As 2012 comes to a close we’re celebrating another outstanding year for Visceral and all of our clients and friends. As we say at Visceral, we look for work that makes the world a better place tomorrow than it is today – and this past year, we’ve made great strides in realizing this vision.
We’re thrilled when our efforts lead to a successful, timely product launch and a happy client. But when, occasionally, those efforts are also acknowledged by industry awards organizations, we’re beyond ecstatic. Not merely because we like the kudos (we’ll admit it, we do) but because this recognition allows us to reach more people out there in the world who are doing incredible things and just need a little help.
The following list contains the recognition we received for our work with the Retail Energy Supply Association and Arabella Advisors, honoring our efforts in logo design and website design and development.
RESA is a trade association representing 22 retail energy suppliers who advocate for competition in retail electricity and natural gas markets. RESA works on a national and state-by-state basis to promote pro-competition policies for residential, commercial, and industrial energy consumers.
The IMA Best in Class Award was a result of our new partnership with Marcacci Communications in Washington, D.C.
