LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mission, a managed services and consulting company for Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced that the Mission brand – developed in collaboration with Solid Branding – has won the 2019 Gold ADDY Award for Brand Identity from the American Advertising Federation / Silicon Valley. The Mission logo also earned a Silver ADDY.

The annual American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY award, is among the industry’s largest creative competitions, recognizing and rewarding the “creative spirit of excellence in advertising.” Solid Branding had a particularly successful showing at the 2019 Silicon Valley competition: the agency earned seven wins – including the Gold ADDY for Mission’s brand identity and a Silver ADDY for the Mission logo – further establishing the firm’s place among the best branding agencies in Silicon Valley.

Mission debuted in October 2018 as the unified brand combined from the mergers of AWS Advanced Consulting Partners Reliam, Stratalux, and G2 Tech Group. Operating under the ethos “Mission – Let’s Achieve Yours,” the brand identity and supporting visual elements are built to communicate the managed AWS provider’s dedication to understanding each client’s specific cloud requirements and long-term vision – and then taking on those challenges as Mission’s own.

“The Mission brand perfectly embodies the commitment each of us feels to pursuing and executing our clients’ cloud ambitions, and to making it our mission to see those goals continually realized,” said Andy Jolls, CMO, Mission. “We thank Solid Branding for its superb work in helping debut the Mission brand identity to such acclaim, and congratulate the agency on its well-deserved award wins from the American Advertising Federation. We look forward to future work between our organizations.”

“Receiving a 2019 Gold ADDY Award for the Mission rebrand means that the work is considered among the very best branding work being done in Silicon Valley,” said Alfredo Muccino, Founder and Executive Creative Director, Solid Branding. “Given that the Valley is known for its innovation and creativity, we are humbled to be singled out for this honor. We worked very closely with the Mission team on the rebrand, and receiving this award is a credit to Mission’s trust and their spirit of collaboration. I believe that good work is only possible when an agency works with great clients. Thank you, Mission for being a wonderful client!”
