Rodgers Townsend, a St. Louis full-service advertising agency, was the most awarded agency at the St. Louis Advertising Club's ADDY Awards in February, including winning Best of Show for the Everclear MakeItYourOwn.com website.
In addition to the Best of Show, Rodgers Townsend received two Judges Citations for the AT&T Toggle Phone Case and the Rebel Yell distributor kit, and 10 gold ADDY Awards for work on AT&T, The Black Rep, Cutter Insect Repellent, Everclear, Rebel Yell, Lewis Osterweis and The Hartford. The agency won an additional 24 Silver ADDY Awards in various categories, by far the most of any agency.
"In one of the more hotly-contested shows in a long time, full of great creative, we're incredibly proud to have work recognized for nine of our clients-big and small, local and national," said Michael McCormick, Chief Creative Officer.
McCormick said the agency's dedication is what helped the Everclear website win the highest honors at the show. "Even our team's approach was on strategy for a site called MakeItYourOwn.com. Our guys cared for every word, crafted every cocktail, even shot every photo themselves. A true labor of love and a fitting way to reintroduce Everclear to the world."
