Wausau-based Creative Communication & Design, Inc. has been awarded two silver International Davey Awards for work in 2016, according to a company news release.

“Daveys” are coveted as one of the most prestigious awards given to small agencies worldwide.

The Davey Awards are sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms. Award categories include Advertising & Marketing, Design, Websites, Social, Mobile and Video.

Creative earned silver awards for two entries in two categories: a footwear catalog (Print Collateral-Brochure for Weinbrenner Shoe Co.), and a craft beer sales kit (Promotional-Sales Kit/Folder for Mid-Wisconsin Beverage). A sampling of the entries and the awards can be viewed on the Creative Facebook page. Information on the Davey Awards themselves can be found at www.DaveyAwards.com.

Asked what the two awards meant to the company, Creative Director Shad Opper said, “It’s great to be recognized for creativity and hard work, especially out of a pool of some 4,000 entries. It’s a testament to the quality and effectiveness of the work our team produces.”

“Both of these pieces represent the power of our immersion process—a deep understanding of our clients, their offerings, their markets, and the vehicles for delivering their brands and messages,” added Cindy Baumann, principal.

“The Daveys are all about small agencies with big ideas producing amazing work,” said Chris Liedtke, principal.  “This confirms to our clients that we deliver the best.”
