“The best part about winning these awards is the opportunity to showcase our amazing clients,” said idfive’s co-founder Andres Zapata. “The type of organizations we work with aren’t normally represented in these competitions. It’s very rewarding to prove that inspiring and impactful creative work can be done for mission-based clients.”

“I’m extremely proud of the work our creative team did this year. We have a hungry group with a chip on its shoulder and a mission to prove themselves,” said idfive’s Creative Director Matt McDermott. “Winning in a range of categories shows that we can do transformative work for anyone.”

Of the eight awards that the agency won two were Gold and six were Silver.
