Vacation time is awesome, wisdom is wonderful and common sense keeps us grounded as we take our well-deserved rest and relaxation. … It’s when we practice a lack of wisdom and demonstrate zero common sense that our vacations become less rejuvenating than we expected, and we wind up needing a vacation from our vacation.

For both awards, the campaign work included renaming the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival to Bravo! Vail, establishing a new logo and redesigning all print collateral, advertising and the Bravo! Vail website.

“The new brand has definitely caught the attention of the public with renewed enthusiasm and is a much better visual representation of the organization. My congratulations and applause go to Hill Aevium for their work on Bravo! Vail,” said James Palermo, Bravo! Vail’s executive director.

“By definition, every brand is unique and should be given a face and voice that’s unlike any other. We were able to accomplish this for the Bravo! Vail organization,” said Pati Martinez, creative director at Hill Aevium. “We look forward to the continued evolution of the creative throughout 2014 and beyond.”
