How we’ve done business has drastically changed over the past year, and even how we attend award ceremonies. But one constant is that Trilix has continued to partner with our clients to produce outstanding work. We walked the virtual red carpet on Saturday, February 27 to attend the American Advertising Federation (AAF) of Des Moines’ 2021 American Advertising Awards, where we celebrated winning eight awards from our couches.

The American Advertising Awards celebrate excellence in the art of advertising as judged by a panel of leading marketing and advertising practitioners from AAF clubs in other cities. We won Gold and Silver Awards along with a Judges Choice Award this year. The event, which is the first step in a three-tier competition, recognizes entries on a local level. Winners advance to the district competition in hopes of making it to the national competition to earn top honors.

Collaborating with amazing clients makes our job easy. While we are proud of the new trophies that adorn our office, we are honored to create lasting partnerships to inspire meaningful work for our clients’ brands.

"Collaborating with amazing clients makes our job easy,” said Brett Adams, chief marketing officer. “While we are proud of the new trophies that adorn our office, we are honored to create lasting partnerships to inspire meaningful work for our clients’ brands.”
