The results are in! Wilmington Design Co. was recently recognized with four graphic design awards at the 60TH GDUSA DESIGN AWARDS™. Over the last 60 years, Graphic Design USA has presented competitions that focus on areas of growth and opportunity for creative professionals. WDC’s team of talented designers and developers were recognized for their outstanding creative work across the logo design and web design Industry.

Carolina Pick-N-Pull, Neiman Market, South by Sean Brock, and Channel: Powered by Live Oak earned the 2023 awards, making this the eleventh year the prestigious Graphic Design USA group has recognized Wilmington Design Company. The Carolina Pick-N-Pull logo project’s main goal was to create a logo reflecting the company’s new multi-location presence and its commitment to providing quality auto parts at affordable prices. The new logo features a modern, geometric design reminiscent of the patches worn on uniforms from the auto industry.

For the Neiman Market project, the client tasked our team with designing a logo that encapsulated Patty and Erik Nieman’s vision while leaving a lasting impression. The logo needed to convey the feeling of a premium service that had a bold and established look. The market is also located at a former Gulf Oil station, so we took into consideration the signage that was currently in place when designing their new logo.

Working with Sean Brock and his team over the years has presented us with some of the coolest projects to date, including his newest endeavor South by Sean Brock. The objective of this project was to familiarize individuals with Chef Sean Brock’s innovative Insanely Delicious cornbread chips and offer consumers a convenient platform for purchasing them. We crafted a straightforward and visually appealing one-page website that effectively showcased the delectable new product.

Our partnership with Live Oak Bank has proven to be a catalyst for growth and innovation, providing us with many new opportunities. Notably, we seized the chance to expand Channel: Powered by Live Oak into a standalone website. The site serves as a showcase, spotlighting not only the impressive facility but also the services provided to entrepreneurs who have found support through Live Oak Bank.

Graphic Design USA has been honoring great design through its national competition for more than five decades. This year’s 60th annual design competition honored outstanding work of all kinds and the best designs of the year — in print, web, packaging, interactive, video, and more. A record 8,000+ entries across the US were submitted, and only 10 percent of entries were recognized.’

I was really excited to see that 4 of our projects were recognized this year”, said Bill Hunter president and founder of WDC. “We are thrilled to be included again this year among so many cutting-edge creative & digital marketing firms.
