Beverly, Massachusetts: Judging has been completed for the 27th Annual Communicator Awards and we are delighted our work has been selected by The Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts. With over 6,000 entries received from across the United States and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications, professionals.

“The work entered in this year’s Communicator Awards is even more impressive than in seasons’ past," noted Eva McCloskey, managing director of the AIVA. She added, “On behalf of the Academy, I would like to thank all of this season’s entrants for their willingness to produce such boundary-pushing, effective and outstanding work."

When COVID-19 struck, the founders of Pyxis saw an opportunity for both their business and the community. They owned a large packaging company that had been idled due to the pandemic. They were also aware of a dire shortage of PPE within the healthcare system. They quickly retooled and were soon producing easy to assemble, recyclable face shields.

With time of the essence, they reached out to Communications, Ink to see if we could help them create a brand, ecommerce website and publicity around their face shields. We quickly turned around a custom logo that leveraged the “green” aspect of the shield, executed a socially-distanced photoshoot and activated a new website as well as social media. In just a few weeks they were taking orders for their shields and protecting essential workers.

“It is especially gratifying to have been recognized for our work during the pandemic. Like all businesses we had to quickly adapt to the new landscape—working remotely and figuring out ways to create virtually. Pyxis Face Shields is an example of the powerful partnerships we enjoy creating with our clients.” Cara Hutchins, Founder & CEO of Communications, Ink.
