Not that we’re afraid to compete against the big boys of the advertising and creative world, but one of the things we love about the Davey Awards is that they focus on their namesake: the Davids. The boutiques. The scrappy teams that play above their weights.
The Davey Awards recognize the best small agencies doing big things within the creative industry. Awards are presented in categories including online film/video, design/print, online advertising, and marketing, giving small agencies a chance to compete against their peers for recognition (and hardware).
[ 2 one 5 ] Creative is proud to add to our Daveys collection following the 2018 awards, at which we took home four new Silvers.
In Sports Film & Video, [ 2 one 5 ] Creative was honored for our work with Relevent Sports/the International Champions Cup. In just a few weeks, [ 2 one 5 ] Creative banged out two full video suites to help ICC event’s organizers, Relevent Sports, raise awareness of and sell tickets for Philadelphia’s ICC match. Our cornerstone videos – “Nothing Friendly” and “The Champs are Here” – added a Philly feel to the match, interweaving the recent success of other local squads and establishing the 215 as the city of champs.
We were granted another Silver for Videography/Cinematography for our work with long time client ToughTested. In the award-winning video, we dove into the life of ToughTested Ambassador Bill Weaver, telling the stories of his work on the road and his love of music, and how they intertwine. Thanks to Bill Weaver (and his lovely wife, CarolAnn), we make room for this Davey Award on our shelf.
New client College Possible helped us bring home the bacon in the Charitable/Not-for-Profit category. Our task was to create a video illustrating the story of College Possible, and its real-life impact on participants and communities. Our film follows college-bound student Camellia Brown, and shows how College Possible literally changed her life. With the help of our film, College Possible took home a grant from the NRG Gives competition, and we were proud to contribute.
On the design side, we were honored for our work with the PJW Restaurant Group. Founded in 1983, the group has grown to include a diverse collection of hospitality brands – PJ Whelihan’s Pub and Restaurant, The Pour House, Treno Pizza Bar, The ChopHouse, and Central Taco and Tequila – and needed a mark to keep pace with its elevated industry reputation. The [ 2 one 5 ] Creative team executed a year-long initiative with PJWRG, ultimately delivering a strategic package including a fresh, modern, and versatile logo.
Said Lead Video & Motion Producer Jackie Papanier, “We really enjoyed working on each of these projects. The filming of both the International Champions Cup and College Possible gave us an incredible opportunity to showcase the grit, tenacity, and community of Philadelphia. We are particularly proud of our work on College Possible. We turned this project around in a week, allowing College Possible to win a grant that they’ve since put towards helping students continue their education. They inspired us – our team still talks about that project, and what it meant.”
The winners of the 2018 Davey Awards were selected by judges from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, whose members include the likes of Disney, Microsoft, and MTV.
We’ll go toe to toe against the Goliaths in video production, branding, and marketing any day of the week, but love that the Daveys shine a light on all the rad work being done by firms that sometimes have to throw an elbow or two to get noticed. Thanks to the Daveys, and our clients for making our honored work possible.
Let’s talk about how our team can create award-winning work for you.
