F+W’s Print and HOW Magazines Win Prestigious Folio: Awards

FOLIO: Magazine announced the winners of the 2014 Eddie and Ozzie Awards, the largest competition in magazine publishing, which garners more than 2,000 entries, and HOW and Print

F+W’s Print magazine, a 75-year-old publication focusing on the intersection of graphic design and visual culture, took home top honors, winning Best Consumer Magazine Full Issue in the media, entertainment and publishing category—beating out much larger titles such as People magazine. 

F+W’s HOW magazine, a 30-year-old publication whose mission is to inspire and educate graphic designers, received honorable mention in the B-to-B Full Issue category. HOW and Print both received honorable mentions in their Overall Design categories.

“It’s impossible to celebrate this without acknowledging the fact that we get to produce work for one of the best readerships possible,” HOW editor Jessica Kuhn says. “I truly admire the work of graphic designers and how their craft touches literally everything, impacting the world as we know it.” 

As Print editor Zachary Petit says, “We’re completely honored. This goes to show that publications do not have to have an audience as large as The New York Times to make a splash on the media landscape today—good editorial and design is all that matters.”

The awards complement a number of other accolades for HOW and PRINT, including numerous previous Eddie and Ozzies, and five National Magazine Awards.
