Zunum Aero is a Washington-based Startup with an interesting business model that goes beyond creating new airplanes. I have been working with them for sometime now, but only recently have they gone public. Their name derives from the Mayan word for hummingbird. I created the logo and have been helping them with product illustrations. This is one of my favorite logos that I’ve designed. I think we will hear some great things from this company.

I am honored to receive two awards for my work on the call for entry campaign and video created last year. The campaign was developed for the Business Marketing Association of Colorado’s Gold Key Awards in 2015. This results-based awards was also a great opportunity to be recognized for the creative work that was done last year. The entries for the BMA Gold Key awards last year increased by 29%, attendance to the awards gala was record setting, up 21% over the previous year. It is unclear if this is a direct result of this campaign, however we did meet our objectives. The videos remain as some of the most viewed videos on the BMA YouTube channel.
The second award come from the Hermes Creative Awards one of the largest international design competitions. According to their press release, “Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals.” Only 22% of the nearly 6,000 entries receive the Gold award.
