TDC Receives Top Award for Independent School Website

Agency garners Gold Communicator Award for Burgundy Farm Country Day School branding work

Washington, DC, May 14, 2020—David Franek, TDC president and chief creative officer, announced today that the agency earned a 2020 Gold Award of Excellence from the Communicator Awards, an international program honoring outstanding work in marketing.

The award recognized TDC’s website design for Burgundy Farm Country Day School, an independent Pre-K to 8th grade school in Alexandria, Va. The website was the centerpiece of a comprehensive repositioning and rebranding campaign that infused Burgundy’s marketing tools with greater visual appeal and targeted messaging to grow interest in the school’s unique values, facilities, and offerings.

“This award is a testament to not only our creative and account management teams but to the Burgundy staff as well,” said Franek. “Great creative work is the result of great teamwork, and everyone involved in the development of the website deserves credit.”
