Technology Review, MIT's magazine of innovation, won a prestigious Folio: Editorial Excellence Award and five Folio: Ozzie Awards for magazine design at a ceremony in New York City on Oct. 30.
The magazine won a Silver Folio: Editorial Excellence Award in the consumer science and technology magazine category. It also won three Gold Folio: Ozzie Awards for best overall design, best feature design and best cover, and two Silver Folio: Ozzie Awards for best use of typography and best use of illustration, all in the association/nonprofit magazine category.
The editorial excellence awards are judged by leading magazine industry editors, publishers and consultants. The Ozzie Awards recognize design excellence in 14 categories in the consumer, trade, association and custom-publishing fields.
"Editorial content and graphic design are the two pillars of any magazine's success," said John Benditt, Technology Review's editor in chief. "It's very gratifying to be recognized in both areas, since we give them equal weight at Technology Review."
"We've always believed that it's possible to make a magazine that is design-savvy without sacrificing legibility, and these awards are a really nice confirmation of that," said Technology Review's art director Eric Mongeon.
Technology Review, first published in 1899, has won numerous awards since its relaunch in 1998, including two 2000 Folio: Ozzie Awards and a 1999 Folio: Editorial Excellence Award for best consumer science and technology magazine.
