TWO FIRSTS FOR ONE: LOCAL MARKETING COMPANY SCHIPPER DESIGN

RACKS UP LOGO AND WEBSITE AWARDS AT PRESTIGOUS CALFEST MARKETING CONVENTION FOR THEIR WORK ON THE 1st ANNUAL CONDOR CLASSIC

(San Juan Bautista, CA) – March 17, 2009 – After a decade spent in the marketing and design business, Kathy Schipper has developed a knack for recognizing a brilliant idea when she sees it. With it’s California countryside charm and perfect climate, all that the 1st Annual Condor Classic bike race needed was a little help in the marketing department to attract the necessary out of town riders, and it was destined to be an attractive, successful event.

Schipper’s intuition and marketing skills paid off in droves. With over 500 riders turning out to ride the verdant rolling terrain of San Benito County, not only was awareness of the timeless beauty and recreational opportunities available in the County raised to new levels, but so too were vital funds for the non-profit Pinnacles Partnership. Now Schipper’s company, Schipper Design+, has earned two 1st Place marketing awards from a prestigious trade organization for their pro-bono work on the event.

In February, the CalFest Convention awarded its top honors for Web Site and Logo Design to the San Juan Bautista based agency. Now in it’s 15th year, the CalFest Celebration Awards honor standout event management and marketing companies throughout California and Nevada. Out of the large pool of companies nominated, Schipper Design+ took home two of the twelve categories awarded.

Nominated materials were judged on originality, concept, style, graphics, and production. The Condor Classic website is undeniably attractive: Vibrant photographs from the event are framed in by the rich tones and imagery of a sunset ride, and the Condor Classic logo leaps off of the page with it’s iconic namesake soaring out over the silhouetted spires of its Pinnacles National Monument home, all set against a blazing sunset and tagged with a shimmering silver font.

Schipper is thrilled about the overall success of the event, and the awards. “Our goal as a part of the tourism committee was to reach bike riders from around Northern California, and especially the Bay Area,” said Schipper. With the informational rack card distribution network, and the website, the committee more than reached their mark. “We had over 300 more riders than we were told to expect as a first year event!”

“It really is wonderful to be acknowledged by professional festival and event directors. They know what works. To be judged by industry standards and to win is real validation that as designers, we hit the mark,” said Schipper.
