Share Article

Naperville, IL is filled with many great businesses... so what does it take to stand out from the crowd? Marketing and Design Firm, Paul Gregory Media showed these businesses what it takes, and earned two top awards for it in the process.

Naperville marketing company Paul Gregory Media (PGM) recently received a Platinum Award and Gold Award in the 2010 Hermes Creative Awards Competition. PGM won the awards for the branding of American Dreams Maintenance, Inc. and for the collateral design of Clix Portrait Studios fundraising campaign.

The branding of American Dreams Maintenance, Inc., which won a Platinum Award, was created to build credibility, trust, and confidence in their established company. American Dreams President, Frank Diaz, states, "Paul's creative ability, follow-through and total professionalism is way too rare in business today. Their creative development process was thorough and resulted in the best possible branding solution for us. Our new brand compliments our mission perfectly: At American Dreams, whether it's with our landscaping or janitorial clients, We Don't Talk About It, We Do It!"

The Hermes Gold Award was earned for a brochure design created for Clix Portrait Studios in Wheaton, IL. The single gatefold layout was designed to demonstrate how simple and hassle-free a Clix fundraising campaign can be. Joseph Izzo, owner of the Wheaton location states, "PGM's principal, Paul Feith, has the ability to take an idea and develop a full campaign around it - from concept to design to implementation to ongoing operations. PGM didn't just design a brochure - they helped develop the fundraising campaign from start to finish and made the implementation straightforward."

The Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals. There were over 3,600 entries from throughout the United States and several other countries in the Hermes Creative Awards 2010 competition. Entries came from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers.

PGM principal Paul Feith said, "Our no-nonsense approach to problem solving makes us different than other design firms. Before we focus our attention on our clients and their business, we take a good look at things from a bird's eye view. We know that simplifying their visual communication makes their message more accessible to a larger target market and improves their success in progress, profits, and growth. When we focus our design on their customer's problems, the successful design solution ends up benefitting both of them. We're thrilled to be acknowledged for our latest work, and we've been lucky to work with amazing clients like American Dreams and Clix, who are driven to innovate, focus on quality, and lead their industries."
