Architectural Record, a McGraw-Hill Construction publication, presented its 17th annual awards to 62 individual companies and agencies at a breakfast during the AIA 2013 National Convention and Design Exposition in Denver June 21.The winners were chosen from the best of more than 150 advertisements, according to a jury of architects.
“We are honored to be recognized by Architectural Record and appreciate the insight the judges provided during the awards program,” said Chris Dolan, director, Commercial Glass Marketing, Guardian Industries. “It is exciting that our ads were able to attract the attention of the judges in a crowded and creative field of competitors.”
The winning banner ads, designed by Carton Donofrio Partners, Inc., appeared on Architectural Record’s website, and were judged for content and graphic presentation by a jury of 10 architects from across the country.
The judges recognized the Guardian SunGuard ads for “clean animation and design” in promoting the advanced glazing products.
