The Balcom Agency of Fort Worth received a national Gold ADDY Award for its Chippewa Boots History brochure, designed for Justin Brands, at the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) 2013 American Advertising Awards.

Designed by Balcom Senior Art Director Trey Sprinkle, the Chippewa Boots History brochure won a Gold ADDY and Best of Show–Print in February at the 2013 American Advertising Federation – Fort Worth (AAF–FW) local ADDY Awards, the first level of the three-tier competition. The brochure went on to win a district Gold ADDY in the second level of the ADDY Awards, advancing it to the national competition.

“We are completely overwhelmed by our first Gold ADDY win at the national level,” said Stuart Balcom, president and CEO of the Fort Worth-based advertising, interactive and public relations firm. “It’s an incredible honor for us and our clients at Justin Brands. I couldn’t be more proud of the hard work and creative excellence the B Team has delivered – it has definitely paid off.”
