Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) October 13, 2010
In a competition of marketing materials for local economic development companies, Ann Arbor SPARK was awarded two first place wins for materials designed by Wagner Design Associates. The wins came in the categories of "print marketing materials" and "website" for populations between 100,001 and 500,000. The competition, sponsored by the Michigan Economic Developers Association (MEDA), is in its 5th year. In 2009 the Lenawee Economic Development Corporation was awarded first place for "print marketing materials" designed by Wagner Design.
MEDA, an organization whose objective is to lead Michigan's economic development through education, networking and advocacy on economic development, announced winners at an awards ceremony held in Traverse City on September 16th. All submissions were categorized by the size of the community represented by the economic development organization. Then they were evaluated based on creativity, content and branding.
Ann Arbor SPARK's mission is to be the driving force in establishing the Ann Arbor Region as a desired place for business expansion and location by identifying and meeting the needs of business at every stage, from those that are established to those working to successfully commercialize innovations.
