Grafik was the prime sponsor of the American Marketing Association’s (AMADC) Spring Mix Networking Event held at the Liaison Hotel last week week which sold out to the advertising and marketing community’s movers and shakers on both the agency and client sides. Lance Wain addressed a packed audience on the shifts and success stories in the D.C marketing world and then introduced the event’s keynote speaker, legendary advertising icon Chuck Porter, founder and co-chairman of Crispin Porter + Bogusky—the agency responsible for creating the advertising for global brands such as Burger King, Best Buy, Coke Zero, BMW Mini, and VW.
“Grafik has been a quiet leader in the D.C. market, steadfast and holding strong for 30 years. We have decided to take a very active role in leading the marketing community for our next 30 years and our commitment to the American Marketing Association and programming like this demonstrates the kind of brand evolution our company is undergoing,” says Wain. “We have a very exciting roster of events coming up that we are planning with the AMADC for the coming year. It is important that our clients and the community know that Grafik is at the forefront of marketing trends, research, and hot creative.”
In attendance at the event were some of Grafik’s key clients including Software AG, Convergent Wealth Advisors, and Travelex Global Business Payments. The next Grafik-sponsored AMADC event will be held in Fall 2010.
Not only is Grafik on center stage with relevant content, but the boutique, Alexandria firm collected its fair share of industry awards in the last year. From a spot in the prestigious 2010 Graphis Annual Reports Annual, to three distinctions in the AIGA 50, plus two ADDY’s, and three accolades from the Art Director’s Club of Metropolitan Washington—Grafik continues to be recognized for creative excellence.
