SAN DIEGO, CA – Dr. Ann Clark, CEO and founder of ACI Specialty Benefits, and Aaron Grisafi, ACI Senior Graphic Designer, were recognized with the Gold Award distinction for graphic design by the Hermes Creative Awards for their work on the cover of Dr. Clark’s latest book, Workplace Warfare. An international competition for creative professionals, the Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in traditional and emerging media while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals. Judges are industry experts who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.
“It is a great honor to have my latest book recognized by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, and especially noteworthy that this is ACI’s third consecutive Hermes Creative Award in as many years,” says ACI CEO Dr. Ann Clark. “Aaron Grisafi’s design skills are not only present in the look and feel of Workplace Warfare, but also play an integral part of serving ACI’s client base and enhancing the presentation of ACI’s product offerings. This recognition is very well deserved.”
In 2013, the ACI team received the Platinum Award for the overall design and layout of the new Student Assistance Outreach Resources (SOAR) Utilization Snapshot Infographic, and in 2012, the ACI CORE Wellness wheel design also earned The Platinum Award. The Platinum Award was the top distinction given out by AMCP and was only awarded to the top 15% of nearly 6,000 entries from around the world.
