5IVE | The Show Awards

It’s Time to Show off at the Show

Last Friday was Ad Fed of Minnesota’s largest event of the year, The Show, which celebrates work from the local advertising community. All the best work from our great creative community was on display and so were all the great personalities.

The Show was a truly rewarding experience for us at 5IVE. Three of our submissions earned us some well deserved hardware – two silver awards and one gold.

A Package Design Worth Its Weight in Gold

After a year of refinement and multiple transformations our design for Ecgberht of Kent gin is proving the mantra that hard work pays off. The packaging recently won an American Package Design Award from Graphic Design USA. It was very exciting to also receive the gold pin at The Show and move on to the next round of judging at the Addy awards.

A Sweet & Silver Reward for Branding

Most creative branding agencies can only dream of landing a chocolate client. We were lucky enough to live that dream and build a sweet brand presence. Our work for K’ul Chocolate took us on a journey from the ancient Mayan culture and rituals surrounding chocolate to the new beginnings of this local bean to bar brand dedicated to elevating the status of chocolate and proving that cacao beans are full of goodness. K’ul is the mayan word for “energy” and our branding embraced that to showcase the health benefits and attributes of these superfood bars.

We are very excited about the recognition of this branding and will display our silver pin with pride.

The Silver Lining of a Creative Fortune

Getting an award in the self-promotion category is an awesome achievement and we are very proud to win silver amongst some amazing creative shops.

This poster was envisioned, designed and produced to prove that the old formula of Fast, Good and Cheap should never determine the fate of a project. Creativity is a power source that we must cherish and never sacrifice due to a lack of big budgets or adequate deadlines.

Our Creative Fortune poster celebrates hard work, creative process, and the ability to re-envision and inspire. We wanted to show our clients and fellow creatives that dedication, healthy relationships and professionalism will always result in good fortune. This silver pin is a wonderful reminder of that.
