Sparkbox, under our parent company of FORGE, won a Judge's Choice, two gold, four silver, and two bronze Addy awards at the 2011 Hermes Award Show.

Sparkboxers single Windsored their ties and shined their dress shoes this weekend for the Hermes Awards. The award ceremony was held Saturday, February the 26 at the Masonic Temple in Dayton.

Our parent company, FORGE, was awarded:

Gold for Homefull Campaign
Gold and Judge's Choice for A Modern Eden campaign

The Homefull campaign was part of the work we completed for our 2010 FORGE Your Dot Org recipient. Part of the campaign was renaming them (they were originally called The Other Place) and narrowing the messaging to help with fundraising efforts.

A Modern Eden is the self-created brand based around a series of animal illustrations by our designer, Ryan Clark. We've developed products including screen printed posters, totes, iPhone apps, flashcards, and wall decals, along with a handy e-commerce website to sell the goods.

In addition to the gold Hermes, FORGE scored four silver and two bronze awards:

Silver for a Weenie Roast Poster made for RIS The Paper House
Silver for the Homefull website
Silver for Eat at FORGE
Silver for A Modern Eden website
Bronze for Artisan software demo video
Bronze for Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra brochure

Last year we won one gold, and this year we won two, so we're hoping next year we'll carry along with the exponential growth and win four gold awards!
