2022 was another banner year for 4CDesignWorks and awards recognition from the various graphic design and marketing competitions. It is validation for the hard work and commitment to our clients that has become synonymous with 4C. From fields of tens of thousands, to be awarded is an honor as on average only 10% of the entrants are awarded.
Here are some notable projects, a bit about each, and the awards received.
2022 Hermes Awards
The Hermes Awards take place in Q1 of every year, which can make reflecting on the wins a fun experience. The 2022 winning projects fall into corporate branding/rebranding and website categories.
Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals. Hermes winners are evaluated in digital platforms and traditional marketing. Judges of this competition assess branding, logo design, publications, business collateral, websites, videos, advertising, marketing, and communication programs.
Sheesley + Associates Rebranding wins Gold

Winning in the “Website Overall” category caps off the transformation this business underwent that stretches beyond it’s noticeable color.

Sheesley + Associates Wins Gold for Website Redesign
The Sheesley + Associates website is another piece of the overall improvement of the marketing efforts that started only a year or two ago. It wraps up the first phase of working with BuildBold and decision makers at Sheesley + Associates to update content, commit to change by replacing environmental graphics, vehicle magnets, outdoor signage, and corporate stationery – so the new look is consistent on screen and in the wild!
SRI Quality System Registrar Wins Gold for Professional Service Website
What is excellent about this website is that the original design was created back in 2016 and won a Gold Hermes at that time. The design has held up as the transition of the website was more development-oriented (due to shifts in WordPress) and is a great indicator that many of our designs stand the test of time!
Diamond Digital Web Application from Diamond Springs Wins an Honorable Mention for the B2C (Business to Consumer) Mobile/Apps Category
The Mango Web portal U.I. and Diamond Springs Water project overall has earned complimentary marks from the client and it’s users. Providing a “face lift” that better mirrors the company was the goal and with the accolades awarded, so far, it is safe to say we hit the mark!

MarCom, dotCOMM, and the Hermes Awards are administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP).

We preach a process that sees planning and strategy first. Often this includes an in-depth look at the existing branding, website, social, organic SEO, and printed materials. All of this is done as part of our competitive analysis, which leads to recommendations on how to improve each avenue and better speak to our clients’ clients.
Ludgate Engineering Wins Gold for Small Business Website Design

What started as a rough doodle concept spun into a unique “S-cube” icon that showcases the complex nature of engineering services, while giving the company a stand-out mark to use a variety of different ways.

4CDesignWorks has been recognized for the 11th consecutive year with multiple awards from this competition!
BuildBold Letterhead and Stationery Design
Our work with BuildBold started with the logo design and spun into the necessary elements that many businesses need: business cards and letterhead. The stationery design is reflective of the BuildBold mission statement and uses those key words as artwork.
Darren Miller 3.0 Website Design
We have been lucky enough to work with Darren Miller from the beginning of his quest to conquer the Ocean’s Seven. The evolution of this extreme athlete-turned-speaker has been a ride and the newest iteration of his website reflects the more professional nature of his philanthropic, coaching, and motivational endeavors.
Telephonix Website Redesign
Many of our new clients start with a website need. In today’s day and age having some “digital ink” to tell potential customers who you are and what you do is essential. Telephonix was in the growing camp of companies in need of a complete re-imagining. That started with an award-winning brand and logo design then continued to the website.
ARS Website Support (Self Promotion)
4CDesignWorks has made a strong connection with Advance Route Systems and clients that are looking to integrate their Mango Web Portal platform into their website strategy is something that we have done for nearly a decade now. Due to the popularity of the request for updating the website and using Mango Web, we created a landing page that educates users on how we can team up to give the Mango Web a customized U.I. that is reflective of their brand.
