Valspar. The “V” is for victory.

June 6, 2008

A quiet hurray: Our Valspar campaign was given a bronze Effie last night in New York. A large number of us were there to receive it. As it happens, our category, “new products/campaigns” also had in it the launch work for a little gadget called Wii. Understandably, Wii grabbed gold as well as the Grand Effie. Which meant no gold for us! Oh, well. Next year for sure.

Kudos to Leo Burnett for this well-deserved and, frankly, well-needed prize. Folks have been on LBCO’s case a lot lately. This victory should offer some timely relief.

I wanted to post one of the Valspar commercials but You Tube isn’t letting me imbed either film. (However, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many people were viewing the spots.)

Our sophomore effort for Valspar is breaking right now. I dare say that work is even better. And just as soon as my traveling companions give me the photographs, I’ll post a shot of our client belting ’em out at the karaoke bar on 38th Street!

Thanks to everyone below for helping to create this fine campaign. Congrats on your Effie.
