Amplified Media is excited in winning a national award for 2012 American Graphic Design Awards for GD USA. This national organization has been around for almost 50 years and saw over 8,000 entries this year. My photographs will be featured as a winner alongside design by Asheville based firm Atlas Branding & Design and published in the 2012 GD Design Annual magazine later this year. - Jared Kay

RE: CONGRATULATIONS FROM THE AMERICAN GRAPHIC DESIGN AWARDS
I want to take a moment to call attention to ATLAS BRANDING & DESIGN and it's award-winning performance on your behalf in the 49th Annual American Graphic Design Awards. From more than 9,000 entries worldwide, a small percentage of the design and communication projects were selected as winners by an independent panel of experts. The performance was, in a nutshell, exceptional.
Further, AMPLIFIED MEDIA is in great company. Fellow clients whose design firms or departments won awards this year include the likes of Coca-Cola and Kraft, Target and Sears, Adobe and Microsoft, Starbucks and Domino's, HBO and Sony Pictures, Nike and Levi's Ford and GM, NASA and GAO, Citibank and Bank of America, Harvard and University of Texas, YMCA and United Way, and other market leaders.
By way of background, this five-decade old competition is presented each year by Graphic Design USA, the monthly trade magazine for graphic design professionals since 1963. It honors the power of design to shape commerce, culture and communications across all media including print and packaging, publishing and broadcast, signs and point-of-purchase, internet and interactive graphics.
Congratulations and best wishes.
