CHICAGO — American Libraries’ art director, Rebecca Lomax, has been awarded a 2018 Peter Lisagor Award for best design by a specialty/trade publication.

Presented by the Chicago Headline Club, the largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, the awards recognize the best of Chicago journalism. Lomax was recognized for her design work on the March/April 2018 (“In a Virtual World”), September/October 2018 (“The 2018 Library Design Showcase”) and the November/December 2018 (“Good Job Hunting”) issues. The 2018 Peter Lisagor Award winners were announced May 10 at the Union League Club of Chicago.

“Becky’s outstanding design work consistently brings our content to life,” said American Libraries Editor and Publisher Sanhita SinhaRoy. “The American Libraries team couldn’t be more proud of her well-deserved achievement.”
