College wins design award for “This is How We Care”

The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences was honored by the University & College Designers Association for its video brochure, “This is How We Care,” in the UCDA 2019 Design Competition.

The brochure incorporated a slim video screen that plays the college “sizzle reel” and an informational video about the college’s goals, along with an overview of a century of veterinary leadership and plans for the future.

This year, the judges evaluated 1,061 print and digital entries, and awarded six Gold Awards, 11 Silver Awards and 215 Awards of Excellence.

A story in CSU’s State Magazine featuring Dr. Tim Holt, “Heart Doc at High Altitude,” was also honored in the magazine category.
