Bringing home some heavy metal for our clients.

We don’t think of ourselves as super fancy here at Lodge, but we’re always happy to throw on a tie when the time is right. And the time was definitely right at this year’s ADDY Awards ceremony, a swanky little soiree hosted at historic Union Station.

Our crew savored some hot conversation and cold cocktails before a ceremony that presented some our city’s best creative work. We were happy to be there, and even happier to walk away with our arms full of beautiful (and HEAVY!) ADDY Awards.

Lodge brought home three gold awards: one for our very own Lil Book to Beat Boredom, and two for the videos we created for Conner Prairie’s recently reimagined 1859 Balloon Voyage. We also snagged five silver awards: one for another Balloon Voyage video, one for our Conner Prairie “Dreams are Born Here” radio campaign, and yet another for the Conner Prairie website. Our new website for IU Maurer School of Law also won a silver award, as well as our work for the BEAST food truck. They even sent us home with a delicious bottle of bourbon.

Our three gold-winning entries will advance to the next round of awards, a district competition with other winners. From there, these pieces could go on to the third and final round, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

We feel lucky every day to work with our clients, and we were proud to bring home the ADDY’s bacon, so to speak, because it reflects the big dreams our clients have, and the considerable trust they place in us every day.

Our haul—and the fun party that came along with it—were almost as beautiful as spending a day at Conner Prairie, and nearly as tasty as biting into a BEAST burger.

For a night like this, we’ll gladly wear a tie.
