Dark Horse Design Places in Top International Award in 2 Categories – 2016 Summit Creative Award

Neptune, NJ

Out of more than 5,000 submissions from 21 countries, Dark Horse Design is named a Silver and Bronze winner in the 2016 Summit Creative Award® competition for its creative work for Ansell Healthcare in the categories of Package Redesign and Collateral Redesign, respectively.

"We're always proud of the work we do for our clients, and we're really honored by having that work recognized among the best in two categories in such a sizable international competition."

– Christine Rusin, Co-Owner, Dark Horse Design

Entries in 20 major categories are judged against a stringent set of standards. During its blind judging (entering company names withheld) the Board of Judges search for and identify innovative and creative concepts, strong executions and user experience, and the ability to communicate and persuade. Winners were selected in a wide-range of categories from print and broadcast to, online advertising and social media.

“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in ones career. With vetted judges, tough judging criteria, two-phase blind judging processes, and strict bylaws limiting winners, only deserving entries receive recognition.” Said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards (SIA). “The creative work this year was outstanding.  Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the run-off for the tops spots was inspiring.”
