December 16, 2009
Grand Rapids, MI – Baudville, a leading provider in day‐to‐day recognition and award solutions for the workplace, has recently been announced a finalist for the John Caples International Awards. The awards honor the best in direct and interactive marketing from around the world.
Baudville is one of eight finalists in the agency self-promotion category, which judges any media designed to promote or sell the services of an agency. Baudville’s campaign, entitled the place for daily recognition, launched in June 2009 to promote its new brand identity and over 200 new products. The campaign included direct mail elements, catalog, email, and web videos.
To become a finalist, Baudville’s entry was reviewed and discussed by a panel of over 70 international executive creative directors during two rounds of judging. Finalists were scored on concept, copy, and art direction. Judging took place over two days in November.
“We are very excited to be a part of the elite group of marketers that the Caples Awards honors,” said Brad Darooge, Baudville President and CEO. “On a personal level, I am extremely proud of our team for all the hard work, dedication, and creativity that went into making this campaign such a success. It’s great to see our little shop here in West Michigan mentioned with some of the largest advertising agencies in the world.”
Winners from each of the categories will be announced at the Caples 32 annual awards event March 25 in New York City.
