NJ Designs, Wins National Graphic Design Award for the WCMS Communicator

Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) has awarded NJ Designs’ founder and creative director Natalie Ede with an award for her outstanding design work on the Washoe County Medical Society’s bi-monthly publication the WCMS Communicator and will be featuring her award-winning design in their latest publication GDUSA.

“I am honored to receive such high praise for my work,” said Natalie. “My goal as a designer is and has always been to make sure my clients are happy. To also receive national recognition for my work for the fourth time in my career is truly icing on the cake.”

“We have a much more engaging newsletter with this new design,” said Mary Ann, WCMS executive director. “This national recognition is a great testimony to Natalie’s talent.”

This year there were over 1,000 entries; a highly selective 15 percent were selected for recognition.
