Location: Hudson, WI
Title of Entry: “CC15”
Category: 303. Video/Audio – Video/Film – Special Event

Not many businesses are based in a renovated church or have an office ghost for that matter. That’s what sets Christiansen Creative apart from other agencies, along with their award-winning graphic design work.

In a mockumentary like The Office, Christiansen Creative walks through every-day office life, including spelling woes, pranks between coworkers, an office haunting and lots of food. The MarCom statuette even makes a cameo! It’s no surprise each of the team members chose “fun” as the best word to represent the studio.

Tricia Christiansen says she is doing “great work with great people,” and we agree. Congratulations to Christiansen Creative on 15 years of amazing work, and many more!

Category: 2. Print Media – Direct Marketing – Bench/Shelter/Mass Transit

Congress has declared the opioid crisis a national emergency. It’s a crisis that cuts across social and economic classes.

Pain medication has legitimate uses, but the dangers of falling into addiction can be great. Research shows that most Americans became addicted to opioids while taking legal medication prescribed by a doctor.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons started an education program to warn people about the power of pain medication. The organization is pasting bus stops with banners to drive home the point. In a creative display, the banners look at the situation from the inside out.
