Agency Adds to Its 500+ Creative Industry Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Michael Patrick Partners, a nationally recognized creative agency, announced today it has received four new design awards from Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) for work produced in education marketing. This year’s competition exceeded 10,000 entries of which only 10% were recognized for excellence in creative execution.

The agency’s new accolades included three awards presented for Santa Clara University assignments. One for its undergraduate admission enrollment campaign viewbook, another for the university’s Leavey School of Business admission enrollment campaign, and an additional individual award presented for the Leavey School of Business admission enrollment campaign viewbook.

A fourth recognition was presented for the multilevel communications fundraising campaign the agency developed for University of Redlands.

These new awards add to the 500+ certificates that cover the agency’s walls.

Along with the GDUSA show, a few of the same education marketing projects have also received high-level recognition from American Advertising Awards (formerly the ADDYs), Council for Advancement and Support of Education, Jesuit Advancement Administrators Recognition Awards, and University & College Designers Association.

 Michael Patrick Partners has developed a steady following in the education market helping universities and colleges improve the quality and quantity of admission applicant pools, refine institutional brand communications strategies into more differentiated stories, grow endowments, and design comprehensive brand identity programs. Those additional relationships include Golden Gate University, Pacific University, Stanford University, University of San Francisco, University of Portland, and many others.
