The YGS Group Wins Award for Mobility Magazine Redesign

The YGS Group is an Award of Excellence winner in the 2012 APEX® Awards for its redesign of Worldwide ERC®’s Mobility magazine. This is the second award for publication excellence in 2012 for Mobility magazine.

Mobility magazine’s redesign took place in late 2011 when Worldwide ERC® first contracted with The YGS Group. The YGS Group provides TOTAL Solutions for Worldwide ERC®, managing the editorial development, creative design, and advertising sales for Mobility magazine.

“Working with The YGS Group for custom publishing was our association’s first large-scale publishing outsourcing experience,” said Anita Brienza, Worldwide ERC® senior vice president, communications and marketing. “Not only did they bring in an expert creative and editorial team and immediately earn our respect and confidence, they took the time to learn our business and listen to our ‘wish list.’ They delivered dynamic recommendations, and redesigned Mobility with stunning effect for a striking re-introduction with our first new issue in January 2012. We are delighted clients! This honor is well-deserved.”

APEX® Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the ability to achieve overall communications excellence. APEX® Grand Awards honor the outstanding works in each main category, while APEX® Awards of Excellence recognize exceptional entries in each of the individual categories.

The panel of judges for APEX® 2012 included John De Lellis, Concepts Editor & Publisher, Carolyn Mulford, noted author and Senior Writer & Editor of Writer’s Web Watch and the Writing That Works Archives, Christine Turner, Contributing Editor of the Writing That Works.
