Blue Blaze Associates wins top Hermès awards
NEWARK – Blue Blaze Associates LLC, a full-service, women-owned marketing and design agency, received two Hermes Creative Awards 2021. The Delaware-based agency won a Platinum and Gold award, competing against more than 6,500 nominations submitted for the prestigious international competition. Each year, the judges assess the top creative industry entries for publications, branding materials, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing and communications programs.
The Platinum Award from Blue Blaze, Hermès’ highest distinction, rewards its multi-layered marketing services for Versogene, a green energy start-up with a bold mission to dramatically reduce industrial carbon emissions by profitably producing hydrogen from renewable sources. The work included rebranding with a new company name, designing a distinctive visual identity system, creating a new website with engaging content including custom illustrations to demonstrate key technical processes, as well as the development and implementation of a strategic marketing and communication plan.
The Gold Award was given for the rebranding work of Blue Blaze for BrightBloom Centers, a leading provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism and special needs serving Delaware, New Jersey and the surrounding area. Blue Blaze created a dynamic new brand that included a successful renaming process at BrightBloom Centers, developing their core messaging, revamping their website and creating a whole new set of marketing materials.
“We are extremely honored to receive the prestigious Hermes accolades and very proud of the work we have done and continue to do for these exceptional companies,” said Sandy Taccone, CEO of Blue Blaze Associates, in a statement. “Our mission is to go beyond our clients’ expectations and deliver results that will take them to the next level. These awards show that we are accomplishing this mission.
“Blue Blaze has completely transformed our business by renaming our name, appearance and accessibility to past, current and future families,” said Diliana Henry, founder of BrightBloom Centers, in a statement. “This transformation has opened the doors for us to expand our geographic footprint and meet the growing needs of the region. “
The Hermes Creative Awards are one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world. Winners vary in size, from individuals to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies. The contest is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals.
