The evening’s other two “Best Of” awards went to Koch Creative Group (interactive) and Burly Studios (broadcast).
Greteman Group won gold ADDY awards for billboards, TV and identity. Additional ADDY wins included work in a variety of categories, including ads, websites, ecards, newsletters, point-of-purchase and collateral.
Greteman Group was awarded Best of Show/Print for the Kansas State Fair Raving Bull and Sheep Thrills billboards. They feature quirky barnyard critters: a groovy, glasses-wearing “Raving Bull” and a carousel animal offering “Sheep Thrills.” The campaign has also been recognized with first place awards from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions. “People love the Kansas State Fair’s creative,” says Denny Stoecklein, the fair’s general manager.
