The American Inhouse Design Awards is the largest showcase for original work created by in-house designers. Typically, in-house design groups produce materials such as self-promotion items, publications, invitations, signage and websites.

About 5,000 entries were submitted and 15 percent of the entries were selected for recognition by the panel of judges. The Promethean was judged against work produced by professional designers, as there are no student-only categories.

This is the seventh year in a row that the Promethean has received the award.

“This is a wonderful accomplishment that demonstrates the exceptional job of our students and their faculty advisor, Professor Kathleen McNeil,” said CCM President Anthony Iacono. “I wish them the best for continued success.”
