(WATERFORD, NY – January 8th, 2021) – Soft-Tex International, a leading manufacturer of sleep and home comfort products, is pleased to announce it was honored by Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) as part of the 2020 American Graphic Design Awards for the new innovative packaging for the SensorPEDIC Epic Chill Memory Foam Pillow which features Soft-Tex’s proprietary REACTEX cooling technology.

The American Graphic Design Award program is an annual, juried competition this year featuring more than 10,000 applicants. In a statement on the competition, GDUSA notes this year’s showcase “reflects the increasingly expansive ways in which graphic design shapes business and society, products and services, commerce and culture and causes.” Soft-Tex was the sole bedding company awarded this honor.

Soft-Tex Graphic Design Manager, Wendi Hauck, created the winning design and Director of Marketing Operations, Katherine Burger, was responsible for production.

Speaking on the award, Burger noted, “It’s an honor that Soft-Tex was chosen to receive this recognition. The eyecatching ice cube and glacier design elements capture the essence of the best-in-class, REACTEX cooling technology.”
