Two area advertising, marketing and business communication consulting firms recently received a special honor.
Fredricks Communications, West Fargo, and Advertising Marketing, Fargo, have earned a Silver 2009 Davey Award from the International Academy of Visual Arts (IAVA).
The award, in the "Promotional, Invitations/Cards" category, recognizes "Time Flies," an invitation that Fredricks Communications and Advertising Marketing developed for the Fargo Jet Center for its June 2008 open house. Contributors to the piece were Martin Fredricks, John Holland, Travis Kurtz and John Petersen.
The Davey Awards is an international creative competition focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms worldwide. It honors the "Davids" of creativity, smaller agencies and companies with annual billings or revenues below certain levels that "...derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets."
The 2009 competition featured more than 4,000 entries from around the world. Winners included firms from across the United States and countries such as Germany, Kuwait and Singapore. Winning entries were created for high-profile clients such as GE, Walt Disney, Cracker Barrel and Red Bull.
