Skiver Advertising Wins 14 Awards at 2011 Addy Awards Ceremony

The SoCal Advertising Agency Grabbed Truckload of Awards in Traditional and Digital Categories

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Skiver Advertising, an "uncomplicated" Southern California advertising agency known for integrating effective digital and traditional advertising under one roof, made its mark on the 23rd annual OC Addy Award ceremony this year by winning an amazing 14 of the coveted awards -- nine silvers and four bronzes.

The general wisdom at Skiver Advertising in Newport Beach, California, is that the best campaigns are the ones that focus on delivering results, not on winning awards -- an approach that has landed the firm more than its share of big-name national accounts. But when advertising is able to achieve stellar results and also win the praise and attention of peers, that's a feat worth celebrating.

"It's awesome to know that your work is respected, and it's been great to watch the team that worked so hard for our clients to have the opportunity to step into the limelight," says Jeremy Skiver, CEO of Skiver Advertising. "We're proud of the work we do on behalf of clients. The awards are just gravy, but 14 Addy Awards -- that's a lot of gravy!"

The burgeoning agency has wowed more than just the industry; a roster of impressive clients are also singing Skiver's praises for integrating traditional and digital advertising to drive effective messaging with a singular strategic focus. The award-winning ad agency works with industry giants like T-Mobile, Targus and Kangaroo Express.

As traditional and digital advertising have gotten more complicated with new technologies and increasing fragmentation, Skiver takes complex advertising problems, solves them, and delivers solutions in an uncomplicated way. The firm is known for creating successful advertising campaigns that revolve around simple messaging that resonates with real people. Of course, "simple" doesn't mean "expected" or "vanilla." The seasoned veterans on board at Skiver Advertising challenge clients' conventional thinking and champion new ideas to breathe life into existing campaigns and win customers with fresh concepts for brand-new ones.
