BRIGHT+CO receives honors from the American Advertising Federation with 12 awards for outstanding creative advertising

BRIGHTCO-@-AAF-Awards-2020Greenville, S.C. (March 10, 2020) – BRIGHT+CO Marketing was honored with twelve American Advertising Awards for excellence within the Greenville advertising market. Recognized as one of the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competitions, the local AAAwards are the first of a three-tiered, national competition. This year, BRIGHT+CO was honored with ten silver and two gold awards for exceptional art direction and creative design work on behalf of the Greenville Drive and Renewable Water Resources (ReWa).

"It’s important that creativity be encouraged and recognized in any aspect of business, and we’re grateful to the AAF, the Greenville Drive and ReWa for allowing our agency to do some great work, and to be recognized for it in such a big way," said BRIGHT+CO partner and chief creative officer Andy Mendelsohn.

BRIGHT+CO’s unique model has garnered nationwide attention from a variety of clients, big and small, who are attracted to the agency’s agility that allows them to provide exceptional work, a team of tenured professionals and fair prices. With a surge of recent growth, BRIGHT+CO has won several notable clients, including Michelin, Uniroyal, Milliken, Uinta Brewing, Wastequip, Toter and Lowes Foods. The agency’s AAAward wins further demonstrate BRIGHT+CO’s growing reputation as one of the fastest growing agencies.

“It’s not really about the awards for us. It’s about the results,” said BRIGHT+CO founder and chief executive officer Jennifer Sutton. “But something amazing seems to happen when we combine solid strategy and creativity.”

BRIGHT+CO will move into the second tier of competition where local AAAward winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions, aiming for a spot in the third tier on the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.
