Magawards unveils 40th anniversary logo

The National Magazine Awards Foundation has unveiled a new logo that will grace all of the creative, including event materials and the gala program, marking the organization's 40th anniversary. It was done by Studio Wyse and art director Vanessa Wyse, herself a frequent nominee for the Magawards with 5 gold and 2 silver medals since 2004; in 2012, she won triple gold hat trick for art direction of an entire issue, art direction of a single article and best magazine cover. 

Wyse said this of the new logo:
"For this years visual direction we went back through the archives and took design cues from when the NMAs were established in 1977. We couldn’t resist the fun, colourful and quirky nature of magazines in this era. We built the design around Philip Kelly’s font, Pump, drawn for Letraset around this time, which had the perfect amount of character and sophistication for this special anniversary.”
