–Baltimore’s top agency wins 31 awards for outstanding work–

BALTIMORE (April 5, 2013) — Apparently Planit was listening to mama when she said knock you out. The Baltimore-based integrated marketing firm knocked it out of the park, taking home 31 awards at the 39th Annual American Advertising Federation of Baltimore ADDY® awards, held last night, Thursday, April 4, 2013. The ADDY awards are an annual celebration of the Baltimore community’s talented advertising communications professionals.

Highlights of the 31 awards won by Planit, by far the majority winner of the night, include seven Gold ADDYs and five Silver ADDYs for their work on the Maryland State Fair “11 Best Days of Summer” campaign and five Gold ADDYs for the “Lead Isn’t Pretty” campaign for the Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg. Other awards the agency received were for work for clients including Island Def Jam, New Horizons, WTMD and Tessemae’s All Natural.

“The fact that our team took home 31 out of the total 107 awards is really not a surprise—it’s a testament to the caliber of work we develop on behalf of our clients day after day,” said Matt Doud, president of Planit. “As top talent continues to flock to the Baltimore area spurring healthy competition among agencies, this win is even sweeter. To me, this just reinforces what I already knew my team is capable of.”

Planit joined 41 other agencies at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore on Thursday for the 39th Annual American Advertising Federation of Baltimore awards showcase, which incorporates a different theme each year just as imaginative as the individuals in attendance. This year an old-school hip-hop theme took center stage, with Planiteers dressing the part in velour track suits, gold chains and high-tops. To see photos, click here.
