Kate Winslet famously told Time Magazine that she keeps her Oscar statue in her bathroom. Russell Crowe claims to keep his in a chicken coop. Natalie Portman admits she doesn’t even know where hers is. Well, here at PB+J when we are honoured with an award, we do a team high-five, and clear some space front-and-centre on the shelves in our office.
We don’t crave fancy industry awards or distinction–we already love the work we do every day. Our most valued reward is a client that’s head over heels, over the moon with their new brand and/or website. We exchange team high-fives when that happens too. However, when our work is given the respect of our peers in the industry, we can’t help but feel a sense of pride. It’s also a kick @$% way to thank our clients for choosing us and trusting us with their brands. We stand a little taller these days, because The Davey Awards were handed out, and PB+J received 10 wins in the Design and Website categories.
We’re going to need a bigger shelf! Here’s our work that took home Davey honours this year:
|NEWTONS LEGAL Category: Logos||SOUTH POND FARMS Category: Packaging||PB+J (THAT'S US!) Category: Branding|
The Davey Awards is an international creative award focused exclusively on honouring outstanding creative work from the best small agencies worldwide. We were up against some steep competition. What do they always say? “It’s an honour just to be in the same category as these contenders”. The 2015 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms. So, heck yes, we’re pretty stoked to be a small firm making big waves in the design community for our clients.
Join us in a virtual high-five. The entire team shares this honour with our (ahem...award-winning!) clients.
