Competition honors Hillsboro-based studio with certificates of excellence
Vogel Design, a Hillsboro-based digital and print design studio operated by David Vogel, was honored this month with 10 2017 American Graphic Design Award certificates, recognizing outstanding new work and design excellence.
The national competition is sponsored by Graphic Design USA magazine in New York, New York.
For more than five decades, GDUSA has sponsored a range of national design competitions, and its American Graphic Design Awards is the original and the flagship, open to the entire creative community: design firms, ad agencies, corporations, non-profits, institutions and more. It honors outstanding new work in 25 categories from print and packaging to Internet and interactive design.
“My mission is to always create unique and effective work for my customers,” Vogel said. “While it’s exciting to be
David B. Vogel is an award-winning graphic designer based in Hillsboro, Kansas. As a child he branded and created signage for his summertime start-up, Yellow Giraffe Lemonade, and has been passionate about design, web development, new technologies and marketing ever since.
Vogel focused on art, design and publishing in high school, and received recognition in 2008 from Music Theatre of Wichita in its Jester Awards program for outstanding graphic/playbill design. He graduated from Tabor College in 2012 with a bachelor of arts in Communications Studies, and minors in Integrated Marketing and English.
Before founding his full-time studio, Vogel worked as a graphic designer for Lenexa Christian Center, a megachurch in the Kansas City area, and at the Hillsboro Free Press as a web developer and graphic artist.
Vogel is honored to have received more than 30 awards for design work he has created for clients from such prestigious institutions as Graphic Design USA magazine (New York, New York), Midwest Free Community Papers (Des Moines, Iowa), and Music Theatre Wichita (Wichita, Kansas).
It’s no accident that Vogel based his design studio in the heart of small-town Kansas. “Creative firms are often out of the financial reach of rural Main Street businesses,” he said. “My aim is to fill this gap; to provide high quality, effective design and marketing materials at an economical price.”
