The RMCAD Marketing Department has been awarded the 2014 MarCom Platinum Award for its recent alumni feature video spotlighting 2006 graduate Gregory Hayes. The award comes as the highest honor from MarCom Awards—a creative competition for individuals and companies involved in the concept, writing and design of print, visual, audio and web materials and programs.
The video features Gregory Hayes, a New York-based artist who has developed a unique painting style through his use of a drip bottle. The technique, originally inspired by RMCAD professor Clark Richert, has taken Hayes years to master. While showcasing Hayes’ visually mesmerizing works, the video also pays tribute to the innovation and work ethic behind the canvas.
Created by the collaborative efforts of Kristine Kilbourne (Producer), David Quakenbush (Director) and Joe DeFever (Editor), the team credits the video’s success to Gregory Hayes’ outstanding story and the school’s community at large. “Working at RMCAD provides a rich, creative environment where it's impossible not to feel inspired and produce stellar work,” says Kristine Kilbourne, Communications Manager. “Our alumni, students, faculty and staff set a high bar and I am grateful to be a part of this community.”
While the MarCom statuette may grace the trophy cases of some of the top business and communication firms around the world, the marketing team is proud to bring the figure home to more humbled grounds.
