Big Idea Wins Two Communicator Awards

The winners of the 22nd Annual Communicator awards have been announced. Big Idea Advertising was awarded the 2016 Gold Award of Excellence for their work on the Cardinal Hayes Alumni Magazine in the Magazine, Educational Institution category. In addition, the project was honored with the Silver Award of distinction in the the Newsletter, Educational Institution category.

“We are honored to be recognized with the 2016 Communicator award. This accolade symbolizes our dedication to bringing the Cardinal Hayes alumni community engaging content that will serve as a source of inspiration,” said Jackina Farshtey, Director of Communications and Marketing, Cardinal Hayes High School.

This is the second year in a row that Big Idea Advertising was recognized by the Communicator Awards. Last year, the agency walked away with Gold for their work on the Hale & Hearty brand and store re-design.

“We could not be more pleased with how the magazine turned out. It was truly a wonderful collaboration that included the school’s development team, writers, editors and photographers. Most importantly this issue highlights the contributions Cardinal Hayes High School makes in the lives of the students and the local community,” said Steve Defontes, President, Big Idea Advertising.
