Clever Receives 3 Addys at District Competition

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The work of marketing agency Clever recently advanced to the American Advertising Federation’s Fifth District Competition, where it brought home three awards.

This marks the first time the Clever team, which includes Francesca Bryne, Whitney Burd, Tony Marr and Adrienne Sabo, has been recognized at the district level for its creative work.

Clever received Silver Addys for the Black History Month campaign for Alta Care Group and the AdChella campaign for the Ad Chapter. And for the second time, the marketing agency received a MOSAIC Addy for the Black History Month campaign for Alta Care Group. The MOSAIC Addy is a judge’s choice award that honors work that best exemplifies a spirit of diversity and inclusion.

“Our goal with Clever was to be a true creative house where clients could turn to for powerful creative work that would make an impact, stand out in the marketplace and inspire action,” said Adrienne Sabo, one of Clever’s co-founders. “To have that work recognized at this level is an incredible honor.”

The Fifth District of the AAF represents 11 professional advertising associations and 18 college chapters throughout Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
