Palm Desert, CA, Jan. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cord Media Company, a full-service agency specializing in creative services, media, integrated marketing and branding, is pleased to announce they have earned nine prestigious Davey Awards from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA).
Both The Living Desert’s integrated marketing campaign for the park’s “Zoorassic” show and Cord Media’s own promotional short reel highlighting clients and agency services, received top honors with gold Davey Awards.
Cord Media also garnered several silver awards for campaigns produced for clients in one of its specialties – the gaming industry – including Hollywood Park Casino and Tortoise Rock Casino, both in Southern California, as well as two St. Croix Casinos located in Wisconsin. Creative work for Hard Rock Energy Drink, owned by the Florida-based Seminole Tribe, and Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs in California also earned silver Daveys.
