Herrmann Advertising | Branding | Technology was honored with five wins in this year’s International Academy of Visual Arts’ Communicator Awards. The Annapolis agency’s work for Cardinal Financial Corporation, Kramer Levin, Historic Annapolis and the Howard County Health Department, along with Herrmann’s own website redesign, competed with more than 6,000 entries from across the U.S. and the world.
In the “Print – Annual Report” category, judges selected Cardinal Financial Corporation’s 2015 annual report for the highest “Award of Excellence” honor. Based in McLean, Virginia, Cardinal is a longtime Herrmann client. This is the second time the bank’s annual report has won a gold-level Communicator Award.
In addition, four “Award of Distinction” honors were presented to Herrmann. Silver awards for website design were presented for the agency’s work on the Historic Annapolis site as well as for its own new www.herrmann.com site. Both major site redesigns incorporated bold “hero image” graphics, the HerrmannEasyEdit content management system and mobile-friendly responsive design. In the “Print Advertising – Poster” category, Howard County Health Department’s 2015 breastfeeding campaign was selected as a silver winner. New York law firm Kramer Levin’s “Defining Matters” 2015 annual report picked up silver in the “Print – Annual Report” competition.
