Professor Anthony Stanton Honored with the 2013 Michael H. Bruno TAGA Award

Anthony Stanton Teaching Professor of Graphic media Management and Director of the Graphic Media Management Program at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business has been named the recipient of the 2013 Michael H. Bruno Award for outstanding contributions to the Graphic Arts Industry. The award is bestowed annually by the Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA).

The Michael H. Bruno Award from TAGA recognizes a professional with a distinguished career in appreciation of his dedicated services and contributions to the advancement of graphic arts internationally. Established in 1948 as a forum for reporting on new research and technology in the graphic arts, TAGA is an international organization of technologists, scientists, technical, and production personnel in the printing and allied industries.

Professor Stanton has authored 61 publications, taught more than 100 seminars, tutorials, and workshops, and consulted for numerous organizations. He has served on a variety of industry committees and judged 15 national and international print contests.

During his 16 years at CMU, Stanton has attracted students from every college at the university and introduced new courses, including “Publishing on the Worldwide Web,” “Interactive Media Management,” “Color Reproduction and Management,” and “Publishing in the Information Age.”

Before Carnegie Mellon, he spent 12 years at the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GATF) as the Director of its Process Control Division, focusing on the design, production, and marketing of process control devices.

While at GATF, he created the first Color Reproduction Test Kits, which incorporated test forms designed to enable users to optimize the quality of an entire printing system through a combination of diagnostic, process control, characterization, and calibration targets. He also designed and oversaw the introduction of digital quality control targets in the early 1990s. Some of the targets he designed then are still sold by Printing Industries of America (GATF’s successor) today.

Dr. Stanton will be presented with the 2013 Michael H. Bruno Award on February 5 at TAGA’s 65th Annual Technical Conference in Portland, Oregon.
