Incite Creative Named as Finalist for AMA Baltimore Marketing Excellence Award

BALTIMORE, MD – The American Marketing Association (AMA), one of the world’s largest marketing associations, conducts an annual review of the best local marketing campaigns with demonstrable success. Incite Creative, a Baltimore-based marketing and graphic design firm that provides strategic and creative solutions to corporate and non-profit clients, was recently named by the AMA’s Baltimore chapter as a finalist for their Marketing Excellence Award.

The marketing association performed a review of Incite Creative’s work with The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Foundation in support of the Baltimore Elementary/Middle School Library Project. This multi-million dollar, multi-year initiative works with local schools by designing, building, equipping, and staffing new or renovated school libraries to improve the reading proficiency in Baltimore’s elementary and middle schools. Incite Creative’s challenge was to create a marketing campaign to generate awareness and involvement from government officials, state agencies, heads of education, and the general public.

Before the project launched in December 2011, Incite conducted focus groups with age-appropriate children and their parents to help provide the strategy for the campaign. As a result of the feedback, Incite designed the Library Project’s multi-color logo that represents books and the urban landscape. Additional brand touch points, including print and electronic invitations, book marks, book plates, signage and support marketing materials were also created.

Among other utility, these pieces were used to generate publicity for the Book Drive, a community-wide effort to collect books during the state’s Read Across Maryland month in March. As of April, the Book Drive resulted in the collection of close to 10,000 books.

In addition to working with the Weinberg Foundation on this project, Incite Creative has a long history of successfully assisting non-profit organizations with brand development and creative services. Some other non-profits that Incite has worked with include:

Autism Society of America Baltimore/Chesapeake Chapter

By Their Side

Center for Medical Technology Policy

Moveable Feast

Tissue Banks International

“We enjoy building brands for a variety of industries, but we do hold a special place in our hearts for nonprofit organizations. In addition to feeling a sense of pride in helping them fulfill their mission, we also find that nonprofits are typically very receptive to our suggestions and grateful for our help. In an age where the workday never ends and client demands can be draining, a simple ‘thank you so much!’ or, ‘we could have never done this without you’ on the other end of the line is a welcome reminder that our work is valued and our skills are appreciated,” said Dina Wasmer, President of Incite Creative Inc.

The American Marketing Association will be holding their annual event at the American Visionary Art Museum on September 5th to announce the winners. To register: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3484954593
