Rizco was recognized with several awards at NJ Ad Club’s 49th Annual Jersey Awards, including first place for the 2016 Breyer Holiday Catalog.
This year’s NJ Ad Club awards dinner and ceremony was held on June 7, 2017 at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ. Over 350 people from across New Jersey came together to honor creative excellence in advertising and marketing across all disciplines throughout the state.
Rizco’s youngest designer, Maggie Nagle, was responsible for the layout and design of the award-winning catalog. This was her first awards night event and her first win with the company. “Attending my first NJ Ad Club awards night was an amazing experience,” said Nagle. “There were so many talented and inspiring people under one roof. I am grateful for the opportunity to not only be amongst the competition, but to be part of the team that earned a top honor.”
“As the newest member of the Rizco family, Maggie has embraced every new challenge that has come her way,” said Rizco President & Partner Debra Rizzi. “She collaborated seamlessly with our internal art directors and the client. We are so pleased to see her recognized by the NJ Ad Club.”
Rizco also took home three additional awards during the evening including:
PUBLIC RELATIONS: FUNDRAISER COMMUNICATIONS – Silver
Plum Practicewear, Plum Cares: A Leo Can Save A Life
PUBLIC RELATIONS: ADVOCACY/POLITICAL MULTIMEDIA CAMPAIGN – Silver
NJ Asphalt Pavement Association, Vote: Yes: to PQ2
COLLATERAL/IDENTITY: SELF-PROMOTION, AGENCY – Bronze
Allison + Partners, Influence Study Campaign
Rizzi stated, “We touch catalogs almost daily, and the average consumer has no idea how much goes into the final end-product. From the content and imagery, to the typography and paper selection, there are so many individuals that are involved in the minute details that matter. The design recognition of the 2016 Breyer Holiday Catalog validates the collective efforts and detail-orientation that occurred between our client and the Rizco design team.”
