Can we get a Hermes high five?!

We are happy to announce that Anda Creative received two 2017 Hermes Creative Awards for two recent projects:

Gold Winner: CASE Europe Annual Conference Branding

We collaborated with London-based CASE Europe to design and develop branding and collateral for the 2016 CASE Europe Annual Conference (CEAC). The event took place this past summer and preparation included numerous projects: logo, magazine advertisements, brochure, programme, prospectus, presentations, signage, and way-finding systems.

The event took place in Brussels, Belgium, so the goal was to create global appeal while emphasizing the central location and easy access within Europe.

Platinum Winner: Deployed Resources Large-Scale Camp Animation

We recently teamed-up with Rome, NY-based Deployed Resources to create a series of animations promoting their products and services. The award-winning 3D animation flies through a Large-Scale Camp with a fully rendered background scene and figures. It provides product details that are typically very difficult or impossible to capture using traditional photographic techniques.


Now the awards will rest atop our display shelf. Well, as soon as Tim and Corey stop walking around with them – posing for photos and signing autographs.

Ross-CASE Infographic and Report Design

Ross-CASE_Report_infographic_spread_retina

We recently teamed up with CASE Europe to design the Ross-CASE Trends in Philanthropic Support for Higher Education infographic, as well as the full 2017 report Giving to Excellence: Generating Philantropic Support for UK Higher Education.

The CASE Europe organization has been successfully improving donations from year to year, and has now reached a big milestone by surpassing £1bn for the first time!

Ross-CASE_Report_infographic_retina

This is the second year in a row that we’ve designed the full Ross-CASE infographics and reports. We start by visualizing the data in a clear and succinct way. Once the main infographic design is complete, we expand on those infographics for additional infographics, charts, and graphs within the full report. Our goal is to present the information in a visually pleasing way, which also aids in a better understanding of the content. We’re happy how the infographics and report design turned out and we’re proud to be involved with such a worthy effort to improve fundraising for higher education.

When One Barn Door Closes, the Same One Opens (because that’s how doors work), and a Mural is Painted

00_ABOVE-THE-TEXT_FullSizeRender_1

We recently expanded our office space and spent last week connecting the two units with a new barn door entrance, and painting a gigantic mural. It took 6 people (with lots of elbow grease) 4 days to complete the mural, but we finally wrapped it up last Friday night! Maybe we should have saved a bit of elbow grease for the door because it’s a little squeaky right now. We’ll deal with that later.
