Modesto’s own news mecca for entertainment and night life in our community.
PGrimaldi currently directs the overall design, advertising production and print publication of Modesto View Magazine. And since 2012 we have seen the growth of readership, advertising and distribution of Modesto’s most popular entertainment news monthly. MV’s continued success can be attributed to an upgraded visual presentation of positive information and focus on Modesto. Creative, localized covers, local stories and photos enhance the publication’s appeal. Consolidating a team of creative professional photographers and writers, Modesto View has gone on to receive over 9 Gold Recognition Awards from two leading media organizations, MarCon and HERMES Creative Awards under our art direction.
Modesto View Magazine proudly announces two GOLD Awards and one Honorable Mention presented by the 2013 MarCom Awards, honoring excellence in marketing and communications. MarCom is sponsored by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. Since 1994, AMCP has judged over 160,000 entries. MarCom is one of the oldest, largest and most visible awards in the creative industry.
P Grimaldi, Creative is responsible for visual content, ad production and art direction for Modesto View Magazine. It is published by Chris Murphy, editor and creator, and supported by Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group of Modesto. Modesto View is produced monthly, and its mission has been “Serving Civic Pride Since 1997”.
This is a first attempt by Modesto View Magazine to enter a major publishing design competition since Pete Grimaldi has taken over revamping its print production and layout in 2011. “We have developed a reader friendly layout, accommodating more creative advertising while maintaining the magazines sense of fun and excitement about the community it serves.” The magazine’s winning covers feature the work of Modesto photographer Michael Mangano as well as many other local artists and contributors.
Three complete 32-page issues were entered and all three received MarCom notice. July’s “Modestocana” issue and October’s “Halloween” issue were both awarded GOLD MarComs while August’s “Summertime Fling” received an Honorable mention. All magazines were recently published in 2013 and establishes this niche publication’s winning visual direction going forward.
