Corey McPherson Nash Wins 2011 CASE Achievement Award

Leading Branding Firm Earns Prestigious Honor for New Cushing Academy Recruitment Materials

WATERTOWN, MA (January 20, 2011) - Corey McPherson Nash (Corey), a leading national branding and design firm based in Watertown, Massachusetts, is pleased to announce it is the recipient of Honorable Mention in the 2011 CASE District I Communication Awards, recognizing the work it completed for Cushing Academy’s academic year viewbook and recruitment materials. This award marks another CASE win for Corey, who has previously taken home CASE awards for work with Buckingham Browne & Nichols and Middlesex School.

Cushing was the only secondary school to earn this accolade. The CASE District I Communication Awards recognize outstanding achievement in higher education, independent school, and non-profit organization communications. All submitted pieces are judged on overall design, content and writing, and the use of photography, graphics, and technology.

Corey submitted the Cushing recruitment materials in the Admissions Viewbooks category this past fall. The Cushing Academy viewbook expresses the brand position of Cushing as a school deeply committed to preparing students for the unprecedented challenges in the 21st century. The theme “Learning at the Leading Edge” is a promise that Cushing will be a place where the curriculum is responsive to a world that is changing rapidly due to globalization, technology, and environmental stress. A bold and dynamic visual dialogue sets the stage for participating in this energizing conversation.

The Corey McPherson Nash project team was headed by Michael McPherson, Creative Director, and Angelina Lazuk, Designer.  “Cushing has a great story to tell about how it is at the forefront of education and we were privileged to help showcase how extraordinary the school is," said McPherson.
