To our clients: You are the BEST OF (our) SHOW. / February 29, 2016

In advertising you work hard all year. You strategize and analyze, rationalize and harmonize. You think creatively. Push concepts until they almost break you, then push some more. You do this for your clients’ success, naturally. But also to satisfy that inner hunger to create inspired work.

Then you select the best stuff to see how it competes against creations from other shops. At the American Advertising Awards held recently in central Minnesota, we submitted 44 pieces that made us proud and made the needle move significantly for our clients.

36 of them won awards. 15 Gold ADDYs, 18 silvers – and three of the four top awards handed out at the show. We were thrilled, to say the least.

Among the entries recognized by a panel of professional judges was a comprehensive campaign for Hatteras Yachts. The collective talents of our entire team were evident in the project, which included advertising, photography, websites, catalogs, tradeshow booth design, digital and email marketing and related collateral. The campaign won Best of Show.

Thank you, Hatteras.

The same night, two of three judges selected Adventure work for their Judge’s Choice awards. One went to a brand video created for Frog Bikes: www.youtube.com/watch?v=we25vNnA1KQ. The other to Striper Boats’ 2016 catalog.

Thank you, Frog Bikes.

Thank you, Striper and the Larson Boat Group.

And thank you to each and every one of our amazing clients. You expect us to work hard and we love you for it. Because you let us do what we were born to do: create, collaborate and stretch to be better every day.

So on behalf of everyone at Adventure Advertising, we raise a collective glass to you to say thank you and to promise: You haven’t seen anything yet.
