From best rebrand to outstanding corporate identity and interactive design, Siegel+Gale clients received 31 awards from some of the industry's most reputable branding competitions, including the 365: AIGA Annual Design Competition, E-Healthcare Leadership Awards, Graphic Design China Awards, Graphis Branding 5, International Davey Awards, Rebrand 100, Summit International Awards, W3 Awards, Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate and the Web Marketing Association.
"It is always exciting when our clients are recognized for demonstrating their commitment to clear and innovative strategic branding programs," said Sven Seger, global creative director.
"To have helped such a myriad of clients-from healthcare to financial services, retail and non-profit-illuminate their brands traditionally and digitally is a testament not only to the dedicated teams at Siegel+Gale, but also to the clients who entrust us with their brands everyday."
The launch of Siegel+Gale's Dynamic Media practice at the end of 2008 enhanced the firm's ability to exhibit brands across all touch points including digital and mobile platforms. Interactive work for clients like Baylor Health, Children's Hospital Los Angeles: Hope Portal, Genworth Financial, and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library, which picked up seven awards in 2009, demonstrate Siegel+Gale's dedication to the clear expression of brands both on-and-offline.
"It's a great honor to ensure our clients can be heard in a crowd of global brands," commented Thomas Mueller, global director, dynamic media. "When our interactive clients are recognized, it's a perfect reminder of how simplicity in digital strategy and design allows a brand to speak volumes."
In addition to the notable "Best of Awards" from Rebrand 100, AIGA, and the Web Marketing Association, Siegel+Gale clients also accepted honors in new award-winning categories. Dollie & Me by Kahn Lucas received the Innovator Award for Consumer Product Website from the Summit International Awards and RMJM won the Leader Award for Corporate Image Website.
Advertising Age also recognized Siegel+Gale as No. 5 in its ranking of the Top U.S. Agencies in All Disciplines. Healthcare client Pfizer also received recognition from Brand New, which named it the No. 5 best identity of 2009 after Siegel+Gale's refresh of the corporate identity.
