University Marketing and Communications designer Ron McVey recently received national recognition from NewPage Corporation for his work on a major university publication.

McVey was presented a certificate of excellence in the graphic arts from the Dayton, Ohio-based paper company for his work on "The President's Report: Education Redefined." The 16-page publication is the year-end report in which President Jo Ann M. Gora highlights the university's achievements of the previous academic year.

The publication included a vibrant fold-out page design to illustrate Ball State's initiatives to redefine education by creating a high-tech - and high-touch - immersive learning environment that allows students to engage with learning in a new way. The experience is intense, creative, collaborative, personal and, at times even mirrors the risk and reward of real-life ventures.

During his 40-year career with Ball State, McVey has earned numerous awards individually and as a member of design teams. The awards include gold Addys from the Advertising Federation of East Central Indiana to top honors from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

"I think it was very complimentary for Ball State to win an award from this corporation, which works with clients across the country," McVey said. "It's recognition of the successful work we are producing to move our brand and the university forward."
