Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) May 11, 2010
Ascend Integrated Media is proud to announce that we are the recipient of a 2010 Platinum Hermes Creative Award. The Association of Marketing and Communication professionals’ judges awarded a Platinum award in the CD Based Multi-Media category to Ascend’s Heartsounds CD http://hermesawards.com/list.php .
The Heartsounds CD was created to allow Merck to distribute promotional items at the 2009 American Heart Association Annual Meeting while complying with new, stricter PhRMA codes. Heartsounds reproduces the sounds of hearts of patients with various cardiac anomalies, describes key attributes of those conditions and highlights which sounds cardiologists would key in on as they evaluate their patients. The compact disc contains not only an auditory example of the heart condition but a phonosonogram, which is a visual representation of the audio contained on the compact disc.
