An innovative collaboration among the student staff at Reporter magazine and the staffs at the Printing Applications Laboratory and the HUB has led to international accolades.
Reporter’s “Me” issue, which hit newsstands around campus in May, recently won the Printing Innovation with Xerox Imaging (PIXI) Award. The issue, showcasing portraits of RIT students, faculty and staff on the front and back covers, as well as the feature article, earned third place in the Books and Manuals category.
Ten-thousand magazines were printed and no two copies were alike. This was accomplished by using a printing process called variable data printing.
A panel of international leaders from the graphic arts industry served as award judges. Criteria were based on business effectiveness, use of digital technology, degree of innovation and overall aesthetics.
