April 27, 2010, Chicago, IL – The International Interior Design Association (IIDA), in partnership with Imagination Custom Publishing, is pleased to announce it recently received the prestigious 2010 EXCEL Gold Award in Design Excellence from the Association of Media and Publishing (formerly SNAP) for Perspective, the Association’s quarterly journal.

According to the Association of Media and Publishing, the annual EXCEL awards “honor and represent the best publishing products of the association industry. The coveted EXCEL Award is the pinnacle of peer recognition and the seal of excellence in association publishing.”

Perspective won the design excellence award for publications having distributions of 20,000 or fewer. Perspective previously won a gold medal in 2007, and continues to push the envelope when it comes to design and overall aesthetics. In the fall of 2009, IIDA began to feature original art in every issue, and this dedication to great design has been received with great success across the Association’s Membership.


“We are so pleased to have received the prestigious EXCEL Award for Perspective,” commented Derrell Parker, IIDA President. “IIDA isn’t afraid of pushing boundaries in order to reach our evolving Membership base, and our readers mention again and again how much they appreciate our continued dedication to thought-provoking content and design.”
