The event drew an audience of 200 A/E/C professionals, and guests enjoyed food, drinks and live music and had an opportunity to while view all awards submissions, before the winners were announced. The BRD marketing team decided to go BIG this year with an oversized 11″x 4.75″ card, that featured a hand drawn design of 4 snow globes, representing the unique characteristics of each BRD office location throughout Texas. The team consisted of civil designer Dane Edwards as the artist, construction manager Kelly Daacon who digitized the design, and marketing director Amy Hageman, who lead the team with tight timelines and a modest budget.
