Advertising Age Names Interbrand Designer Finalist in Global Issue Cover Competition

NEW YORK (June 14, 2010) - Advertising Age, the leading global source of news and intelligence for the marketing industry has named Interbrand designer, Jennifer Mangan as a top finalist in their Global Cover Competition.

Seeking submissions in May 2010, Advertising Age enlisted young creatives under the age of 30 to design the cover for its global-themed edition. Creatives from all disciplines were asked to submit cover designs based upon the theme: "A Connected World," reflecting how brands interact with consumers in an interconnected and global economy.

The design illustrates the idea of brands transcending language and geographical boundaries," said Interbrand Senior Designer Jennifer Mangan. "It conveys the fluid connection between brands and consumers, quite literally putting new experiences at your fingertips. The design substitutes the original keys and letterforms with globally recognized brand portals envisioned as favicons. The graphic style delivers the concept in a simple manner, furthering the idea of living in a connected world."

The winning designs were published in the June 14 issue of Advertising Age and will be featured on billboards surrounding the Majestic Hotel at Cannes during the 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival this month.

Mangan joined Interbrand in 2007, and since then has developed branding programs for clients including Nintendo, Bank of America, Argo Group, Ethel's Chocolate and ChildFund International. She is an Australian native and studied Communication Design at RMITT University in Melbourne, Australia.
