Innovative design remains core to our business and we are delighted to receive this award for the second consecutive year from ICMA.
Littleton, Colo. (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
CPI Card Group, a global leader in financial, EMV and commercial card production, and related services, announced today that the company has won the badge submission for the ICMA Expo for the second year in a row.
ICMA’s Badge Design Competition allows ICMA's manufacturer members to submit their EXPO themed badge design for consideration as the badge worn by all EXPO attendees. The purpose of this is to recognize the expertise and talent of member companies with card design and production. CPI Card Group will be recognized at the ICMA Expo this week.
CPI Card Group uses the highest quality card materials, with this badge being no exception. Throughout the design process, it was important to the team at CPI that the badge would act as a ticket giving access to a golden wealth of knowledge and networking at the ICMA Expo, sparking the idea of a badge using a 24-karat gold layer of ink to symbolize this industry opportunity. Creating a new gold bar standard, the artwork around the edges was born from the art of legal tender and government certificates, playing off the location of the Expo located in Washington, D.C. while symbolizing value by incorporating elaborate designs and link work seen on currency throughout the world.
“Innovative design remains core to our business and we are delighted to receive this award for the second consecutive year from ICMA,” said Diane Jackson, Vice President of Strategic Marketing for CPI Card Group. “We continue to invest in our design capabilities to help our customers differentiate their own card products while having the opportunity to showcase our creativity through industry initiatives such as this. Winning the ID Ideas Badge Competition demonstrates how we continually push the boundary of design and we are honored for ICMA to recognize our efforts once again.”
The ICMA selection team commented that the card was selected as the winning badge because of its unique card construction and innovative features.
