At the International Design Award (IDA), in the category of graphic design, creatives from the Split-based agency for creative communication CARLI + SOSA received double recognition for rebranding of the Aminess Hotels & Campsites.
In the subcategory “stationary” for the design of business documents, in strong competition among more than 1,000 submitted works from 52 countries of the world, they won the bronze IDA statue, while with the full branding of corporate identity for Aminess Hotels & Campsites the received the special Honorable Mention 2017.
“This is a big encouragement and confirmation for us that came at the right time. Croatian market is small and we often encounter clients who find it difficult to understand the importance and perceive the amount of work behind quality branding. For almost ten years we have focused on a comprehensive approach and detailed analysis of all aspects of the brand and its environment, which can, as in this project, take months. The design is only part of the process of branding and not its foundation. The new visual identity was implemented last year and guests received it great, but we are also very happy that the end result was acknowledged in the international, professional circles,” said Goran Šoša, who, along with Igor Carli, was the author of the award-winning project.

OGILVY & MATHER MOURN THE PASSING OF AD VETERAN CHRIS WALL
Ogilvy & Mather have paid a glowing tribute to advertising legend Chris Wall who passed away on Tuesday night following a brief battle with cancer at the age of 61.
The veteran copywriter is best known for leading technology campaigns for the likes of Apple, IBM and Microsoft during a two-decade long career at Ogilvy & Mather, during which he rose to the post of vice chairman of Ogilvy North America.
Wall’s association with Ogilvy stretches all the way back to 1996, when he first joined as an executive creative director before steadily working his way through the ranks to reach the top. Prior to this, Wall had spent a year at Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam and had spent close to a decade at BBDO.
In the wake of his success with Apple for BBDO Wall went on to work with Microsoft at Wieden + Kennedy before landing the IBM role at Ogilvy. It was this latter role which cemented Wall’s reputation in the eyes of his peers by helping to revitalize a brand that had been written off as dead with a creative resurgence throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
