BDA Earns Two Stevies in 2017 American Business Awards

May 25, 2017


Branded merchandise agency recognized for Marketing Campaign of the Year and Best Home/Welcome Page

BDA was recently honored with two American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program, for outstanding work on the Corona Extra campaign featuring Coach Jon Gruden and the BDA website redesign.

The Jon Gruden Corona campaign was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the Marketing Campaign of the Year – Alcoholic Beverages category. The innovative giant bobbleheads captured the judges’ attention and the seamless execution sealed the deal. One judge commented, “Great use of humor and a completely new take on a traditional marketing promotion. Well done!” Another wrote, “Great job on the logistics with all of those bobbleheads getting to the right location…seems to have been a very coordinated campaign.”

BDA’s new website was also recognized with a Bronze Stevie in the Best Home/Welcome Page category. Judges found the new website highlighted our unique story and culture. “Excellent site,” wrote a judge, “I loved the tone of the copy and how it fit with the images perfectly. I think it gets across what this agency does and provides a really neat perspective on the organization.”

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.

BDA and the other Stevie winners will be presented with their awards on June 20 in New York.
