At the end of 2016, we gathered some of our work from the year and prepared entries for the American Advertising Awards in OKC (the ADDYs). These are put on by the OKC Advertising Club, and there are district competitions held all across the nation to recognize excellence in advertising. We're very proud of our work and decided to bite the bullet on entry fees (reasonable, but tough for any penny-pinching small business) and enter for the first time.
And it paid off!
We are excited to share that we won two ADDY awards – a gold and a bronze – both for logo designs. Our bronze ADDY went to the logo we created for Angie Collier Photography, and our gold winner happens to be our very own logo. As a company that specializes in branding, we couldn't be happier.
We celebrated on Saturday night at the ADDYs gala with our client and soul sister, Angie, and our friends in the design community. And now we want to celebrate with you. Check out our instagram (@toastoklahoma) to see how you can enter for a shot to win a one pound box of Apple Tree Chocolate (yes, we're bribing you to share our good news far and wide, and we aren't ashamed about it).
A big thank you to all of our friends who have supported us along the way and who help us share this news! If Year One is any indication, we're here to stay.
