The RTPI Scotland’s journal – Scottish Planner – has won a prestigious industry award at a ceremony last month.
The journal and its designer Barton Willmore (pictured) were crowned the overall winner for their ‘fun and creative design approach’ in the ‘Publishing’ category at the Creativepool 2018 Awards.
Responding to the win, Kate Houghton MRTPI, Policy Officer, RTPI Scotland said:
“We are thrilled the revamped Scottish Planner has won this award. Feedback consistently confirms the Scottish Planner is highly valued by our members and this award is an endorsement - from the design industry - of the quality of the publication.
“We use it as one of the Institute’s most important tools for engaging non-planners with what are often technical policy issues. The policy world is crowded, and so the eye-catching design that Barton Wilmore has created is essential to winning our key audiences’ attention and delivering our message effectively.
“The team at Barton Wilmore consistently create great visuals that communicate a specific planning perspective on big policy ideas – from Scottish heritage, through to demographic change, to infrastructure planning - in a fun and accessible way.”
The Scottish Planner is the foremost planning journal in Scotland. It is distributed quarterly to all 2100 RTPI Members in Scotland in addition to over 300 national bodies, media organisations, Members of the Scottish Parliament and local authorities. Barton Wilmore redesigned the magazine in 2014.
