It’s always nice to receive awards. Recognition for the work we do is good for the clients, good for the ego, good for morale.
In the past month, we have received quite a bit of positive recognition: W3 Awards for NYA and Briggs websites, a Gold Broderson for the Gifford’s Ice Cream site, and the selection of several examples of our brand identity work for an AIGA Annual Exhibit in Portland. Kudos!
The real thrill, though, is less about that shiny heavy (sometimes expensive, sometimes ugly) trophy and more about the road that got us here.
Every day for almost 25 years we’ve been honing our craft, and every day we do our best to turn out exceptional, brand-focused work. So, here’s what I recognize: The true prize is just the simple act of coming to work at a job I love. I have the privilege of working with exceptional clients who trust us (and challenge us) to be brilliant and with a team that regularly renews that trust.
The rest is icing on the cake.
