Ripley PR, a national business-to-business (B2B) public relations agency, was honored February 15 by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) with two silver ADDY awards for Ripley PR’s website design and for the agency’s logo design. Ripley PR – offering a full range of strategic communication services, including crisis management, media relations, and social media strategies – specializes in commercial construction, healthcare IT, franchising and manufacturing.
“I am extremely honored to have the agency’s brand identity recognized by the premier advertising organization in our industry,” said Heather Ripley, founder and CEO of Ripley PR. “Our website design is very simple and easy to navigate, yet artistically designed. It’s truly a privilege to have our efforts acknowledged by the American Advertising Federation.”
The American Advertising Awards, formerly known as the ADDY Awards, is the world's largest advertising competition with more than 50,000 entries each year and includes three levels of judging, including local, regional and national. The American Advertising Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types, creative by all sizes and entrants of all levels from anywhere in the world.
The awards were presented during the 49th Annual American Advertising Awards Show and Gala in Knoxville on February 15 at the historic Foundry venue downtown.
Ripley worked with veteran creative director Mark Limbach, owner of Category 5ive, a Southwest Fla. branding and marketing firm ‘bent on gale force creative’ to come up with and achieve the final concept. Limbach works with Ripley PR and the agency’s U.S. and international clients. His award-winning designs have appeared online and in numerous publications including Adweek, Communication Arts and Print magazine.
Ripley PR’s designs will automatically be entered into the regional AAF competition before the final national awards are presented by the AAF at its national conference and awards ceremony in Boca Raton, Fla., May 28-31, 2014.
