With a fast and furious start to the New Year, we can’t help but reflect on the tremendous year we’ve had. We recognize that our good fortune couldn’t have been accomplished without you – our clients, partners, community, families and our people. Many thanks to you, here is our year in review.
We’ve enjoyed a year of accolades and industry-award recognition. Topping the list is our fearless leader, Tom Love, as he was honored by the American Advertising Federation of Utah with its most prestigious recognition, the 2015 Silver Medal Award. With leadership of this caliber, it’s gratifying to also have Love Communications named by the Salt Lake Tribune as a Wasatch Front Top Workplace. Fueled by our passion for politics, we received several Pollie Awards, and our love for driving tourism to our state was recognized at the 2015 Utah Office of Tourism conference for Best Publicity Stunt & Event for our client, Visit Salt Lake, and Overall Best Idea for Kane County’s “Abra Kanabra” campaign.
With primary focus on bringing our best to current clients, competing for new clients keeps us fresh and keeps us on top of our game. We’ve had a tremendous year of adding the following to our current roster of great clients:
Dixie State University – Rebranding campaign, public relations, design
Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort – Video and communications strategy
Hale Center Theatre – Public relations
Mountain West Cider – Branding, website, public relations, digital strategy, media buying
Fabian VanCott – Public relations, communications strategy, print advertising
City Creek Center – Added media strategy to public relations services
United Way – Renewed contract for all agency services
Google Fiber – Renewed contract for public relations
Nothing fuels our passion more than to see the finished product of our work except for others recognizing us for our work. Here’s a snapshot of the good stuff that’s kept us busy and loving our jobs this year. We hope you’ve enjoyed them as well!
We’ve had the opportunity to pull together all our creative forces in developing and executing full-service campaigns for BioFire Meningitis/Encephalitis panel; multi-channel campaigns for RC Willey featuring Trading Spaces’ host Paige Davis that have been shared through the entire western region; numerous multistate campaigns for Arctic Circle; captivating work in Experience the Wonders for Thanksgiving Point; and Jerry Seiner’s Experience the Seiner Difference featuring Amy Iverson.
Love’s digital team continued to grow as we knocked out a year of award-winning digital work. Most notable are SLCAirport.com, a microsite for Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, and a website for educational programs for Utah Department of Health.
With work comparable to the best from the west coast, Studio Love, housed in the upper level of our building, has had a year of producing spectacular videos for notable organizations, including Zions Bank, Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Women’s Leadership Institute, Idaho Department of Commerce, UDOT Quality Control, Murray City, and Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort.
Keeping at the forefront of our industry not only benefits our clients, it attracts some of the best talent to our state and to our firm. This past year we announced the creation of a new department, Content & Consumer Engagement – a progressive expansion and agency focus. And we’ve hired the talent of eight new employees from some of the largest firms in Utah, Arizona and Boston. If you haven’t already had the opportunity, look forward to meeting and working with our newest Lovers:
Melanie McBride, VP of Content & Consumer Engagement
Travis Gray, Art Director
Emma Phillippi, Account Manager
Hanna Pelletier, Digital Media Manager
Grant Glenewinkel, Interactive Developer
Jeff Losee, Web Developer
Madison Wood, Account Coordinator
Brenda Strand, Receptionist/Office Manager
Thank you for going on this crazy ride with us.
May we all have a prosperous, happy and healthy 2016!
