Every year, the American Advertising Federation holds the American Advertising Awards (ADDYs), the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. This year, the Toledo chapter’s event was held at the Valentine Theater on February 23, and several client partners were among the celebrated winners!
- Rudolph Libbe Group took home a Silver Addy for RLGbuilds.com, a website representing the merge of five entities into the larger Rudolph Libbe Group.
- Perennials and Sutherland, LLC took home a Silver Addy for Perennials Rugs, showcasing their luxurious handmade rug collections handcrafted by skilled artisans.
- Bittersweet Farms took home a Silver Addy for “Sharing the Story,” a powerful video showcasing the transformative experience of those who live and work at Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, Ohio.
In addition, we celebrated another exciting moment as our own Steve Hanson received this year’s Silver Medal Award. This honor is reserved for an outstanding member of the advertising community, in recognition of their “creative ability,” “outstanding contributions to advertising,” and “contributions to the community.” While we’ve all had the experience of working closely with him and seeing his vision at work, it was a great experience to be there as he was recognized by our larger creative community.
This video, shown at the awards show, captures just a bit of the essence for which Steve was celebrated:
Congratulations to Steve, and a huge round of applause to all of our client and internal team members who brought these great projects into being this year!
