(FORT VALLEY, GEORGIA) – Georgia Fuzzies has been recognized by Graphic Design USA’s 58thanniversary American Package Design Awards from more than 2,200 entries worldwide in the category of package and point-of-purchase design for branding, packaging and general design excellence. 

Hailed as “exceptional, with a solution that is creative, strategic and well-executed,” by Gordon Kaye, Editor of Graphic Design USA, Genuine Georgia’s creative and packaging design for Georgia Fuzzies was selected from a handful of other winners with a global reach. Other brands who were recognized this year include Amazon, Apple, BMW, Fresh Direct, Harris Teeter, Kellogg, LEGO, McDonald’s, Microsoft, Sam’s Club, Snapple, Tops Markets, Walmart, Wegmans, Xbox and more.

Harold helps our brand come to life,” notes Will McGehee, partner with Genuine Georgia. 

The American Package Design Awards competition is presented each year by Graphic Design USA, as the print and online news source for graphic design professionals.
