Project selected as one of 101 winning designs from top agencies.
[Cincinnati]—Make-A- Wish Gift, a project developed by Eleven Peppers Studios, was chosen as a Merit winner in the most recent HOW Promotion & Marketing Design Awards. This highly selective and well-regarded competition sponsored by HOW magazine recognizes outstanding creative work produced by individuals and creative agencies from around the world.
HOW’s editorial and design team, along with Breakaway’s Chief Creative Officer Scott Maney, Designlore’s Laurie Churchman, and The Davis Group’s Principal Douglas Davis, evaluated nearly 1,000 entries and selected winning projects that demonstrated an ideal mix of concept, strategy and execution. Entries were judged by type of work (e.g., Designer Promotions, Client Promotions, Personal Promotions) and also by how effectively the design achieved the stated business goals.
Every year the Eleven Peppers Studios team sends a holiday gift in December to say thank you to their clients, mentors and supporters. In 2015, they decided that their gift would be individual donations made to the Make-A- Wish Foundation in the names of their clients, supporters and mentors. To commemorate the donation, they wanted to reinforce the beauty of wishing, and collaborated with a local vendor to create hand-poured soy candles. The candles were specially designed to have three wicks, each wick symbolizing a word in the Make-A- Wish Foundation mission statement—hope, strength and joy. The overall theme is celestial, and the candle wrap features hand-drawn illustrations of the wishes of actual Make-A- Wish children, rotating around the candle. As a hidden surprise, the illustrations have been punched with tiny holes that reveal constellations when the candle is illuminated.
