New Look Wins Big

The Actuary receives a top APEX Award for its redesign

The Society of Actuaries (SOA) is pleased to announce that the APEX Awards for Publication Excellence recognized The Actuary in its 28th annual awards competition.

APEX Awards for Publication Excellence are given in an annual competition for publishers, editors, writers and designers who create for print, digital and social media. Entries come from communicators in business, non-profit, agency and freelance for a chance to win an award for their best writing, publications, campaigns, programs, design and media.

The Actuary received a top APEX Award for Publication Excellence in the best redesign category for design and illustration.

This recognition comes after the SOA teamed up with GLC, a marketing communications agency, to redesign its flagship publication, The Actuary. The collaboration has since expanded to include development of this responsive website, which showcases the magazine content, plus web exclusives and digital media.

Members of the SOA publications team include Jacque Kirkwood, magazine staff editor; Julia Anderson Bauer, publications manager; Erin Pierce, senior graphic designer; and Cheré LaRose, director, member and candidate communications. Members of the GLC team include Rick Cruz, senior art director; Kathleen Hagan, managing editor; Jason Grey, director of digital operations; Brittany Magee, editorial associate; Linda Klepitch, project and ad trafficking coordinator; Rene Ryan, senior director, client strategy; and Joe Stella, vice president, business development.

The SOA and GLC are honored by the recognition and delighted to share this award!
