Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) December 14, 2006
Eriksen Translations is pleased to announce that it has received a 2006 MarCom Creative Award for its 20th anniversary calendar. The calendar was created and produced by the company at the end of 2005 as a marketing campaign that both celebrated the important anniversary and highlighted the work done in its local community.
The MarCom Creative Awards is an international competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication practitioners. Entries are judged by industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. There were over 5,000 entries in over 200 categories this year. Eriksen was among 15% to be named a Gold Winner.
"It is wonderfully gratifying to finish our 20th anniversary year being recognized by the MarCom Awards for the calendar that kicked off this exciting milestone," said Vigdis Eriksen, president and CEO of Eriksen Translations. "We have always prided ourselves on taking design and messaging seriously, and it's an honor to be acknowledged for a project we had such fun creating."
Conceived by Eriksen's Communications Manager, Alexandra Farkas, and with original photography by Gerri Hernandez and cover design by Mike Metz, the calendar depicts how the translation and interpreting work that Eriksen does impacts the communities surrounding its Brooklyn headquarters.
