We do not make it a habit of entering award competitions. Our goal has always been to concentrate on increasing a client's sales through unique and compelling messages, rather than creating advertising to massage egos. Some of the greatest award-winning advertising campaigns in the industry's history have failed miserably to increase sales. We are proud of the fact that many of our clients have grown in size over the years, and we believe we have played a significant part in that growth.
However, we have over the years made a few exceptions when we felt the creative level and quality of the work was so extraordinary that it should be seen by a larger audience. Our most recent industry recognitions were a First Place Award in the 2009 New Jersey Advertising Club Annual Jersey Awards competition for the design of a brochure for the Edgewood Country Club, and a Second Place Award for an animated holiday eCard for "K" Line America, Inc. We were also awarded a First Prize in the 2005 New Jersey Advertising Club Annual Jersey Awards competition for the design of The Clinton Global Initiative invitation. Our website design for Thermo Systems was also selected for a 2008 American Graphic Design Award. We also received two Certificates of Excellence for brochure design from The Art Directors Club of New Jersey and two American Graphic Design Awards for brochure design and logo design in the Graphic Design:USA annual competition.
