A Williamsburg-based marketing firm was awarded with a trio of Summit International Awards for creative excellence.

Howell Creative Group received accolades at the 2015 Summit Creative Awards for work done on three projects over the past year: a business-t0-business marketing folder for Quarterpath at Williamsburg, a new website design for the Virginia Living Museum and a logo redesign for Surry County.

The Quarterpath at Williamsburg project earned the silver medal, while the Virginia Living Museum and Surry County projects earned bronze medals.

Submissions for the Summit Creative Awards are judged by an international panel based on four main criteria: strength of concept, quality of execution, ability to persuade and judges power points, which allowed judges to boost “exemplary” submissions.

With more than 5,000 total submissions spanning across 23 countries in this year’s Summit Creative Awards, Howell Creative Group continued its track record of success during the Summit Creative Awards by earning awards against other small to mid-sized marketing firms and agencies around the globe.

The group took home three awards – a silver and two bronze medals – during the 2014 competition and silver medals during the 2013 and 2012 competitions.

Kelsey Sanders, a senior account manager at Howell Creative Group, said the firm was honored to be recognized again for their work during the international competition.

“We don’t do our work to win awards, but it’s always nice to be recognized,” Sanders said. “Our main focus is getting results for our clients and making the best product for the clients.”
