Ervin & Smith receives two silver ADDY awards for Vehicle Service Group campaign.

We’re excited to announce that Ervin & Smith was recently honored with two awards at the Nebraska ADDY Awards Competition on February 21.

The agency received two silver awards for “Raised in Madison,” a campaign for Vehicle Service Group (VSG). One award was given for the advertising campaign as a whole and another for the custom photography used in the campaign.

 Raised in Madison

 VSG is a family of nine brands that build world-class products in the collision repair and vehicle lifting industries. VSG and the Ervin & Smith creative team set out to build a campaign that showcases the hardworking and dedicated employees of Rotary Lift, which is headquartered in Madison, Indiana. The resulting “Raised in Madison” campaign is a series of three ads featuring gritty and dramatic custom photography. Real Rotary employees are the central focus of the ads, which will appear in various trade publications throughout the year.
