Anthem Worldwide Wins Six Silver PAC Leadership Awards Award Honors Excellence In Packaging Design

June 28, 2011

Toronto, Canada

Anthem Worldwide, the strategic design division of Schawk (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 office has been distinguished with six Silver PAC Leadership Awards, which recognize the leaders of packaging and the value of graphic and technical design as well as sustainability best practices.

Anne Dean, managing director of Anthem Worldwide’s Toronto office, said, “To be recognized by our peers as an industry leader is gratifying. The PAC Leadership Awards acknowledge the power of strategic packaging design and world-class execution to influence the consumer’s path-to-purchase. Design drives growth and helps our clients win the battle at the shelf.”

The Packaging Association has been the voice of the Canadian packaging industry since 1950 and has a prestigious history of packaging competitions dating back to 1953. In 2010, the association rebranded as PAC – The Packaging Association in recognition of its expansion into the U.S. while maintaining its deep Canadian roots.

Gary Oakley, creative director of Anthem Worldwide’s Toronto office, said, “Compelling package design helps our clients tell compelling brand stories where it counts most—at the shelf making packaging the brand touchpoint upon which all others ultimately depend. We are thrilled that this work for our clients has been singled out as examples of excellence in design.”
