Graphis is pleased to present the works of advertising agencies DD&A (image above) and The Gate (image below) for this year’s competition. Other New York City submissions into the 2016 Advertising Annual competition include Devito|Verdi, Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann RCW, and Palio.

In response to a recent increases in competition, DD& A sought to develop messaging that was bold and informed the public of the “muscle” Dodge Data & Analytics’s premium packages. The advertisement displayed essential data, and intelligence to strengthen their market position. Recently a number of new players have entered the low end of the market and our direct competitor has dramatically reduced pricing.


Agency: The Gate   Client: Garanimals   Art Director: Nicole Miller

The approach used by The Gate was based on a simple insight shared by all parents: “little kids grow fast.” Their goal was to position Garanimals as a company that provided an “affordable way to always keep their kids looking great no matter how fast they grew.” The vibrant and colorful imagery introduced a brand new clothing line for cost-conscious parents.
