Design Perspective has Two Reasons to ROAR!

Design Perspective GDUSA award

With the new year flying by, we almost forgot to beat our chests and let you know that San Diego Zoo Global’s centennial history book set, The San Diego Zoo • The First Century won awards…twice!

First, our 2016 American Graphic Design Award entry was printed in GDUSA’s 53rd Design Annual. It is an honor to be among the 15 percent chosen from over 10,000 entries submitted. Click here to view the winning entry.

The second award is a 2016 Gold Ink Awards, Pewter Award, Fine Book Category, sponsored by Printing Impressions Magazine from over 1000 entries within 50 categories. It was a pleasure to work with RR Donnelley’s excellent print team.

Over two years, we had the privilege of designing 400 pages of entertaining and sometimes surprising facts and stories, highlighted with 500+ photos, from our zoo’s one hundred year history. Written by Lynda Rutledge Stephenson, including information from over one hundred interviews and many archival materials, this keepsake book set will bring a smile to history buffs and fellow San Diegans.

This rich history shows how the past one hundred years has positioned “our zoo” for leading the future in conservation of endangered species while educating new generations of visitors on the interconnectivity of our world.

For those interested in purchasing, The San Diego Zoo • The First Century, there may still be sets available through shopsandiegozoo.com, or at the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park stores.
