Neenah Paper Wins Best of Show
Neenah Paper received the Best of Show Award at the 24th Annual International ARC Awards, held in New York and the world's largest annual report competition, for its 2009 annual report titled "What We Believe."
The winners were deemed the best out of over nineteen hundred entries from 27 countries. Criteria used to choose winners included cover design, chairman's letter, writing, interior design, financial presentation, and overall, how well the spirit of the company is reflected in the annual report. The judges noted that it was an excellent annual report, superbly written and artistically designed.
Designed by Addison of New York City, the book communicates core values and corporate strength in spite of the severe economic downturn. The annual report garnered near perfect scores throughout the preliminary judging rounds, winning the Grand Award for Non-Traditional Annual Reports/International, then went on to take Best of Show.
"This annual report clearly shows that a well-articulated message communicated through a mixture of striking imagery and strong typography, then printed on a rich selection of papers, does indeed capture and captivate the viewer," said Tom Wright, director of advertising and design.
The black hardcover book made of material from Neenah's Technical Products Division belies the beautiful use of vibrant color inside. The unique illustrations and photographic images are reproduced on a variety of Neenah's fine Text and Cover papers. Each page clearly demonstrates just how much the paper selection contributes to the impact of any printed piece.
