Artemis and Aptive Win Top Honors from Hermes Creative Awards


Aptive and Artemis won 10 top honors from Hermes Creative Awards for inventive, artistic work supporting the federal government and producing corporate brand materials. Together, we and our clients received three Platinum honors, two Gold honors and five Honorable Mentions. These awards recognize creative experts around the world for their concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. Artemis is a key team member on several of the award-winning campaigns.

“The direction and insight from our government clients were integral in the success of these creative pieces,” said Taylor Grant, senior art director. “Many of our materials are shared nationwide to help people more clearly understand benefits and resources. Our team is honored to share in the success of these products with our clients and to be recognized for good work that’s making a difference.”

Over 6,500 entries were submitted from around the world by corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers.
