We hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful for so many things: great clients, lots of work, family, friends, health, and…our new awards!
We recently won a 2012 Davey Award and 2, 2012 Pixie Awards. The Davey was a Gold in the category of Online Film/Video. It was in recognition of the marketing video we produced for Kanex titled “Meet Sydnee.” The Pixies were a Gold and Platinum in the Motion Graphics category. The Gold was for a trade show video we produced for a marketing company, and the Platinum was for a brand video we produced for an entertainment company.
The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small firms, agencies and companies in the world. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small firms do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than big budgets. The Davey Awards is the leading awards competition specifically for smaller firms, where firms compete with their peers to win the recognition they deserve. Please visit www.daveyawards.com for more information.
The Davey Awards is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms. Please visit www.iavisarts.org for a full member list and more information.
“This year’s winners truly represent a smart, nimble approach to creativity and embody the quick thinking, resourceful nature that make small agencies so unique” noted Linda Day, Executive Director of the IAVA. She added, “On behalf of the entire International Academy of Visual Arts, I want to thank this year’s Davey Awards entrants and winners for sharing their amazing capabilities and talents, allowing us to once again highlight the best small firms worldwide.”
The Pixie Awards honors outstanding work in the areas of Motion Graphics, Effects, and Animation. Judging is done by professionals who have excelled in the moving pixel fields of animation, motion graphics and effects.
Lloyd Record, Digital Media Services at Lockheed Martin Space Systems says, “The American Pixel Academy Pixie Award sets a high standard in quality and innovation for animation and other motion graphic arts.” For more information on the Pixie Awards visit http://www.pixieawards.com/.

Being recognized for our work never gets old. It’s always something to celebrate and be thankful for!
