London, Ontario-based Marketing Strategies & Solutions has again been recognized for excellence in graphic communications by the international Summit Creative Awards.
The firm was awarded a Silver standing in the Specialties category for a calendar created for John Zubick Limited, a London, Ontario recycling operation.
The project is the most recent in a popular series the agency has undertake for several years for the recycling operation.
The large format wall calendar features artistic interpretations of scrap metal and sculptures at Zubick’s recycling yard on Clarke Road in London, while still serving as a useful planning tool.
“We are very pleased to be recognized for maintaining the high standards that we established for this project,” said Robert Adeland, president and founder of Marketing Strategies & Solutions.
The Summit competition, now in its 24th year, celebrates creative achievement by small and medium-sized advertising agencies and studios. The 2018 award program drew more than 5,000 entries from a record-setting 26 countries. The Zubick calendar that Marketing Strategies & Solutions entered to the competition last year was singled out for one of four coveted Judges Choice awards, a special designation for exceptional work, drawn from all categories.
Adeland also expressed thanks to John Zubick Limited for supporting his team’s creative vision.
“We’ve enjoyed an excellent partnership with the Zubick family for many years. The confidence they always show in our staff and in our ideas is always gratifying. Creating breakthrough work in commercial design always requires a leap of trust. The ultimate reward for this collaboration is the appreciation and goodwill that the calendar attracts from Zubicks’ customers every year.”
