WSA Wins Gold and Silver at AAF Columbus ADDY Awards 2021

March 5, 2021 • aaitken

Three WSA projects won ADDY Awards.

We’re so excited to share that three of our designs have been recognized by AAF Columbus with American Advertising Awards (ADDYs). Each project successfully integrates environmental graphics, branding, architecture, and interior design to elevate the experience of the space. The winners are:

Adirondack Fishing Lodge 
Out-of-Home Installations

We partnered with the Columbus Dispatch to design the feature exhibit at the 2020 Spring Home and Garden Show, the largest Dispatch event of the year. It features an A-frame lodge made of reclaimed Ohio barn wood and a nature path that guides visitors through a living mountain environment. The team designed a logo, brand standards, signage, and interactive media placed carefully throughout the exhibit to immerse guests.


Brick House Blue
ADDY Silver
Out-of-Home Multiple Installations

We worked with Brick House Blue to transform its second co-working location into a branded environment that highlights the company values, infuses the space with energy, and supports a healthy community culture. Environmental graphics installations are featured in high-activity areas such as the lobby, open co-working, and kitchenette. The design includes a biophilic installation, raised acrylic signage, a hanging punched metal logo, neon tube lighting, and a framed gallery wall.


The Forge Short North, 3rd Floor Office
ADDY Silver
Out-Of-Home Multiple Installations

This innovative workplace for The Forge’s software development teams features a makerspace, collaborative team rooms, and custom environmental graphics that inspire creativity. The Forge brand is boldly represented with a large biophilic installation and industrial metal sign, set in to geographic millwork that wraps around the space. The hand-crafted aesthetic of the piece reinforces the mission of The Forge and creates visual energy within the workplace.


Thank you so much to AAF Columbus, the jury, and our design partners. Check out all the 2021 ADDY Award winners here!
