Creative awards

We aren't glory hounds. We really aren't. Occasionally, though, a client will urge us to submit our work to an award panel for judging. Following are a few such awards our clients and Cox Marketing Group have been honored with:

2017 Summit International Marketing Effectiveness Creative Award - Logo Design - CortControl, LLC

Working with nutraceutical formulator CortControl along with Linden Design, we were honored as a silver winner for our reimagining of CortControl's logo and corporate identity.

We developed a clean, descrptive look to represent the three primary chemistries central to CortControl's Glutrasol family of product formulations.

Entries were judged on "their ability to change, influence or reinforce an audience's knowledge, attitudes, or beliefs." Truly an international competition, submissions came in from thirteen countries with only 6% of entries receiving top honors.

 2010 Summit International Creative Award - Catalog - SIS Development

Together with Corvallis-based SIS Development, we were a bronze winner for our work on SIS Development's catalog flat.  This piece was used to generate interest for their offerings at industry tradeshows with the objective of securing meetings to discuss potential development engagements with the firm.

Using seaonally relavent football references (the shows were in the Fall), the piece led with "Because development is a team sport...." and discussed how teaming with SIS to realize development game plans was a winning strategy.

This project was really rewarding because the client had such a distinct list of value propositions for us to communicate that it made our job easy.  SIS was also very open to the range of creative approaches we presented.

Summit received thousands of entries from over 24 countries for this year's honors.


2007 Summit International Creative Award - B2B Print Materials - Business Objects

Portland-based Steve Mitchell Design joined with Cox Marketing and San Jose-based Business Objects, a global business intelligence software company.

Business Objects' savvy marketing team, pulled in a combination of proven vendors to assist with this ambitious direct marketing campaign. The team came up with an enticing, 4-phase mailing campaign focusing on a very targeted healthcare audience. Memorable packaging that was just plain too fun not to open and engaging enclosures lead respondents to take advantage of product-related offers.

Intelemark, based in Phoenix, AZ followed with telemarketing calls which provided an added lift to response numbers with the campaign rounding out at over a 4% response rate.


2006 Summit International Creative Award - B2B Print Materials - GTS Services

This time, GTS Services, a Portland-based glass business software company's project was honored.

GTS is one of our favorite customers and as any agency knows, the creative end result is always a collaboration of agency ideas overlaid with client direction.

This 3-phase dimensional campaign sent increasingly compelling product-related offers coupled with playful, arresting industry-related giveaways. These communications were both relevant and visually memorable. The result? With a 6% hit rate and $1.5 million in pipeline revenue forecasted for GTS!
