Award-winning collaborations…

Telling your story

Moonsail North’s team members are passionate about executing strategic campaigns that help clients achieve their goals and crafting creative projects that tell a compelling story. While our collaborative working relationship with our clients is what makes our work so meaningful to us, we are honored that our campaigns have earned regional and national awards. Here’s a sampling of our award-winning projects.

Branding + Marketing

Elizabeth Abdnour Law Logo

Mid-Michigan Creative Alliance
Silver ADDY, Logo

This logo’s mountain imagery—reflecting the strength and empowerment this law firm provides to its clients—also contains an E and A for the law firm name. The dark plum color conveys the firm’s bold, creative problem-solving approach to achieving justice for its clients, and the triangular shape represents the three-point tagline: Experienced. Empowering. Empathetic. See the logo in action

DataZone Logo

Mid-Michigan Creative Alliance
Bronze ADDY, Logo

Our team loves tackling brand identity projects for clients. We’re grateful for the challenge from Bay Area-based Santa Clara County Office of Education to develop a fresh logo for their educational analytics platform that uses powerful data integration to drive student performance. Look at the logo in action

Moonsail North Brochure

Public Relations Society of America, Orange County chapter
PROTOS Award of Excellence, Collateral Materials

As we embarked on our milestone fifth year, we developed a brochure to showcase our rebrand and services in a memorable way – and to demonstrate to clients the power of high-impact, creative collateral. The final result was a highly tactile and discoverable experience through a series of seven un-bound square cards that show the progression of the moon’s phases when laid together, just as our services fit together to provide a full suite of storytelling mediums.

Educare California at Silicon Valley Illustrated Brochure

Ragan Communications
Nonprofit PR Award, Print Publication

In brainstorming how to showcase the impact of a new early childhood education center, #TeamMoonsail developed a “day in the life” creative publication inspired by a children’s book. We were thrilled to see it nationally recognized, earning an honorable mention from PR Daily of Ragan Communications’ Nonprofit PR awards in the print publication category. Check out the brochure

Blooming Botanicals Brochure

Mid-Michigan Creative Alliance
Bronze ADDY, Logo

We’re proud to support the work of organizations of all sizes and at all stages. #TeamMoonsail collaboratively developed this visual-forward sales brochure for small business startup Blooming Botanicals. We set out to highlight their unique herbal infusions, focusing on the raw ingredients—lavender, turmeric and black pepper—that make their product stand out. The vibrant colors echo the brand’s logo, and grab customers’ attention at fairs and storefronts where these brochures are displayed.

Public Relations + Research

CPAN Survey Instrument

Public Relations Society of America, Central Michigan chapter
PACE Excellence Award, Research

There’s a reason you see Storytelling + Strategy etched onto our front door, before you even walk into our office. We understand the important role research plays in a marketing and public relations strategy. As part of our issue management for a statewide consumer advocacy group fighting the erosion of protections that threaten Michigan drivers, we worked with our market researcher to conduct a statewide poll of 800 likely Michigan voters. Those insights helped us refine and hone our messaging. Our data-driven strategy was recognized with a PACE Award of Excellence. See the poll results

Coalition Management and Reenergizing Campaign

Public Relations Society of America, Orange County chapter
PACE Excellence Award, Organizational Relations

Moonsail North earned a PACE Award of Excellence from the Central Michigan chapter of the Public Relations Society of America for the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault organizational relations campaign we developed and executed. Energizing member organizations to tackle strategic advocacy campaigns was vital to allow CPAN to continue to fight for Michigan drivers and auto accident victims.
