Coal Creative Wins Big at the 2021 AVA Digital Awards

Woohoo! We are so excited to announce that we are the recipients of several 2021 AVA Digital Awards!

The AVA Digital Awards is an international competition that recognizes the talent and hard work of creative professionals responsible for the planning, concept, direction, design, and production of digital communication. In 2019, we walked away with three awards in two categories – an INCREDIBLE honor. This year, we are even more thrilled to be recognized in THREE different categories: Platinum, Gold, and Honorable Mentions!

In the Platinum category, we were awarded for our safety promo for the Young Professionals Awards (check it out here). “It was a fun throwback to the 80’s,” says Alex, our Production Manager. “We’ve filmed a few promos with Will Beekman before and he’s always a blast to work with. It was a nice bonus to see it up on the big screen at the drive-ins during the event.”

In the Gold category, we were honored for two projects, the first being a video our incredible video team created for  the Maxx Strength Airsled (watch it here). If you aren’t familiar with Maxx Strength, they specialize in creating fitness equipment designed to provide the absolute best user experience and to increase human performance.

Also in the Gold category, we received an award for our work on the Brier Moving Company website. Brier Moving Company is a fully licensed and insured moving company located in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Brier Moving specializes in full-service residential and commercial moves, as well as in-house moves and unloading and packing services. Our rockstar web team was tasked with “building everything from the ground up,” as Matt, our Lead Web Developer & Lead Designer puts it. Check out the Brier Moving website here to see what we did!

Last but not least, Coal Creative received awards in the Honorable Mentions category for two projects. These projects were done pro bono in collaboration with community members we hold near and dear to our hearts. The first project was a poster we designed for the KISS Theatre production of Journey of the Noble Gnarble. Our amazing Content Manager & Design Specialist Samantha worked alongside the KISS team to create the poster for the production, which was based on a popular children’s book. “I read the book and tried to base my illustrations on the original illustrator’s character designs to fit the style of the production,” Samantha shares. “It was so much fun to create and collaborate with the KISS team.” Click here to see the beautiful poster Samantha created!

The final Honorable Mention we received was for our work with Wilkes-Barre Mayor George C. Brown in creating a video promoting the 2020 Census. The goal of the video was to illustrate just how important it is to fill out your city’s census. In a city of over 40,000 people, filling out the census helps to determine how much federal aid is provided to repair public roads, improve parks and housing, determine the price of school lunches, and much more.

We would like to thank not only the AVA Digital Awards, but our community partners and Coal Creative team members as well. We look forward to diving into more exciting and inspiring projects in the year ahead!
