NEW YORK -- Convenience Store News has struck gold again! This month, the convenience store industry’s most-decorated media brand added two more awards to its long list of achievements.
First, Ana Rodrigues, CSNews’ art director, won a Silver Award in the 2008 Create Awards competition for its "DaVinci Code" cover (July 2007 issue). Entries spanned the globe and the competition was judged by 20 leading professionals from eight creative industries. Only 361 awards were chosen out of more than 1,500 entries.
CSNews and Rodrigues also won a 2008 American Graphic Design Award for Best Cover Design. This award was for the Feb. 4, 2008 cover entitled, "Get Green." The recognition comes from American Graphic Design USA Magazine.
With these recognitions, the number of design awards won by Rodrigues over the past year total six. The others were:
-- 2008 Bronze Art Directors Club of New Jersey
