Cheers, Creative Enthusiasts,

I am writing you here from Giant Leaps Creative today filled with gratitude and glee! I am absolutely honored and humbled to recently find out that a podcast website design that I created last year won a Silver Award of Distinction in the “Digital – Podcasts” category under the “General – Lifestyle” section. It is hard to describe the feeling of utter amazement and elation when we learn that our hard work has paid off in recognition from respected leaders in the field via an award. But I can tell you, it feels fantastic! I highly respect the Communicator Awards and what they are doing for design firms and agencies, recognizing our achievements and advances in design. I am humbled to share the exhilaration of receiving this award along with the other incredibly talented agencies and firms, especially the Gold Award of Excellence recipients. Big huge congratulations to all of the winners of the 24th Annual Communicator Awards!

No one does it alone! Extra special thanks to co-collaborators, Troy Young of Travel Life Media for his sound engineer work, and Cat Knott for her excellent website skills. I literally could not have done it without you and your amazing expertise, perseverance, and talent. Filled with so much gratitude for you as part of my amazing team of professionals!
