London Firm “Three-Peats” Honours In International Creative Competition

London, Ontario: London-based Marketing Strategies & Solutions has again been recognized for excellence in graphic communications by the international Summit Creative Awards.

The firm was awarded a Gold medal in the “Specialties” category for a calendar created for John Zubick Limited, a London, Ontario recycling operation. The project is the most recent in a popular series that the agency has undertaken for Zubick over several years. The large format wall calendar features artistic interpretations of scrap metals and sculptures at the Zubick recycling yard on Clarke Road in London, Ontario, while still serving as a useful planning tool.

The Summit competition, now in its 25th year, celebrates creative achievement by small and medium-sized advertising agencies and studios. The 2019 award program drew more than over 4,500 entries from a record-setting 27 different countries. The Zubick’s calendar that Marketing Strategies & Solutions entered to the Summit Awards back in 2017 was singled out for one of four coveted Judges Choice awards, a special designation for exceptional work, drawn from all categories.

“We are very thrilled to be recognized for maintaining the high standards that we established for this project,” said Robert Adeland, President and founder of Marketing Strategies & Solutions. Adeland expressed thanks to John Zubick Limited for supporting his team’s creative vision. “We’ve enjoyed an excellent partnership with the Zubick family for many years. The confidence they show in our staff and in our ideas is always gratifying. Creating breakthrough work in commercial design always requires a leap of trust. The ultimate reward for this collaboration is the appreciation and goodwill that the calendar attracts from Zubick’s customers every year. We understand that they begin receiving calls for it sometime in October as they don’t want to miss it.”
