Kent State’s Office of Global Education Wins Regional Printing Award

Kent State University’s Office of Global Education recently won high honors from the Printing Industries of Ohio and Northern Kentucky, receiving a Gold Award for Best of Category in the pocket folder category.

Michael Taylor, marketing and communications specialist for the Office of Global Education, designed a cross-functional folder for the office.

“I’ve been with the Office of Global Education for about a year now,” Taylor says. “One of the first tasks I was given when I came on board was to create a multipurpose pocket folder for the office to use for various presentations.”

The award was submitted by Oliver Printing, the company that printed the piece.

Taylor says he is proud of the accomplishment and honored his work is receiving regional recognition.

“It’s an indication that you’re doing things right, and it’s respected by other people, especially people within the industry,” Taylor says. “Within the printing industry and within the design industry, people see the work and think it’s well put together. It feels really great, but it also emphasizes you’re doing well in your chosen field.”

For Taylor, receiving this award is more than a personal accomplishment.

“It’s a nice recognition for the Office of Global Education, too,” Taylor says. “It lets the university community know we’re doing good things over here.”
