Integrated marketing firm Imagine, Inc. is shining a national spotlight on Northern Virginia, earning an Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts “Communicator Award of Excellence” for its work on the Steins, Vines & Moonshine Trail, a Prince William County Office of Tourism branding project to collectively promote 20 tasting rooms located in the county and the City of Manassas.
Imagine’s contributions to the campaign include marketing strategy, branding and logo design, along with promotional materials such as a trail map, print advertisements, signage and rack cards.
“Imagine immediately understood our vision. Their expertise in campaign strategy, design and messaging is allowing us to build a cohesive brand around the breweries, wineries and distilleries in Prince William and Manassas, putting our region on the map as a tasting room destination. This recognition is well-deserved,” said Ann Marie Maher, Director of Tourism for Visit Prince William, Virginia.
With entries received from across the US and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals.
