“The pool of entries we received for this year’s Communicator Awards serves as a true testament to the innovative ideas and capabilities of communications and marketing professionals around the world. Each year our entrants continue to amaze by reinventing the ways we communicate and market in an ever-changing industry” noted Linda Day, executive director of the IAVA. She added, “On behalf of the entire Academy, we congratulate this year’s Communicator Award Entrants and Winners for their passion and dedication. We are humbled to be given the opportunity to recognize such amazing work.”
Visix’s Creative Services has seen a 150% increase in projects received in the most recent quarter, compared to the same period last year. In response, the company has hired Jill Biazzo as Creative Services Project Manager, and plans to rapidly expand its design team in the coming months.
Biazzo oversees all creative service projects for Visix including quoting, client consultation and overall project management. She works with a team of designers and contractors to develop and expand Visix’s creative product offering, and also spearheads Visix social media efforts. She has over ten years of experience in marketing and a Bachelor of Science in Communication from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.
“Creative is the fastest growing part of our business and we have a lot of great new creative products coming out this year,” says Biazzo. “Our clients realize that software alone won’t make their communications effective – employing our design talent and expertise ensures that their system looks great the day it launches. I’m excited to be joining Visix as they evolve to provide comprehensive visual communications services.”
In addition to taking on more full-time designers, Visix is launching a summer internship program for students of multimedia design at the Atlanta branch of the Savannah College of Art and Design and the Art Institute of Atlanta.
