PlanMySite.com team members enjoyed a fun night of comedy, dining and professional networking this past Friday as the Art Directors Club of New Jersey (ADCNJ) hosted its 48th annual awards show. Taking place at the lovely Birchwood Manor in Whippany, New Jersey, this local event provided artists with the recognition they deserved for the projects they have completed. We were very humbled and excited to learn that the PlanMySite.com Web site earned a Silver Award in the Web Product category.
It was quite the honor to be recognized with a Silver Award. This is particularly true when considering the elite panel of judges. Some of the members of the judge’s panel included:
- Stephanie Berman – Creative Partner of the CementBloc
- Randy J. Hunt – Design Director of Etsy.com
- Michael Schnepf – Senior Designer of Pentagram Design
- Tyler Lafreniere – Art Director of Chopping Block Interactive
- Nancy Fava – Creative Director of BioLumina
This is just a small sampling of the more than a dozen judges who weighed in on the awards. Being in the company of such accomplished individuals was certainly a pleasure.
Of course, the evening at the Birchwood Manor was about more than just receiving awards. Not only did the dinner provide us with opportunities to network with other New Jersey artists, but it was also a whole lot of fun. Thanks to the comedic styling of host Sarge, who has appeared on Comedy Central, HBO and numerous other venues, the night went by much too quickly. Sarge was quite the hilarious host who left everyone laughing until their sides were hurting.
All in all, it was a great night for everyone. It is not too often that you have the opportunity to meet with other New Jersey professionals while also enjoying a great meal and enjoying an entertaining show. It was truly a night of fun and excitement – and coming away from the show with a Silver Award was just icing on the cake!
