Baltimore’s Top Agency Honored with Eight Wins

BALTIMORE (March 11, 2016)— Planit, Baltimore’s top agency, took home eight gold and silver awards last night at the Baltimore American Advertising Awards ceremony.

The annual awards competition, also known as the ADDYs, celebrates Baltimore’s most talented marketing communications professionals. Highlights of the eight gold and silver awards won by Planit include a national campaign and website design for Marriott Rewards and VISA, logo designs for Martin O’Malley’s 2016 presidential campaign and Maryland Auto Insurance, a microsite and a direct mail kit for Zuri® Premium Decking by Royal®, a website for Shady Grove Fertility, and a brochure for ArmadaCare.

“Whether we’re creating innovative campaigns for national brands or new brand identities for organizations right here in Baltimore, we continually break the mold with bold new ideas,” said Matt Doud, president of Planit. “Our agency is made up immensely talented and creative people with a fearless drive for excellence, and it’s rewarding to receive recognition again this year from the American Advertising Awards for the boundary-breaking work we do for our clients.”

This year the American Advertising Federation of Baltimore received more than 290 entries from agencies, production houses and in-house marketing teams in the Baltimore area. To ensure fair judging, four creative advertising professionals from outside of the Baltimore market reviewed each entry. The 42nd Annual Baltimore American Advertising Awards event was held at the Baltimore Museum of Industry on Thursday, March 10. This year’s theme celebrated all things Baltimore, elevating and embracing the unique aspects of the city, which was fitting for Planit, as the agency’s headquarters will move to a new, standalone office in South Baltimore late this spring.

Planit hosted a live-stream viewing of the sold-out event at Little Havana Restaurante y Cantina, where attendees who weren’t able to get tickets could get in on the action through a Periscope broadcast from the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
