P2R Associates Continues Award-Winning Ways with Platinum and Gold Hermes Creative Awards for Web Design

LIVONIA, Mich., April 29, 2009 – P2R Associates today announced it has received two prestigious Hermes Creative Awards sponsored by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals for its creative web design.  These latest awards make a total of 11 major professional awards P2R has won for its work this year.

The Hermes Awards are presented in recognition of outstanding achievement by marketing and communications professionals.  This year more than 3,700 entries came from throughout the U.S. and abroad.  P2R won both awards for its redesigned web site – www.p2rassociates.com

“We are very honored to be recognized by these significant awards for our creative and brand identity work,” said Gordon Cole, president, P2R Associates.  “These awards underscore the creative talent of our team members and the excellence we work hard to provide our clients everyday.”  This year’s P2R winning entries include:

Platinum Award

  • Electronic Media – Web Site Overall “Perception to Reality”

Gold Award

  • Design – Web Site Overall “Perception to Reality”

The Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition that honors the messengers and creators of traditional and emerging media.  Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers.  Winners were selected from over 140 categories in twelve forms of media and communication efforts – advertising, publications, marketing collateral/branding, design, photography, writing, integrated marketing, public relations/communications, media relations, electronic media, video and audio.

In developing the web site, a cross-functional P2R team collaborated to capture and showcase the company’s integrated brand communications strength, highly-successful track record and numerous professional accomplishments into a powerful and highly-effective communications platform.  Led by Scott K. Russell, director account services and business development, P2R Associates, the team had a clear vision from start to finish.

“We deliberately kept the design simple and clean, while keeping the feel intuitive and making the functionality very fast and efficient,” Russell said.  “For us, the approach was our proof-of-concept that even in our digital age; clarity, efficiency and effective communications can trump a higher end approach.”

These latest awards are in addition to one Automotive Public Relations Council – Excellence in Automotive PR Award and eight MarCom Awards presented to P2R earlier this year for a range of integrated strategic public relations and marketing communications programs, crisis communication strategies and print and broadcast publicity achievements.

“P2R is a small agency that produces big results and these awards make that point,” said Russell.  “Our trademarked eProcessTM results in break-through communications that are aligned with business objectives and focused on sustaining success,” he added.  “We build on a solid foundation – efficiently and with the right tools. I’m really proud of the work our team has done.”
