The Albany Ad Club held their annual ADDY Awards gala Friday, March 16 and we were there. Jessica, Wayne, Mike, Ed, Gerry and I all made a night of it and had a great time. I’ve got to add, winning helps. So does some good food.
We had two entries this year and fortunately our categories, both in Sales Promotion, are early in the program so we didn’t have to wait long to find out the results. The first was a LEGO Point of Purchase display that won a Silver Addy and was the only winner in the category. Next up was Trade Show Exhibit with our entry for the SYLVANIA International Lightfair exhibit. We topped the earlier win by winning a Gold Addy which means we get to move on to the regional competition. While all of our projects our truly team efforts between our staff and our clients, a special acknowledgment must go out to Ed as the designer on both projects. The best projects always start with a great design.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees last night. The Capital Region might not be the biggest but it does offer some great creative talent as evidenced by work on display last night.
