2019 Addy Awards
This year, we were honored to receive several ADDYs for our creative work during 2018. We took home 4 silver ADDYs and 7 bronze ADDYs at last week’s ceremony, and had a ton of fun amongst the best creatives in Mid Michigan. Our work for Cathy Myers for Congress, the Sierra Club, the Whitmer Gubernatorial Inauguration, and our own Digital Brochure for Campaigns and Causes all won silver awards. We’re grateful to see our creative and design work recognized, and we’re already looking forward to what this new year will bring!
Cathy Myers for Congress
Cathy Myers is a dynamic and inspiring public school teacher who ran for Congress in Wisconsin’s 1st District — the seat vacated by Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan! — in 2018.
Cathy faced some significant challenges early on in her campaign. As a teacher and a single mom without a large network of wealthy individuals, early fundraising efforts were challenging. Then, her primary opponent’s launch video went viral, bringing him national attention. With all this in mind, we worked with Cathy and her team to create a unique brand, an authentic voice, and an aggressive digital fundraising program. Learn more about the project here!
The Sierra Club Endorsement Website
The primary goal of this landing page was to educate voters about the environmental issues at stake in this election. The website featured Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s plan and her voting record, as compared to that of opponent Attorney General Bill Schuette. The secondary goals were a) to communicate to voters that Gretchen Whitmer was the best candidate for Governor, and b) encourage them to commit to vote. Check out the full project here!
Whitmer Gubernatorial Inauguration
We designed the invitations and programs for Michigan’s 2019 Gubernatorial Inauguration for Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist II. We began by creating a brand to serve the Transition, then implemented it throughout the Inaugural materials centered around the theme of “Building Bridges.” We are proud to have played a small part in the beginning of a new chapter in our state’s history that is focused on creating a better Michigan for all of us. Take a look at the materials below–including a custom Mackinac Bridge die cut design for the invitations!
Digital Brochure for Campaigns and Causes
In the Digital Brochure for Campaigns and Causes, we illustrate how we’ve helped campaigns and causes effect positive change, make an impact, and win. We are proud of the work we’ve done over the years to help hundreds of campaigns, advocacy groups, unions, and ballot measures achieve their goals. Success stories such as Congressman Dan Kildee, the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, the Michigan Education Association and Flint Public Library are visually detailed in the brochure.
