Some timely housewarming items arrived at Axiom's new residence at 1702 Washington Ave.
Axiom collected five ADDY Awards and 12 Citations of Excellence at AAF-Houston's 50th annual awards ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston on Saturday night.
The centerpiece was a multi-component, multimedia presentation for Cameron that combined its nine divisions into one voice under the theme "Discover Cameron." The campaign was the main magnet for Axiom, taking a Silver Addy in the B-to-B Regional/National Campaign category, and both Gold and Silver ADDYs in the Illustration Campaign category.
Axiom also won Gold for its catalog showcasing the artwork of Mary McCleary, Art League Houston's 2011 Texas Artist of the Year; and a Silver for Hope Stone's Annual Fund Invitation.
Axiom, which received 17 nominations heading into Saturday's ceremony, earned two Citations of Excellence for its campaign on Fire Station No. 6, the company's new home after the landmark building was purchased by Tom Hair the previous decade and underwent a successful restoration. AAF-Houston also issued Citations of Excellence for Axiom's work on behalf of Art League Houston (two), INOVA Geophysical, NEOS, NiSource (two), Reliance Aluminum & Steel, Vortex Ventures and Yogi University.
The event, whose theme was "MADFEST" in honor of the hit AMC television show "Mad Men," was also a celebration of the advertising club's 100th anniversary. During the ceremony, highlights were shown of memorable campaigns past such as the Shell Answer Man. Plus, AAF-Houston honored Jay Hagins (Only In Houston Award) and Locke Bryan (AAF Silver Medal) for their esteemed records of community service and industry achievement.
