2019 Brings Imaj Associates Three Prominent International Awards
Richmond, RI (December 18, 2019)
Imaj Associates, Inc. is proud to have their work recognized by three prestigious international awards in 2019. For exceptional branding and creative work, they were recently awarded a Gold Hermes Creative Award and a Rose Gold Muse Creative Award. They were also awarded a Videographer Award of Distinction for their video/film work. The Imaj team poured their hearts into the three award-winning projects, all of which demonstrate the firm’s unique ability to bring powerful perspective to diverse and multi-faceted subjects.
Evaluating over 13,000 entries worldwide, the Muse Creative Awards values professionals whose inspiration flows through every aspect of their work and honors those demonstrating a deep knowledge and understanding of their craft. This year, the award’s theme, “Evolve Forward,” sought to shine light specifically on those entries whose work envisions a brilliant future. Imaj won the prestigious Rose Gold award for the branding of Vermont’s Winooski School District. The brand strategy, logo design, language, colors and tagline, “We are the future,” encapsulate the school’s connection to their environment, their dedication to their diverse students, and hope for the future.
Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media, while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communications professionals. Imaj was awarded a Gold Hermes for the logo design of Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns, along with development of the tagline, “Distinctive Communities, Powerful Alliance.” The brand portrays their strength due to an inclusive membership of every city and town in the state, and the diverse environments of Rhode Island.
One of the oldest and most respected awards in the industry, the Videographer Awards commemorate the achievements of those professionals who not only uphold but also exceed industry standards in film and video. Imaj was awarded the second-place Award of Distinction for their filming and production of the Winooski Schools Bond Referendum video. Having worked with the Winooski, VT school district many times before, the vote to acquire much-needed funding for repairs to the school is a cause close to the hearts of everyone on the Imaj team – and all were thrilled when the community voted yes to fund the improvements!
