Vision to Vaingloriousness
well. not really. WE just like the word.
You don’t know you’ve got a hit on your hands until you sink your teeth into a project and make it happen. When your peers acknowledge your work and present you with awards, you know you’ve got something. But it’s not all about industry praise. It’s about how well-received your message is to the consumer. To the world. Has it made an impact? A difference? When you’ve got the attention of popular press, made headlines and set trends that help positively transform the world, that’s when you know you’ve got something extraordinary.
But let’s face it. Getting awards feels pretty darn nice.
The ADDY award was the first of many received by our creative director and founder, Gayl Hyde. The American Advertising Awards is one of the industry’s largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 professional and student entries each year through local club competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising.
The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work created within television and across video for all screens. Over 12,000 entries are received from all 50 states and 5 continents, so it’s a pretty big deal to win one of these bad boys, let alone four! There are two tiers of Tellys: Silver (the highest award) and Bronze; Hyde’s excellence in creative direction for TV retail advertising was recognized on four separate occasions—she’s taken home one silver and three bronze awards.
THE VISION AWARDS
The Vision Awards is a competition open to more than 20,000 advertising agencies and video production companies throughout the United States. Hyde’s collaboration with a heavy-hitting production company and PR firm resulted in a series of innovative television spots recognized by The Vision Awards.
international eco AWARD
The NRDC International ECO Awards honors environmental achievement in communication, graphic and visual arts. Our creative director, Gayl Hyde, was awarded a Silver award for the design and art direction of a retail product catalog for an environmentally “awarehouse” in Atlanta selling only recycled and upcycled fashions, accessories and home goods. The catalog was printed on 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly inks.
