Awards? Yup, Awards!

We have recently received a total of three design awards across two competitions. The winning work was for two different campaigns produced for The Open Thinking series by Wake Forest Innovations, one for radiation sciences and the other for confronting North Carolina’s opioid epidemic.

Two awards (a silver for the radiation campaign and a bronze for the opioid materials) were given by the Healthcare Advertising Awards, part of the Healthcare Marketing Report. The competition, now in its thirty-sixth year, received entries from around the world and selected under 20% to receive recognition at each level.

One additional award came from the Communicator Awards, an international competition in its twenty-fifth year, for our opioid work.

“We’re really excited to be part of two prestigious competitions like the Healthcare Advertising Awards and the Communicator Awards,” noted Elliot Strunk, president and self-appointed Ringleader of Fifth Letter. “Being recognized not only for general creativity but also subject matter expertise for healthcare is a treat. We’re flattered to be included among the hardworking groups whose work is being showcased and thank Wake Forest Innovations for being a fun client to work with.”
