San Luis Obispo marketing agency wins gold, silver and bronze for work.

San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2012

The Coastal California ADDY® Awards recognized Verdin, a San Luis Obispo-based marketing firm, with eight awards at their ceremony in March.

The ADDY® Award Gala on March 15 honored Verdin with a total of eight awards for creative excellence in the art of advertising, including a Gold ADDY® Award for its self-promotional Open House invitation following its rebranding last year. The marketing agency also received awards for the following programs and projects:

  • Verdin rebrand campaign
  • SLO Credit Union holiday card
  • Central Coast Partners for Water Quality “Stop Dirty Water” public service announcements
  • Old Juan's Cantina Advertising Campaign
  • City of San Luis Obispo Events Brochure
  • City of San Luis Obispo Utilities Department Fall Resource Newsletter
  • Santa Margarita Tavern logo.

“Last year was a busy year for us and our clients,” Verdin President Mary Verdin said. “We strive for excellence in everything we do and have so much fun creating the best work for our clients. It's rewarding in itself to come to the office every day and work with such a inspired, innovative team, but receiving this type of honor is like icing on the cake.”

The Coastal California ADDYs is an opportunity for local entrants to vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. It is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Because Verdin won the gold award for its Open House invitation, it can move on to the second tier and compete against winners in one of 14 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY® Awards competition.

A panel of judges evaluated and scored all creative dimensions of every entry, and then selected the most creative entries. The entries for this year's competition and attendance for the gala, where the winners were announced, increased by more than 120 percent since last year.
