Hey, we won an award for things we do! Shameless plugging time!
Jeff, Vicki and I went to the Richmond Show Friday night for hours devours and an awards ceremony honoring Virginia advertising in broadcast, Web, print, and radio. It was an awesome collection of talent producing a lot of your favorite commercials and sites. I was about to Twitter on the work feed about one of the commercials that just played and Jeff smacked me on the arm and say “Hey! That’s us!”
Very positive reaction from the crowd, and what I’m sure is a ridiculous photo of me posing with the awards, and I’m on the way back to our seats. It was a fairly surreal experience to watch the commercial play in front of that room and market that probably hadn’t seen the spot before. Good reaction overall, I was more upbeat that the group of creatives there reacted warmly more than just about anything else.
I texted off a couple of very swear-laden texts about the event to the rest of the class and my wife, talked to a few people on the way out, and we hit the road.
We’re stoked for the recognition. Here’s the commercial once again http://vimeo.com/14561224
Here’s the press release:
