Gard’s work gets a little year-end recognition

Gard’s work gets a little year-end recognition

As 2022 winds to a close, we're taking a quick minute to spotlight just a couple more of our projects that caught the industry's eye this year.

The 17th annual w3 Awards, which honor creative excellence on the web and the people behind it, liked two of our projects this year. The first, a website redesign for education company KnowFully Learning Group, landed a gold in their website redesign category.

We also took home a silver for our redesign of the Hamstreet & Associates website.

According to the w3 Awards, there were more than 3,000 entries for this year’s awards from advertising
agencies, PR firms, digital agencies, in-house creative professionals, web designers and graphic designers. The w3 is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of professionals from acclaimed media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms.

In addition to our w3 honors, a 30-second spot we did for the Oregon Forest Resources Institute took home a Silver Davey award. The awards, also sanctioned by AIVA, honor creative work from the best small shops around the world.

The spot, called “Big Things, Little Things,” is about how Oregon forests are replanted with three trees for every one harvested.

Kudos to the Gard teams – including our web and creative departments – who helped us bring home this hardware and produce top-notch work for our clients.
