The Zoomba Group team was recognized for outstanding Custom Publishing design with a Folio: Ozzie Award for its work on Aliworld. The Aliworld publication serves as a dedicated communication piece detailing some of Ali Group North America’s developments along with showcasing operator success stories, industry trends and product innovations.
Zoomba Group’s custom publishing arm offers an exclusive, high-value opportunity to messaging. In addition to print publishing options, Zoomba Group offers an array of custom e-content pieces that support both FE&S and rd+d audiences.
“The Aliworld publication is a true collaboration between Zoomba Group and Ali Group on every detail, from content to design,” said Maureen M. Slocum, CEO and founder of Zoomba Group. “The close attention to detail from everyone involved – specifically Ryan Blackman, director of marketing & communications of Ali Group North America – combined with their flexibility and expertise in all areas, were instrumental in the success of this project.”
“Our North American edition of Aliworld is now in its sixth consecutive year of publication and we couldn’t be more proud of the end product and the work that everyone at both the Ali Group and Zoomba Group has put into it,” said Ryan Blackman. “The vision of the magazine came from Luciano Berti, Ali Group’s founder and Filippo Berti, CEO following the success of the international edition. The publication continues to evolve and advance with each annual edition.”
In addition to the custom publishing win, Zoomba Group took home several additional editorial and design awards at the Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards event, most notably top honor for Range of Work by a Single Author, which went to Zoomba Group’s veteran contributing editor for both FE&S and rd+d, Dana Tanyeri. On the design side, Zoomba Group’s Assistant Art Director and Production Assistant, Eric Uhl, was recognized with a Folio: Rising Stars Award, which puts him on the coveted who’s who list of individuals making their mark and disrupting the status quo of magazine media.
Additional Zoomba Group honorable mention recognitions included:
