Liquified Creative Named Winner of Platinum and Gold MarCom Awards

November 25, 2020

Liquified Creative, an Annapolis-based branding and advertising agency, was recently awarded four 2020 MarCom Awards in an array of categories.

In the Pro Bono category, the agency received the highest honor, Platinum, for Annapolis Gives as well as a Gold MarCom for another campaign, Take Charge of Your Healthcare. The Annapolis Gives campaign was designed for supporting local small businesses and restaurants that were devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Take Charge of Your Healthcare was another integrated initiative aimed at bringing awareness at a county level to the importance of the Medical Order of Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) form on National Healthcare Decisions Day.

The agency received additional Gold honors in the Radio category for the Giant National Capital BBQ Battle Virtual Experience as well as the Direct Mail/Print category for the agency’s self-promo direct mail piece titled “Wish You Were Here”. Liquified also received Honorable Mentions for their client Annapolis Plastic Surgery’s corporate image video and the Classical Theater of Maryland’s logo.

The MarCom Awards recognize outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design, and production of marketing and communication materials and programs. Since its inception in 2004, MarCom has evolved into one of the largest, most-respected creative competitions in the world. Each year, about 6,000 print and digital entries are submitted from dozens of countries. Judges are professionals from within the industry who look for entries that exemplify a high standard of excellence and set the bar for others in the marketing, communications, and graphic design fields.

The awards Liquified Creative were bestowed reflect the exceptional dedication and success the agency has experienced throughout 2020. In a year that has provided tremendous obstacles, hard work and resilience prevail. Liquified’s Founding Partner and Creative Director, Shawn Noratel, was gracious for the recognition. “What we do isn’t only about winning awards,” he said. “It’s about willingness to face challenges head-on and developing creative integrated solutions that change the way people think and engage with our client’s brands on a daily basis.”
