Washington, DC Metro (May 9, 2024) – Red Thinking is pleased to announce that it has been awarded five 2024 Hermes Creative Awards—an international awards competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing, and design of traditional and emerging media. Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals.

Red Thinking received an award for every project entered into this years’ 2024 Hermes Creative Awards including two Gold awards—including a landing page for The Barn at Brambleton, designed to attract brides, milestone celebrants, and corporate event planners to the modern and sophisticated venue in Ashburn, VA. By showcasing the venue’s history and rustic charm, Red Thinking designed a visually appealing digital platform that invites visitors to explore its beautiful surroundings and versatile event spaces. 

The second Gold award was given to Red Thinking’s organic social media campaign for the non-profit, Women Giving Back. 

“Working with Women Giving Back holds immense significance for our team,” says Shay Onorio, President and Owner of Red Thinking. “We are dedicated to amplifying their impactful initiatives, such as the backpack drive and winter coat drive, as collaborating with this organization is not just a job—it’s a privilege.” 

In addition, Red Thinking won two 2024 Platinum awards, including a logo for The Inner Loop—a non-profit organization promoting the distinctive literary culture of Washington, DC. With The Inner Loop embodying inclusivity and progressivism, Red Thinking was inspired by warmth, intellect, and diversity, in turn creating a logo that merged academia with approachability, capturing the brand’s welcoming ethos and forward-thinking stance. The second Platinum award was given to Red Thinking for their production of a magazine for senior living companyEnglish Meadows. The magazine serves as a comprehensive guide, providing insight into life at the community and showcasing each campus through dedicated pages featuring storytelling and personal testimonials from residents, group activities and amenities.

Honorable Mention was awarded to Red Thinking’s work on a holiday card for EagleBank, a design collaboration aimed at evoking winter vibes while avoiding specific holiday references, ensuring inclusivity for all recipients.

“At Red Thinking, we focus on nurturing the importance of a brand’s ‘Why,’” says Onorio. “Our team diligently works toward clear and comprehensive goals with our clients, allowing us to deliver branding, design, and digital campaigns that successfully resonate with the end user. We appreciate the Hermes Creative Awards and AMCP for recognizing us with five awards this year.”

Over 6,500 entries ranging from throughout the United States, Canada and two dozen other countries were entered into the Hermes Creative Awards 2024 competition. Corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, and freelancers entered over 200 award categories, from print media and strategic campaigns to interactive media and pro bono work.
