BASIC Wins 3 Awards at the 2017 OMMA Awards


We’ve been awarded top honors at this year’s MediaPost - 2017 OMMA Awards in NYC. Both our client and internal work was recognized across 4 categories for the second consecutive year.

For over 10 years, The OMMA Awards honor agencies and advertisers that push the potential of digital advertising. This year we’ve been awarded for both our client and internal projects including 3 wins and 2 finalists across 4 categories – Fashion Website, Retail, Website Campaign, and Business-to-Business Website.

“It’s a privilege to be recognized by Mediapost and OMMA Awards for two years in a row,”  said Matt Faulk, BASIC CEO & Executive Creative Director. “I’m proud of both teams at KEEN and Chrome for the work we were able to produce and excited for the internal projects we were able to create.”

Below is the list of awarded projects – complete with a brief summary created by the OMMA Jury.

BASIC Agency Site

Awarded for: Best Website Campaign

“Given its design expertise and impressive client list from Nike to Playstation, it’s no surprise that Basic smacked its latest site redesign out of the park. Like magic, the new site somehow achieves a minimalist feel without ever leaving visitors wanting for engaging content. As one gets sucked deeper and deeper into the site, images, text, and video weave together seamlessly to tell stories big and small. Throughout, the overarching message is that clients’ strategy and design work will be in good hands with Basic.”
