Carton Donofrio Partners won an “Excellence in Advertising” award from the McGraw-Hill Construction publication Architectural Record. The award, given for the interactive campaign titled “Dynamic Glass”, was announced at this summer’s American Institute of Architects’ 2013 National Convention and Design Exposition.

The winning campaign, called Dynamic Glass, is a series of banner ads created to promote a new product launch for Guardian Industries and was chosen from the best of more than 150 advertisements that ran in the 2012 issues of Architectural Record (print and online). The ads by Carton Donofrio Partners were specifically recognized for clean animation and design.

Winners were chosen based on superior content and graphic presentation. The judges consisted of a panel of 10 renowned architects from across the country.

“Architects appreciate good design. They're very visual people,” said Christopher Scharpf, Associate Creative Director at Carton Donofrio Partners. “We're happy to see our work for Guardian Industries lives up to their very high visual standards.”

Chris Dolan, director of Commercial Glass Marketing at Guardian Industries, commented, “It is exciting that our ads were able to attract the attention of the judges in a crowded and creative field of competitors.”
