RD Thomas Addy Award-Winning Design 2015

The year 2015 was an exciting one for us at RD Thomas. As an agency, we are always looking for new challenges–new problems to solve that involve each of us improving and developing different skills. This resulted in a compilation of fresh projects and creative abilities that made for some quite diverse additions to our portfolio. The Lubbock chapter of the American Advertising Federation seemed to agree; seventeen pieces of our work were deemed winners, which were announced at the Lubbock Advertising Awards ceremony, on February 20th. This includes nine gold and eight silver awards. Plus, we were honored to win Judges’ Choice and Best of Show in Broadcast. Check out the winners below, and click here to see more of our work.

RD Thomas Advertising Crate

There’s Nothing We Can’t Deliver Promo Crate RD Thomas
Gold Addy Winner

For years, our slogan has been “There’s really nothing we can’t deliver.” This year, we got the chance to bring the words to life with a promotional crate containing multiple RD Thomas materials. We custom built the lids to the crates, the six books were hand-sewn and die-cut and wrapped with bubble wrap. Everything in the crates was RD Thomas branded; the water, t-shirt, USB, buttons, pen, stress ball, etc. The finishing touch was a packing list attached to the outside of the crate, each individually signed by the RD Thomas employee that packed it.
