Rochester, NY — What does it take to be recognized as one of the best among the brightest worldwide? It takes a small agency doing big things with great clients.

29 Design Studio is honored to announce that rebranding work for Imagine Monroe has received a silver award in the Corporate Identity category of the International Davey Awards competition.

“We’re very excited to receive this recognition for our client,” said 29 Design Studio’s founder, Maureen Ballatori. “Working with Imagine Monroe to reposition and rebrand the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency has been one of our favorite projects and this is just the beginning.

About the Davey Awards:
The Davey Awards is an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small agencies worldwide. The 13th Annual Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms.

David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small agencies do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative David’s” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a “Giant’s” bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the
recognition they deserve.
