The Art Directors Association of Iowa (ADAI) has been serving up fresh designs at their annual exhibition for an impressive 58 years. Last week, creative folks from across the state gathered to feast their eyes on the best design work from the past year. The end result did not disappoint.
Here at PM, we witnessed the sheer amount of work that went into the event since four of our own employees serve on the ADAI board. The biggest amount of work though, happened over the past year as designers spent days and days perfecting their creations.
Three elite judges from surrounding states (because no bias) put their heads together to decide whose work was the best-of-the-best. And as it turned out, Performance Marketing walked away with some bragging rights.
Performance Marketing received five Awards of Excellence and two Best of Category award. Here are the award-winning projects PM & Shift got to show off:
