Diary of Gold Ink 2001
"Judging for the Gold Ink awards is a long day's work, but so interesting. It is always an eye-opener to see how the quality of a job is dependent on the choice of paper stock, ink, binding and printing process," one jubilant judge noted at the day's end.
Indeed, the judges take great pains to give serious consideration to the more than 1,500 entries received. And then, they had to decide on the winners and the losers. The esteemed panel of 2001 Gold Ink judges includes: Linda Dickson, graphic designer, LRP Publications; Brooke Gascho, graphic designer, LRP Publications; Jose-phine Kukuka, production manager, Jewish Exponent; Vince Marini, Jr., director, print production, Juno Online; Gina Montemurro, group production director, North Ameri-can Publishing; Lu Moyer, publishing technology, LRP Publications; Jill Murphy, graphic specialist , LRP Publications; Robin Norman, director of editorial production, The Jewish Publication Society; John Pearce, senior production manager, Printing Impressions magazine; Nancy Sicilia, production manager, LRP Publications; and Michael Washburn, editor, Running Press.
