The STICK Co. wows at 2015 Crystal Awards

The STICK Co. walked away a winner at the 2015 Public Relations Society of America West Virginia Chapter gala held in Charleston recently.

The agency won top honors for two of websites it created and in the single-issue newsletter booklet category. Another of its sites earned an honorable mention.

The STICK Co. created the Mountain State Stone website to showcase the company’s luxurious outdoor products and breathtaking imagery representing many finished products. The site was eye-catching and helped Mountain State Stone to create an online presence and overall lifestyle brand. The site earned first place from PRSA.

STICK also earned the top spot in the “Pro Bono Website” category for our work on the Deuce Strong website. The site tells the story of 6-year-old West Virginia-born Devon “Deuce Williams” who was diagnosed with a serious condition that will require a double lung transplant. STICK wanted to help create an online presence and platform for fundraising. PRSA agreed the site is pretty special too.

Another first place was awarded to STICK for its work on the WVU Children’s Hospital Gala Booklet. On this project, the STICK staff worked closely with WVU Children’s Hospital to showcase the food, dining, entertainment and live auctions that were planned as part of the hospital’s annual fundraising gala. Emotional language and photography were used to draw an emotional connection between the event and the cause.

STICK’s work on Clear Mountain Bank’s new website earned an honorable mention from PRSA. On this project, the agency’s staff worked closely with bank leadership to revamp its existing website with modern design tools and a more interactive and user-friendly design which led to an increase in number of accounts.

“We’ve worked so hard,” said STICK Co. President Damian Ferek. “I couldn’t be more proud of our team and how they put such heart and soul into every single project we take on. The sky’s the limit for us at this rate and we are humbled by this recognition from such an important industry association.”
