davey creative agency winner lombardo


Nov. 11, 2021

The Davey Awards, honoring the best small agencies worldwide, has recognized Lombardo with 6 Golds and 1 Silver in the 17th annual international competition.

The Daveys are the largest and most prestigious awards competition exclusively for the “Davids” of creativity. The name refers to the David who defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock.

“We’re proud to represent our clients with creative work among the very best in the industry,” says Rita Lombardo, Principal and Head of Strategy. “Having our concepts and execution recognized at this level demonstrates the quality in our positioning clients for success.”

Lombardo received Gold in the categories of “Best Use of Video” as well as “Hotel/Lodging Website” for the website of sustainable travel client Three Camel Lodge, a five-star luxury eco-lodge in the heart of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. For the sustainable tour operator Nomadic Expeditions, Lombardo earn Gold in the categories of “Copywriting for Websites” and “Travel Websites.” Nomadic Expeditions and Three Camel Lodge share the same CEO, Jalsa Urubshurow, a pioneer of sustainability through travel.

The agency’s branding for low-sugar snack mix Thinful won Gold in “Logo Design” and “Package Design.” Lombardo’s involvement with Thinful began with helping determine what the product offering would be, when all there was to the company was a single key ingredient—a new natural sweetener. From there Lombardo created the name, branding, marketing, and sales tools—helping the product reach more than 1,400 Wal-Mart stores today.

Branding for Panther National, a first‐of‐its‐kind luxury lifestyle golf community in Palm Beach County, earned Silver in “Logo Design.”

“Our team is grateful to have such wonderful clients who give us the opportunity to do such amazing work,” says Rita Lombardo. “The recognition of this competition lets our agency shine, as our campaigns derive strength from big ideas rather than stratospheric media budgets.”

The Davey Awards are sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms that includes Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Microsoft, MTV, Publicis, Sesame Workshops, Yahoo! and many more.
