Local Ad Agency Wins Award for Murals at Unisys Call Center
Augusta-based advertising agency Wier/Stewart has won a National Silver American Advertising Award for murals designed for Unisys’ call center downtown.
The agency worked with local interior designer Tzara Harper of the Augusta architecture firm Cheatham Fletcher Scott and Unisys Transitions Director Raquel Rivera to create large-scale wall murals in the old Fort Discovery building.
The designs are based on Unisys core principles and feature themes such as Laser Focus, Absolute Integrity, External Obsession and Best or Nothing.
“A lot of times you’re just sitting at a desk on the phone,” Harper said. “That whole idea of going to work and having a residential feel–even a coffee house feel–is what people like.”
The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries per year.
After winning Gold American Advertising Awards at the local and district levels, Wein/Stewarts’ work advanced to a national competition in New Orleans on June 10, where it won a Silver Award.
“It worked out wonderfully,” Harper said. “It’s a completely different world for Augusta.”
