HCK2 Partners Takes Home American Advertising Award
(DALLAS) February 29, 2016 – HCK2 Partners (HCK2), a Dallas-based marketing communications agency, was recently named an American Advertising Award (ADDY) winner by the Dallas American Advertising Foundation (AAF) for its creative environmental design work for the regional United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Dallas.
“It is an honor for our creative team to be recognized and awarded by the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition for their outstanding work,” said Heather Capps, president and CEO of HCK2. “We are thankful for our partnerships with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and VAI Architects to complete the job and produce such memorable interior design artwork.”
The agency received a silver award in the out-of-home and ambient media category for the unique indoor signage created for USPTO. The design of each sign incorporated original Texas patents featuring everything from animal shears, agriculture equipment to unique parts from a vacuum cleaner. The pieces are showcased on colorful, acrylic and dimensional pieces that perfectly coordinate with the colors and design of the office.
The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, receives more than 40,000 entries each year. In its 54th year, the Dallas AAF recognizes outstanding work across a wide range of advertising platforms. The complete list of 2016 winners can be viewed on the ADDY website.
