Paradigm Designers Earn 2015 American Inhouse Design Awards

ST. PAUL, Minn. (May 14, 2015) – Paradigm Education Solutions recently announced that two of its senior design and production specialists won 2015 American Inhouse Design Awards from Graphic Design USA (GDUSA). Valerie King won for her cover designs of Paradigm’s Marquee Series Microsoft© Office 2016 textbooks. Jaana Bykonich was also awarded for her design of Pharmacology Essentials for Allied Health. This is the third year King and Bykonich have received these esteemed awards. GDUSA hosts several design contests each year.

The American Inhouse Design Awards are renowned as the original and biggest competition for recognizing the outstanding work of in-house designers who offer their businesses tremendous value and talent. Each year, GDUSA receives thousands of entries from across the country and only a highly select percentage of submissions are recognized with Certificates of Excellence.

Timothy Larson, director of Paradigm production, said, “Jaana and Valerie's designs continue to impress—me, their colleagues and, clearly, the industry. This year marks the third year that GDUSA has recognized their talent, creativity and excellence. This year's awards are well earned and well deserved. Jaana and Valerie are truly remarkable talents. I'm looking forward to what I know will be their next award-winning designs.”
