Surreal. That is how it felt when we had the privilege of winning six awards in the 42nd Annual Baltimore American Advertising Awards (formerly ADDYs). It was especially surreal because we won our first GOLD (three of them!) We had a great group of peppers (eleven coincidentally) at Table 27 for the awards ceremony at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, a perfect venue for the occasion. It was humbling to be surrounded by so many established, award-winning advertising firms in the Baltimore area. The theme of this year’s event was Baltimore Hon’ and it couldn’t have felt more authentic and close-to-home, with beautiful graphics and swag designed by Harvey Agency, topped off with a classic signature drink, the Orange Crush. There were even mini bags of Berger cookies… yum!
As a small, close-knit family of creatives, our mission has always been to do great work with great people. It is an honor to be recognized for our hard work, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. The winning work throughout the awards ceremony was nothing short of extraordinary and inspiring. The amount of talent in Baltimore is mind-blowing. It motivates us to continue doing what we do best.
So, what’s next? Well, our entries will be forwarded to the district competition where we will compete against winners from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Wish us luck!
Thank you to all of the peppers, friends and family that have supported and believed in us. We did it! And, a special congratulations to ALL the winners! Creativity is alive and well in Bal-mer Hon’!
