The evening of February 24 featured a light snowfall, but in the local marketing community, it will be better remembered instead for a flurry of trophies. The American Advertising Federation of Des Moines held its annual American Advertising Awards, or Addys, to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. It is the industry’s largest competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries in local AAF competitions each year.

Trilix is proud to be among those recognized at the Addys, earning a Gold and three Silver awards for our work in 2017. The greatest reward, however, is collaborating with our clients to create these award-winning campaigns. Trilix, in collaboration with our clients, won the following awards this year.

Iowa Wild

Gold: Film, Video & Sound

This year marked the Iowa Wild’s fifth anniversary. To commemorate five years of Iowa Wild hockey, we worked collaborated with the Wild team and staff to make a special introduction video for games, which showed off the community roots the team has developed since 2013 while energizing the home fans before puck drop. We gathered footage from games and community events to give meaning to the phrase, “Hockey lives here.” Make sure to arrive early to the next Wild game to see this pulse-pounding video.

Maxwell Apartments

Silver: Online & Interactive

We worked with Hubbell Apartment Living to create a sleek, modern website befitting their sleek, modern downtown development, Maxwell Apartments. The site shows off not only the considerable amenities offered to Maxwell residents, but also the surrounding neighborhood and the benefits of living in downtown Des Moines.

Mainframe Studios

Silver: Film, Video & Sound

Mainframe Studios, a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to provide permanent affordable workspace to artists of all disciplines, launched its first phase in 2017. With a creative community that already includes 65 artist studios, our video team found a wealth of stunning art to showcase. We worked with the Mainframe team to feature artists of diverse disciplines while telling Mainframe’s backstory in this launch video.

Trilix Demo Reel

Silver: Film, Video & Sound

After helping so many amazing clients tell their stories through video, we wanted to give that footage a second life with a spotlight on the power of visual storytelling. Our video team cut a demo reel to highlight the ways Trilix uses video to make a lasting impression.
