Agency: Duffy & Partners, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Agency website:

Creative Director: Joe Duffy

Art Director: Ken Sakurai & Carly Wright

Design Director: Joseph Duffy

Published: March, 2015

Short rationale: Meals on Wheels America is the oldest and largest national organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based senior nutrition programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior hunger and isolation. Duffy & Partners created a new brand identity, including logo design, typography, iconography, co-branding for other programs and state associations, promotional items and collateral.

"This new identity symbolizes the power found in people coming together—a forward movement—where the wheels of urgency generate an energy that is central to the very essence of the organization, just as the 'M' and 'W' are essential to the most beloved and recognized name that Meals and Wheels evokes," said Joe Duffy, Creative Director at Duffy & Partners. "In my 30 years in this business, I have never been more proud to extend our hand in using the power of design to contribute to the enrichment of lives for so many.”

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: The goal of the campaign was to educate the consumer on the complex process of making Jagermeister. We decided to showcase that it’s made from exactly 56 ingredients. We brought this to life by making each execution from exactly 56 parts. Our approach to the campaign and product were one and the same, taking our time to craft something extraordinary with the best illustrators around. The final three executions were painted as Out-Of-Home in major metropolitan cities across the country. The client loved the final product so much that we devised a multi-city tour for the installations so that people can experience, first-hand how much love, craft and detail went into making each installation.

Droga5: Clinton Foundation ‘Not There’

Brand: Clinton Foundation

Title(s): Not There

Agency: Droga5

Agency website:

Creative Chairman: David Droga

Vice Chairman: Andrew Essex

Chief Creative Officer: Ted Royer

Executive Creative Director: Kevin Brady

Creative Director: Casey Rand, Karen Land Short

Art Director: Inna Kofman

Copywriter: Colin Lord

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: On International Women’s Day, the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project engaged in a collaborative effort to raise awareness that women are “not there” yet on issues of gender equality. For a full day, the media landscape was eerily devoid of women, and the public will be directed to to learn why.

NOT THERE, which was created in collaboration with award-winning agency Droga5, coincides with the release of the No Ceilings Full Participation Report, a 20-year data driven review on the status of women and girls since 1995, when Secretary Clinton called on the international community to ensure that “women’s rights are human rights.” At viewers are able to see the facts on gender equality in full focus and are encouraged to learn more and explore the interactive series of data visualizations created by No Ceilings.

Condé Nast, for the first time in history, removed the cover images on Vogue, Glamour, SELF, Allure, Teen Vogue, W, and Brides and direct readers to to learn about gender equality. On Clear Channel Outdoor’s Times Square billboard, the largest digital ad display in North America, Beats by Dre removed images of women and directed tourists from around the world to visit Invaluable advertisements from Unilever brands Dove and TRESemmé, Under Armour, kate spade new york, the New York City Ballet, and many more removed women and direct audiences to Additionally, the NOT THERE campaign and No Ceilings data will be featured in Snapchat's newly launched "Discover" platform as a day-long takeover of Snapchat's "Snap Channel." And, iHeartMedia radio stations across the country will launch an on-air NOT THERE campaign that will play clips by iconic female artists – sans the female vocal track.

Once on, visitors are greeted by the voices of Amy Poehler, Cameron Diaz, Jenny Slate, Padma Lakshmi, and Sienna Miller, who came together in a sharable video to inspire Americans to learn the facts on gender equality and inspire action on a global scale.

Published: March 2015

Short rationale: "They're Good People." It's something we say in the South about quality of character. Good People Brewing Company has that in spades. A year into doing work for Good People they charged Lewis to refresh their entire canned lineup. We followed their 52' Chevy little yellow truck (logo) that has almost single-handedly launched the thriving micro brew industry in Alabama and it led us to brighter more playful colors and bolder, personality driven typography, employed cleanly and consistently throughout the newly launched can design.
