Anthem Worldwide a Triple Winner in 2013 American Package Design Awards

Anthem Worldwide a Triple Winner in 2013 American Package Design Awards 
Awards Honor the Value of Design to Business and Society 
TORONTO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 --  Anthem Worldwide, part of
the brand development practice of Schawk, Inc. (NYSE: SGK), whose
integrated global network provides innovative solutions to
articulate, unify and manage brand impact to create compelling and
consistent brand experiences, announced that its Toronto and New York
offices have been distinguished with three packaging design awards
recognizing the value of design to business and society. 
The 2013 American Package Design Awards is the fastest growing
national competition managed by Graphic Design USA (GDUSA). The
reason is simple yet profound -- marketers are challenged as never
before to convey their messages and promote their brands in an era of
fragmented audiences and global competition. GDUSA has sponsored this
national design competition for five decades and this year's entries
grew to over 1,600 with only a selective 1 in 6 being recognized with
an award. 
According to GDUSA, "Package design and related disciplines are
increasingly the difference maker in the consumer's purchasing
decision. The 2013 American Package Design Awards competition
celebrates well-designed graphics and the power of design to advance
the brand and forge an emotional link with the buyer at the moment of
truth." 
Lor Gold, global chief creative officer of Schawk, Inc., said:
"In-store, a shopper wants to be informed and motivated by packaging.
It's the crucial touchpoint in almost every purchase and repurchase.
Our creative talent at Anthem thinks from the shelf out and
understands that packaging is the purest expression of the brand idea
and the closest point a shopper can get to the brand." 
Janice Jaworski, managing director of Anthem Worldwide's New York
office, said, "Effective package design helps our clients tell
compelling brand stories that resonate. We are thrilled that this
work for our clients has been singled out as examples of excellence
in design." 
AJ Betz, managing director of Anthem Worldwide's Toronto office,
noted, "Recognition by our peers as an industry leader is gratifying.
The American Package Design Awards acknowledges packaging design as
the most powerful medium -- where purchasing decisions are acted
upon." 
In the Food and Beverages category, Anthem Worldwide was awarded a
