J Drake Graphic Design – Gold Award Winner

Congratulations, based on the evaluations of our judges, you are an award recipient in the 2016 Hermes Creative Awards.

Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals.

Hermes Creative Awards is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (www.amcpros.com). The international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, digital media production and free-lance professionals. AMCP oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges and awards outstanding achievement and service to the profession.

As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations. Hermes entrants are not charged to enter work they produced pro bono. Over the past few years, AMCP’s Advisory Board has given out over $150,000 in grants to support philanthropic endeavors.

Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. There were about 6,000 entries from throughout the United States and many other countries in the Hermes Creative Awards 2016 competition.

Hermes’ prestigious Platinum Award is presented to those entries judged to be among the most outstanding in the competition. Platinum Winners are recognized for their excellence in terms of quality, creativity and resourcefulness. About 17 percent of the entries won this award.

The Gold Award is presented to those entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm. Approximately 22 percent of the entries received this award. Honorable Mention certificates are granted to those entries that meet the expectations of the judges. Approximately 11 percent were Honorable Mention winners.

Being a Platinum or Gold Winner is a tremendous achievement that is symbolized by the intricately detailed Hermes platinum and gold statuettes. The name Hermes (Greek messenger) and the idea for the statuette were chosen to represent our roles as the messengers and creators of marketing and communication materials and programs. Photos of the award can be found on our website at www.hermesawards.com.
