Hinsdale, IL –The Hermes Creative Awards’ 2016 international competition for creative professionals with over 6,000 entries awarded Syscon, Inc. the Gold Award for its recent Ladybug Campaign. Syscon clients received a postcard and a mousepad with a colorful ladybug on a blade of grass that is against a bright blue sky with the caption: “Syscon stands out from all the rest! Call us for all your computer and tech needs.” An email and printed advertisement were also part of the campaign.

“We wanted to create something that our clients could smile at, while still being informative,” explains Catherine Wendt, Syscon President. “Since we are always on call, we needed a fresh way to make sure clients know how to get hold of us 24/7/365. With warmer weather finally on its way, we thought a Happy Spring message would be very welcome. This is why the postcard was developed – our contact information on the back with the bright colors and ladybug on the front.”
