Our office gets shinier every season! Illumine8 Marketing & PR won a 2018 Communicator Award of Distinction.
We submitted a content marketing offer for our client, Cochran & Mann, a commercial painting company in Frederick, Maryland, called Guide To Hiring A Commercial Painting Contractor.
Written by Kelly Jacobson and designed by Erik Pitzer, the submission was for Content Marketing eBooks under the Digital category and Online Advertising & Marketing subcategory.
“It's an absolute honor to be recognized by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA),” Christina May, CMO and founder of Illumine8, said.
“This international award wouldn't have been possible without the dedication of our amazing client and staff. We're excited to share another award with Cochran & Mann.”
Our win in "the largest and most competitive awards program" comes out of entries from top advertising and interactive "agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms, and public relations firms a cross the globe," according to The Communicator Awards press release.
"We are extremely proud to recognize the work received for the 24th Annual Communicator Awards," said Derek Howard, director of the AIVA. "This year’s class of entries embodies the ever-evolving marketing and communications industry."
