Washington Women In PR 2006

First, one has to submit projects for awards in order to have a jury of peers review and acknowledge an outstanding project. Part of any strategic plan includes that process and I help clients identify possible avenues where a client’s project might stand a good chance to win.
 

Second, it takes a worthy project to win—most of the time.

Third, it takes a team to win – all of the time!

A great client supports the entire process both monetarily as well as with the project itself and with ideas. Graphic designers certainly play a major role in marketing awards and that includes the coordinators who prepare the submissions.

While the awards here may represent the conceptual and strategic plans brought forth by me, a team of exceptionally talented individuals contributed to the final WIN.
