The Rewards of Awards
Developing branding and creative that meets our clients’ strategic business objectives is at the heart of what we do. When that same creative receives accolades, it is doubly rewarding. As a designer, it is a gratifying feeling to know that a jury of your peers appreciates the design concepts and nuances of the projects that you pour your heart and soul into.
In the creative community, there is often debate about the value of design competitions. We enter them for two reasons: 1) It provides positive reinforcement to the team; and 2) Many of the RFPs that we receive ask for a list of recent design awards. In theory, we do get exposure in various publications and online, but that falls a distant third.
We are fortunate to have a talented and passionate team that has earned several accolades of late. Here are just a few:
