Metro Atlanta Digital Marketing Agency Recognized for Trio of Campaigns Created on Behalf of Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies

Atlanta, August 8, 2019 – In May 2019, the winners of the 25th Annual Communicator Awards were officially announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. With over 6,000 entries received from across the US and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals.  2019 winners who received Communicator Awards include ESPN Films, Forbes Media, PepsiCo, WWE, and Metro Atlanta’s own Woodall Creative Group. Recognized with three Awards of Distinction for work created on behalf of its long-term client – Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies – the digital marketing agency shows no signs of slowing. It’s already at work on its newest round of award-worthy work for the early childhood education provider with a national presence. 

“Winning ONE Communicator Award is a big accomplishment – but earning three tells a story of our capability to develop captivating campaigns,” said Jeffrey Love, Creative Director for Woodall Creative Group.  “While each award served a slightly different purpose, the collective talent between our creative team and the marketing department at KRK worked together to hammer-out details that targets the market effectively.  Developing new ways to reach the parents and excite them about their child’s potential is the goal! We have to let the parents know they are not alone in the decisions they face with their young children.  Through the course of our 20+ year relationship with KRK, we have accomplished impressive results, and we will continue to do so.””

The three campaigns recognized with a Communicator Award of Distinction include:

  • Camp Kaleidoscope 360 – a fully integrated business-to-consumer campaign designed to promote Kids ‘R’ Kids’ 2019 Summer Camp through online video, comprehensive social media campaign, digital banner ads, posters, counter cards, direct mail, logo and more. CLICK HERE to View the Full Campaign.
  • Child’s Best Interests at Heart – a fully integrated business-to-consumer campaign designed to promote Kids ‘R’ Kids’ Infant, Toddler and Preschool Programs.  Various marketing elements included online video, social media graphics, banner ads, flip book, brochures, postcards, flyers, print ads, incentive coupons and more.

  • School-Age Program – a fully integrated business-to-consumer campaign designed to promote Kids ‘R’ Kids’ After School Program for school age children. A full color 8.5″ x 6″ multi-page brochure set the theme through positive messaging and doodle art. That theme was also expanded to include a multitude of support and campaign materials such as posters, digital media, stickers, incentive coupons and more. CLICK HERE to View the Full Campaign.

Award-Winning Digital Marketing Agency Brings Home Several W3 and Davey Awards for Campaigns Created on Behalf of Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies

On the cusp of the release of the 2019 back-to-school campaign on behalf of its long-term client – Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, Atlanta-based Woodall Creative Group is proud to announce that they were recently honored with W3 Awards from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA) for last year’s fall enrollment campaign. The award-winning, full-service marketing agency was recognized with two Silver W3 Awards – one for a social media campaign and the other for a video campaign created to support the 2018 “Kids ‘R Growing” fall enrollment program. WCG was also the recipient of two Davey Awards – including a Best in Show for a brochure to promote the Kids ‘R’ Kids School Age Program and a Silver Award for the overall Business-to-Consumer School Age Program integrated campaign.

“It’s always so much fun to work on projects with a client that not only loves what they do but can still get excited about it after more than 30 years,” said Tracy Woodall, President of Woodall Creative Group. “That excitement is not only contagious, but it comes through in the marketing campaigns we create with them. Every project we undertake with the team at Kids ‘R’ Kids is a true collaboration – as it has been for the last 25 years that we’ve been proud to work with this industry leader and watch them grow in their vision, scope and reach throughout the United States. We mean it when we say these awards are just as much theirs as they are ours. On behalf of Woodall Creative Group and Kids ‘R’ Kids International, we are once again honored by these prestigious recognitions from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.”

Both the Davey Awards and the W3 Awards are judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.

Woodall Creative Group has been recognized with several W3 and Davey Awards in recent years, including a highly coveted Gold for the “Smart Choice, Smarter Child” campaign the agency created on behalf of Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies.

“Big wins like these only serve to fuel our creativity,” said Jeffrey Love, Creative Director for Woodall Creative Group. “Award or not, our team is always pushing to outdo last year’s campaign. We might take a moment to pat ourselves on the back, but then we’re back to asking the question ‘how can we do it better?’ I’m confident that our 2019 Fall Enrollment Campaign is already shaping up to be even better than last year. This year’s campaign relies heavily on innovation with engaging elements of social media marketing, video marketing and more for a fully integrated program that we believe will really get people talking and – most importantly – considering Kids ‘R’ Kids as one of the best options to meet their children’s early education and after school programming needs.”
