine’s 30th volume. Interspersed with current SPH news and research, potent words and insightful images follow the arc of Detroit’s identity as an important US city from its settlement in 1701 to the booming advent of the automobile industry to the challenges and hopes it faces today.
The Grand Gold Awards are chosen annually from among the gold-level winners in each category to identify entries that are outstanding and/or “game-changing,” bringing to light how powerful it can be to tell a story like Detroit’s with exceptional design work.
Findings has also received other CASE awards for previous issues. Its continuing excellence is due to a highly talented team of writers, designers, and editors, along with the contributions of dedicated SPH students and faculty members.
