By Victoria Burke

Old Dominion University's Office of Design and Publications received six prestigious Awards of Distinction in the 2018 Communicator Awards, a national competition that honors groundbreaking work from agencies, organizations and companies across the United States.
The following Old Dominion publications received Communicator Awards:

  • Fall 2017 Arts@ODU brochure
  • Winter 2017 issue of Monarch magazine
  • Family Calendar
  • Darden College of Education annual report
  • State of the Commonwealth report
  • Spring 2017 issue of Monarch Extra e-magazine

Old Dominion's Design and Publications Office has won 59 awards over the past 26 years, including 28 Communicator Awards.

Founded nearly two decades ago, the Communicator Awards competition receives more than 6,000 entries, making it one of the largest of its kind in the world. It is judged by the International Academy of Visual Arts, consisting of top-tier professionals from media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms. The Award of Distinction is given to projects that exceed industry standards in quality and achievement.

The publications office is ODU's in-house design office. It has a staff of four: Victoria Burke, director; Karen Smallets, assistant director; and Sharon Lomax and Shara Weber, graphic designers.

The office produces more than 200 marketing and promotional materials annually to promote the university's brand, image and mission. Designers' services are available at no charge to ODU departments and offices.
