(Arlington, VA) – QM Design Group has taken home two prestigious ADDYS from the American Advertising Awards for their work on John Eric + Trevor Moore team projects. Entered in the Sales Marketing and Sales Promotion categories respectively, advertising initiatives from the Towns on Grove development project based in Silver Spring, MD, and the John Eric Home magazine based in Arlington, VA, both garnered bronze awards.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting nearly 35,000 entries every year in local AAF Club (Ad Club) competition. It recognizes and rewards the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. At the second tier, local ADDY winners compete with winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. QM Design Group won the awards out of the Los Angeles district competition.

“We are elated to have been recognized with these wins,” says Hillary Broadwater, president of QM Design Group. “Both projects were incredible to work on and showcase a wide variety of design of which we are incredibly proud.”

The first ADDY was awarded for advertising and marketing work done on the Towns on Grove development located in Silver Spring, MD. This project, developed by Artspace and represented by the John Eric + Trevor Moore team based out of Compass Real Estate, combined both workforce and market rate housing. The second ADDY was awarded for QM Design Group’s work on the John Eric Home, fall 2020, magazine issue. The magazine is in its ninth year and has thus captured over 60 million views worldwide.

“Our team is very excited to hear of these wins,” says John Eric, managing partner of the John Eric + Trevor Moore team. “We are thrilled for two reasons,” he continued, “the first being that Hillary Broadwater was recognized for her tremendous work on our projects. The second reason is that we are highly committed to our all of our projects and are incredibly happy to see them recognized as well.”
