The agency also took home a silver in Online/Interactive Websites for its work for Insight Clinical Counseling and Wellness LLC, and a third silver in Online/Interactive Social Media Campaign for its Women’s History Month social media campaign for Alta Head Start

“We are incredibly honored and proud to have our work recognized this year,” Tony Marr, Clever co-founder, business development, said in the release. “The variety of categories we received honors in shows the breadth of our creative work and our ability to create powerful pieces of advertising for clients across all media.”

The highlight of the Feb. 18 award ceremony, the company stated, was receiving the Judge’s Choice Award for the Alta Head Start social media campaign.
