)-- The Business Marketing Association of NYC has given a 2007 B2B ACE Award to the Overland Agency, a leading West Coast branding and interactive advertising firm. Overland earned second place for Corporate/Brand Website for client Oregon Memorials, an award-winning Northwest wholesale provider of customized marble and granite memorials, columbaria, and public art installations.
Called “one of the six best creative awards” by the New York Times, the B2B ACE Awards recognize exceptional creative efforts in business-to-business marketing communications and advertising. Overland’s award came alongside other firms’ wins working for IBM, DHL, Kodak, Mastercard, FUJIFILM, Verizon Wireless, the United States Postal Service, and GE. This year’s panel of esteemed judges included directors and VPs from top national and international companies and publications, including American Express, Verizon, Forbes.com, Motorola, Business Week, and groundbreaking marketing agencies.
The media-rich Oregon Memorials site (www.oregonmemorials.com) showcases Oregon Memorials’ comprehensive solutions and features a first-in-industry virtual Memorial Builder—a unique Flash tool that lets cemeteries and funeral homes create and preview memorial options, easing clients’ decision making during a difficult time.
“Our goal as an agency is to continually push the limits of technological innovation," said Arve Overland, CEO and Executive Creative Director of the Overland Agency. “The Oregon Memorials product customization tool is an example of utilizing technology to stimulate sales growth online and to extend better service to clients.”
