Notkin's playing cards was recognized as the "Best of Show"

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), has announced the recipients of its 2017 National Marketing Communications Awards (MCA). This annual competition is the longest-standing awards program recognizing excellence in marketing and communications by professional services firms in the design and building industry.

SMPS says the awards recognize individuals and teams who create outstanding communication vehicles for architectural, engineering, design, and construction firms.

This is the only awards program that highlights the critical role and immense value marketing professionals bring to the design and building industry. The award winners were announced and honored on July 13 in Indianapolis, as a part of the annual SMPS Build Business conference.

The Best of Show Award, bestowed by a jury of industry executives, was awarded to Notkin Mechanical Engineers from Seattle, Washington, for their Book/Monograph entry titled, Architecture of the Pacific Northwest: A Playing Card Artwork Project. Jurors said this playing card artwork project took the focus off the client and showcased the talent of the Pacific Northwest design community. It was extremely creative, well written, and demonstrated results.

The People’s Choice Award, voted on by the attendees of the SMPS conference, was awarded to Hensel Phelps from Greeley, Colorado, for its Recruitment and Retention category, “Work Hard, Play Hard.”
