Nine Stamats’ clients are basking in the glow of awards this winter. The glow began in two CASE district competitions, gained strength in the first level of the American Advertising Awards, and picked up an extra sparkle through the Educational Advertising Awards from the Higher Education Marketing Report. That adds up to glitter on the local, regional, and national levels.

That Golden Glow at CASE

Two projects for Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) received gold awards from District VII of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE)—the “Experience HPUdigital experience and the “Not just an education—an adventure” student recruitment publication.

An admissions microsite for the University of South Carolina at Beaufort received an award of excellence in CASE District III.

Bringing Brands to Life

Brand creative for Truman State University was recognized with both a Gold ADDY® and a Judge’s Choice Award at the American Advertising Awards, Cedar Rapids/Iowa City chapter. Acknowledging the difficulty of higher ed marketing, judge Jenna Tietje, Senior Manager at Target Corporation, said:

“[Stamats] did a great job really laying out what the brand wanted to stand for, having a distinctive tone of voice, but then also bringing that to life through some interesting brand creative that really helped to differentiate them from the competitive set.”

Also receiving Gold ADDY® awards were Stamats’ “Recipes for Brand Success” drink coasters and the HPU Education | Adventure visit brochure. Silver ADDY® awards went to HPU Education | Adventure viewbook, HPU integrated recruitment campaign, Ramapo College Magazine editorial spread/feature, Ramapo College graduate studies billboards, Palm Beach Atlantic Universitybillboards, and the Hastings College institutional website. (And our sister company, Stamats Business Media, took home a Best of Category for their magazine for the interior design industry, Interiors & Sources.)

Even More Sparkle

In the Educational Advertising Awards, the prospectus (viewbook) for the Harvard Graduate School of Education received a gold award, a brochure for Flagler College received a merit award, and advertising for the College for Professional Studies at Regis University earned gold, silver, and bronze. In addition, gold, silver, bronze, and merit awards gathered around the projects mentioned in the paragraphs above, including a best of show for the Palm Beach Atlantic University billboards.
