Legacy on Lanier Magazine earns Silver Communicator Award

The Summer 2013 Issue of Legacy on Lanier Magazine was recognized for overall design with the Silver Communicator Award of Distinction from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.

Legacy on Lanier Magazine was launched in 2008 to outline the accommodations, amenities and activities at the Lake Lanier Islands destination, as well as illustrate its ongoing transformation following the purchase of the resort’s lease by Islands Management Corp.

Lake Lanier Islands Chairman of the Board Virgil Williams said he feels comfortable in the role of publisher, a skill he honed during his previous ownership of Georgia Trend Magazine.

Legacy on Lanier Magazine has been recognized by AIVA in the past for its Summer 2011 and 2012 issues. The custom publication has also been honored for design excellence by Magazine Association of the Southeast with several GAMMA Awards.

“I believe I say this every time we complete a new issue, but I feel this latest edition of Legacy on Lanier Magazine is our best one yet,” said Stephanie Orr, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Lake Lanier Islands Resort.
