National Awards Recognize Diversity of Small Firm

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - October 7, 2008) - Soulo Communications was honored with three wins in the 2008 American Graphic Design Awards.

Both are illustrated children's books that have been steady sellers. "Until We Meet Again" was also one of three finalists for a Benjamin Franklin Award, an esteemed American book award regarded as the highest national honor in independent publishing administered by the Independent Book Publishers Association.

Soulo Communications' third award was for Catholic Eldercare's 2007 Annual Report, and honored the design and layout of the sixteen-page booklet. This was the first award Catholic Eldercare has received for any print material produced in its long history as a senior services provider.
