THM SoCal Marketing Communications receives national honors in the 58th Annual Graphic Design Awards

TheHomeMag Southern California (THM SoCal), is pleased to announce that the same professional staff that helps advertisers achieve the greatest potential returns from their print advertising in TheHomeMag, has been nationally recognized for its design talent. The THM SoCal Marketing Department was presented two 2021 American Graphic Design Awards. With more than 11,000 entries The American Graphic Design Awards™ competition, celebrates the best work of the year by design firms, ad agencies, inhouse departments, freelancers, and students. It honors outstanding work of all kinds — in print, packaging, p-o-p, internet, interactive, video and more. 

The American Graphic Design Awards were presented to the company for two projects: TheHomeMag’s informative Charting A Course Through COVID-19 campaign and TheHomeMag Media Kit. Each of the projects were beautifully designed, informative, and educational. The easy-to-read content helped and encouraged many small businesses through the unprecedented times.

THM SoCal owner, CEO, Ralph Harris noted, “During the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, we were fortunate to be in an industry that was considered essential so we could keep on working. Our communication efforts quickly transformed into mostly educational and informational for our home improvement advertisers. Kathy’s materials helped guide them through the muddy waters.”

“Last year was extremely challenging and continued through this year. Our marketing communications needed to be on point, timely, smart, reassuring and ever-evolving to the daily changes in business operations and at home. We all worked together — business owners, business partners, homeowners and staff — to survive and thrive. It’s an honor to be recognized for our effective design work by the renowned GDUSA,” commented, THM SoCal Marketing Director Kathy Latus.

GD USA Editor and Publisher Gordon Kaye said, “The winners of the American Graphic Design Awards are among the most talented and effective designers working today. They are the best and brightest the creative community has to offer.” An inhouse awards showcase will be published in the December 2021 GDUSA editions both in print and featured online.
