Northern Virginia Firm Recognized for Continued Creative Excellence

Vizual, Inc., an integrated creative services firm, was awarded eight 2016 Hermes Creative Awards that honor excellence in marketing, design, and communications. Included in the winning projects are two platinum winners, three gold winners and three honorable mentions. The receipt of a platinum or gold award is an incredible achievement that is symbolized by a stunning statuette of Hermes, the ancient Greek Messenger.

The annual Hermes Creative Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. The international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production, web, and freelance professionals. The Association oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards for excellence.

“It is an honor to be recognized by such a prestigious competition for work on behalf of our clients,” says Jeff Lupisella, Principal at Vizual, Inc. “It is always rewarding to present our clients with these statuettes and is a true testament to the collaborative partnership that we strive to have with each of them. We thank our clients for allowing us the opportunity to work with them and we congratulate all of them as well on this achievement.”

The platinum award is the most prestigious prize, awarded to entries that were outstanding in terms of quality, creativity, and resourcefulness. Entries that were above the industry norms and standards received the platinum and gold awards, and Honorable Mention certificates were given to those entries that met the judges’ expectations. The winners were:
