Lux Art Institute Newsletters Win National Design Award from Print

September 6, 2011 – Brand agency MiresBall was recognized for its design work for Lux Art Institute in Print magazine’s 2011 Regional Design Annual.

Print selected four issues of the quarterly newsletter series designed for the museum as among the best in the Far West region. The 11 state area includes Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

“Working with clients and partners nationwide, we see firsthand the great design work coming from all around the country,” said John Ball, Partner and Creative Director at MiresBall, “but we are proud to represent San Diego.”

For more than a decade, MiresBall has worked with Lux Art Institute to build an identity for the organization that is translated across a variety of materials, including brochures, quarterly newsletters, a website, a documentary-style film and event invitations.

The quarterly newsletters also recently received a first place prize in the annual design competition of the American Association of Museums.

“We are gratified to continually produce nationally recognized work for Lux,” continued Ball, also a founding board member of Lux Art Institute, “but we are most proud that this twelve-year partnership has helped make a difference locally in San Diego.”

All winning entries in the 2011 Regional Design Annual will be featured in the December 2011 issue of Print.
