Innis Maggiore Wins 10 Awards in the National "American Corporate Identity" Competition

Canton-based Advertising/PR Firm One of Only Four Ohio Agencies Recognized

CANTON, Ohio (March 29, 2007) - Ten pieces of branding artwork created by Innis Maggiore won honors in the 23rd annual American Corporate Identity competition. Innis Maggiore, the nation's leading agency in the practice of positioning, was one of only four agencies from Ohio to win awards in this national competition.

Branded material created for Innis Maggiore?s clients will again be featured next to nationally recognized consumer and business-to-business brands in the final hard-bound presentation. American Corporate Identity is an annual design competition judged by a panel in 14 categories. Winning submissions are included in the Harper Collins full-color, hardbound, 320-page book "American Corporate Identity 2008," which will be available nationwide at major book retailers and online.

Hundreds of agencies and design studios submit thousands of entries seeking recognition and inclusion in the annual. Innis Maggiore's creative work was also featured in the 2004 edition. "As designers we're always looking for inspiration," said Jeff Monter, vice president creative. "Every year we use ACI to answer the question: are we keeping up? The fact that we're included in the new edition tells us that we're not just keeping up, we're helping to lead the way."

"From a positioning perspective the right visual branding is crucial," said Lorraine Kessler, vice president client services, "because a corporate identity is the most obvious expression of an organization's position." Awards were given to Innis Maggiore for Signage/Environmental Graphics, Stationery Design, Corporate Identity Manuals and Trademark/Logo Design for eight different clients, including:

  • GuideStone Financial Resources for Corporate Identity Materials 
  • Aurum Wealth Management forStationery Design and Trademark/Logo Design
