Sage Communications Augments Diverse Portfolio, Wins Telly Award

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Sage Communications, one of the fastest growing full-service marketing communications firms in Greater Washington, D.C., today announced the addition of three new accounts to its growing roster of government, technology, corporate and nonprofit clients, as well as the company's most recent industry accolade win -- a Silver Telly Award for a promotional video it developed for the Bureau of the Public Debt (BPD).

Core Facts

  • Sage is charging ahead in 2011 after closing out 2010 with 30 percent annual growth and a 25 percent increase in staff.
  • Sage will supply integrated communications services for the following clients:
    • U.S. Israel Science and Technology Foundation (USISTF) -- Sage will provide strategic counsel for economic development reports, oversee a website facelift and produce a quarterly newsletter for USISTF, a nonprofit organization that manages cooperation between U.S. and Israel governments, industries, and academia to maximize the contribution of technology to economic growth.
    • T-Mobile Government Solutions -- Sage will provide B2G and B2B print and online advertising services, as well as develop marketing collateral for sales and tradeshow events for T-Mobile's Government Division, which provides comprehensive communications solutions for federal, state and local governments.
    • Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) -- Working within ODMP's existing CMS platform, Sage completely redesigned this website to better enable ODMP to fulfill its mission to honor fallen law enforcement heroes and connect their families with available resources. The new site launched during National Police Week.
  • Sage's expertise spans across numerous industries, which lends itself to a mix of complex communications strategies and integrated brand management services that reach a diverse group of stakeholders -- from citizens to government agencies to emerging tech startups to Fortune 500 companies.
  • On the heels of a successful year, Sage received a Silver Telly Award for a video it produced for the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt, "Montana Jones and the Raiders of the Forgotten Bonds," which was designed to raise public awareness of matured, unredeemed bonds and to promote treasuryhunt.gov.
  • Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards annually honor local, regional, and cable television commercials, video and film productions, and web videos from advertising agencies, production companies and television stations.
