Stanford Social Innovation Review Honored With 2009 Maggie Award for Most Improved Publication
STANFORD, Calif., May 1, 2009 — Stanford Social Innovation Review has been honored with a 2009 Maggie Award for its successful redesign. Judged on its editorial package, readability, research, cover, and editorial design elements, the journal received top recognition in the category “Most Improved Annual, Semi-Annual, Three-Time or Quarterly/Trade & Consumer.”
Bestowed annually by the nonprofit Western Publishing Association, the prestigious Maggie Awards have recognized achievement in a wide variety of publishing categories for more than 58 years in the western United States. Other Maggie winners this year included Sunset, Mother Jones, San Francisco, and LA Weekly. A complete list of this year’s winners is available online: www.wpa-online.org/2009winners.php.
Stanford Social Innovation Review’s makeover last year marked the publication’s fifth anniversary. Built upon months of online surveys, individual and group meetings, and discussions with key stakeholders, the new look was created by award-winning designer David Herbick, the Chevy Chase, Md.–based creative force behind the redesign of Foreign Policy, Civilization, Technology Review, and Preservation.
