VI Marketing and Branding will be announced and featured as a "Typography in Motion" category winner in the Communication Arts Magazine's 5th annual typography competition.
VI's award winning work was produced for the OKC Ad Club for the 48th Annual American Advertising Awards (2014 ADDY Awards), and was selected by Communication Arts Magazine as a winner among 1,811 total worldwide entries. The theme of the 2014 ADDY Awards was "White Space," and while VI Marketing and Branding designed and concepted all the pieces to the evening (posters, programs, banners, etc) it was the ADDY's kick-off video that would put all the creative into motion - and ultimately be the Typography in Motion category winner for the magazine's 2015 January edition.
For all designers, art directors, design firms, corporate design departments, agencies, illustrators and photographers - Communication Arts Magazine is the place to be seen and featured.
