Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 23, 2011 ─ Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading provider of innovative IT solutions, today announced it has won a Merit Award in the HOW magazine-sponsored international In-HOWse Design Awards (February 2011 issue). This premiere award is intended to spotlight in-house design teams, an under-represented segment of the design industry. Agilysys was chosen from among 89 winning designs in the Business-to-Business Merit category for its graphic design for the 2010 Houston World Championship BBQ Kickoff Contest, an event associated with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
HOW magazine is a national design publication that recognizes the best in in-house design, including business-to-business and consumer work. According to HOW creators, the objective of the Agilysys project was to: “bolster this hardware and software reseller's image among the Houston business community.” The design portrayed a “Well Seasoned” theme highlighting Agilysys as a long-standing solutions integrator with “seasoned” technology experience. The graphics were part of an integrated campaign that included T-shirts, event banners and a presentation for attendees.
The Agilysys in-house design team responsible for the project is Gerard McGowan, marketing director, Anita O'Malley, Ron McBride and June Zeringue. In addition, they have received numerous other awards for marketing and design creativity, including multiple Jasper Awards from the Jersey Shore Public Relations and Advertising Association, The Communicator Award, The Davy Award and The Hermes Award.
