Contrast & Co. — Annapolis’ hottest brand strategy and design agency — recently won three coveted AIGA 50 Awards, at this biannual recognition of the leading creative projects in the DC area over the last two years.

The awards were given for three brand projects: DarkWebID, an industry-leading cyber-security platform; SNUGZ, a revolutionary new sleep product for sleep apnea patients; and SACUNAS, an emerging national research and marketing powerhouse. These awards come on the heels of four Gold and one Silver medal received at the most recent ADDYs as well.

“We started our agency with the unwavering belief that we could do brand, messaging and identity work on par with anyone else in the world,” says Dharma Pachner, Founder and Creative Director of Contrast & Co. “These awards are a wonderful reminder that we are heading in the right direction. We are thrilled that our work is being recognized at such a high level, and are beyond grateful to our clients, our people and our partners for helping continue to bring our vision to life.”
