I’d be remiss to inform you if I left this out- last night at the Dayton Ad Club Hermes awards, we won 2 bronzes and a silver. Very disappointing. Overall, there were fewer entries, and less people at the show. Noticeably absent this year were Graphica and Wilson Advertising and Design. Considering Wilson got caught last year submitting work that wasn’t placed by the client- and had to return their Golds, I can understand why they didn’t show up this year; but Graphica almost always enters some amazing work for Crown Equipment and I was sad not to see it.
Our winners were Silver for the BioFoundation letterhead and cards, and bronzes for Early Express variable data direct mail, and the Second Street Market posters.
Some of our work that didn’t get in was better than what won. One piece I should have entered in a different category, and I plumb forgot about another that I should have entered. Judges can be so fickle.
Not to worry, we’ve already started on next years award winning work.
