Company branding campaign recognized for highest honors under the “Print Media, Integrated Marketing” category  

Royal Oak, Mich., May 13, 2019 – Airfoil Group was recently awarded the Hermes Creative Platinum Award in the competition’s “Print Media, Integrated Marketing” category for its company branding campaign it conducted on behalf of client, Village Green. After changing its leadership and its business model, national property-management company Village Green needed a brand that reflected its growth and transformation. Airfoil embarked on a multi-step journey to articulate Village Green’s evolution and the traits that made the brand truly distinct through its Reimagining Distinctive Living campaign.

Airfoil Group also received the Gold Award in the competition’s “Electronic Media/Social Media/Interactive Media – Social Media" category for its work with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) and the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) by supporting the development of the Michigan Fall Road Trip influencer campaign. The goal of the campaign was to highlight MSHDA/SHPO’s mission of helping to protect and preserve historic properties and showcase all of the beauty Michigan has to offer residents and guests through curated content developed and promoted by local influencers via their social media channels, and through owned channels.

Airfoil provides branding, and media relations support to Village Green and media relations, digital media and marketing communications support to the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.
