WASHINGTON, May 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Qorvis MSLGROUP, the Washington, D.C.-based unit of MSLGROUP, has been honored with two Hermes Creative Awards for outstanding advertising work. The top honors, chosen out of more than 6,000 entries from 22 countries, include a Platinum Award in the "TV Ad" category for AAMCO and an Honorable Mention in the "Advertising Campaign" category for the Alzheimer's Association.
Qorvis MSLGROUP developed the TV commercial spot, "We Hear You," on behalf of AAMCO, an iconic American brand and client since 2009. For the Alzheimer's Association, Qorvis MSLGROUP developed the "Tombstone" concept to convey the rising costs of Alzheimer's disease, which was presented as a full campaign featuring print, online banner, and radio ads.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by the 2015 Hermes Awards for our work on AAMCO and the Alzheimer's Association," said Michael J. Petruzzello, president of Qorvis MSLGROUP. "Qorvis MSLGROUP prides itself on executing integrated communications campaigns for our clients, and these awards highlight the talent of our creative team and the strong work we deliver every day."
AAMCO, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, enlisted Qorvis MSLGROUP as its Agency of Record in 2009. Since then, Qorvis MSLGROUP has produced 12 TV commercials for the iconic brand, including the "We Hear You" campaign. Qorvis MLSGROUP also has developed highly successful print and digital campaigns for AAMCO, as well as a mobile app.
The "Tombstone" creative concept was developed for the Alzheimer's Association as part of an integrated public affairs campaign to underscore the urgent need for additional research for America's most expensive disease. The campaign included research, public relations, legislative support and digital strategy as well as the advertising elements.
In April, the National Safety Council awarded Qorvis MSLGROUP a $3.25 million contract to launch a national campaign to educate drivers about new safety technologies through advertising, media relations and public affairs support. To learn more about Qorvis MSLGROUP, please visit: www.qorvismsl.com
