by | Nov 19, 2018

The Barber Shop Marketing was honored with one gold and three silver awards for creative marketing campaigns and components by the International Davey Awards, the leading awards competition specifically for smaller agencies. The winners were announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. With 3,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards competition recognizes the finest creative work from the best small shops, firms, and companies in a fiercely competitive industry.

The Barber Shop Marketing creative team, led by David Adkins, is responsible for the innovative creative in the winning categories including:

  • Gold—Craft Categories Best Use of Humor for Zero Percent
  • Silver––Craft Categories Best Use of Humor for A/C Running
  • Silver—Promotional Posters for Wildflower Art & Music Festival Event Poster
  • Silver—Online Film and Video Trailers for Segfault

The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock—the sort of thing small agencies accomplish each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids”, who derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets.

We are proud to showcase those who utilize flawless execution, groundbreaking technology, and a fresh approach to the thought process to generate amazing content” noted Derek Howard, Executive Director of the AIVA. He added, “On behalf of the Davey Awards and our Academy, we want to applaud this year’s entrants for their dedication and commitment to their craft. We offer our congratulations once again to those selected as winners on this and future success.”
