Creative SA


San Antonio-based Creative Civilization, known for its high-profile and award-winning work, is enjoying a week filled with numerous accolades for its creative and public relations campaigns, including 12 ADDY Awards from the American Advertising Federation (AAF) and two statewide awards from the Texas Public Relations Association (TPRA).
Creative Civilization will accept 12 ADDY Awards at a special presentation on Saturday, February 20, 2010 for creative work produced for University Health System, American State Bank, San Antonio Opera, George Gervin Youth Center, The Magik Theatre, San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and agency self-promotion. The award winning work includes a variety of categories including television, print, outdoor, video and collateral materials.
“These awards are a reflection of our agency culture and mantra,” says Al Aguilar, Chairman and CEO of Creative Civilization. “‘Inspiration is all around us’ is more than just words – it’s our way of viewing the world. “
In addition to the agency’s creative awards, Creative Civilization will also receive two statewide accolades from the Texas Public Relations Association on March 4, 2010. The agency won a Silver Spur award from the TPRA in the “Special Events” category for the George Gervin Celebrity Roast and a Best of Texas Award for the San Antonio Opera.
“Our public relations work continues to demonstrate the power of PR,” says Gisela Girard, President and COO of Creative Civilization. “It is an integral part of our integrated approach to the market.”
The George Gervin Celebrity Roast, held in March 2009, honored San Antonio Spurs legend, George “The Iceman” Gervin. The high-profile event was attended by more than 1200 guests including basketball legend Hall-of-Famers Bill Russell and Julius “Dr. J” Erving, among others. The roast benefited the George Gervin Youth Center’s “Legends of the Future” Capital Campaign. Funds from the Celebrity Roast helped the organization reach its goals to break ground on the George Gervin Fitness and Wellness Center in June 2009.
The agency won a Best of Texas Award from the TPRA for the San Antonio Opera 2009-2010 “Vacation for the Soul” season brochure, which was created to communicate opera’s ability to transport people around the world. The San Antonio Opera’s season was kicked off in September 2009 with a futuristic production of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly.
