CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 22, 2015 – The Brandon Agency, one of the largest independently owned advertising agencies in the Carolinas, was honored at the American Advertising Federation’s 2015 Third District American Advertising Awards show (Addy Awards), held in Murrells Inlet, on February 20, 2016.
The agency was recognized for outstanding work in website design and collateral material receiving seven awards in total, including five gold and two silver awards. Submissions honored with gold awards advance to the regional level for additional competition.
The Brandon Agency produced four award winning websites in the Consumer Website categories (Fish Hippie, gold and Escapada Living, gold) and B2B Website categories (e3-Studio, gold and The Brandon Agency, silver).
“We are proud of the work we produce for our clients, and it is a privilege that our peers are able to recognize us for the work we create,” Scott Brandon, CEO of The Brandon Agency, said. “Agency work is truly a team effort and these awards are a testament to our team as a whole.”
Additionally, The Brandon Agency received a gold Addy for Sales and Promotion efforts through Fish Hippie, a gold award for Collateral Material through RiverLights, a Newland Community, and a silver award through PCM.
The Addy Awards recognize exceptional advertising in print, broadcast, out-of-home, Internet and public service advertising. A scoring process is in place, where a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry, determining the selection of the most creative entries in each category. A gold Addy is recognition of creative excellence of the highest level and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category. Entries that are also considered outstanding and worthy of recognition receive a silver Addy. The number of awards given in each category is determined by the judges, based on the relative quality of work in that category.
The Brandon Agency has been the driving force behind many well-known brands, including Southern Tide, CresCom Bank, Santee Cooper, HTC, Brittain Resort Management and Beaufort, S.C., developing and delivering tangible results that positively impact business.
