DAC Patient Recruitment Services, an Imperial company and provider of patient recruitment and retention for global clinical trials, earned two international Hermes Creative Awards for writing and design this year, including a Gold Award and the highest Hermes honor—the Platinum Award.
The company’s winning platinum entry was the DAC Creative Magazine, written and designed by the DAC creative services team. Available in electronic and print format, the portfolio publication features articles about DAC’s creative infrastructure and team philosophy, as well as clinical trial advertising and brand samples categorized by clinical indication.
DAC’s gold winner, the Q1 2014 edition of Imperial Insider, was lauded for the depth and breadth of its content, which included probing articles on healthcare reform, women in biotechnology and other topics of interest to the clinical trials industry. Imperial Insideris the quarterly newsletter of the Imperial Family of Companies and is a collaborative effort between the DAC creative services and Imperial marketing teams.
As Brandon Bissell, director of marketing at Imperial said, “This is a win not only for DAC, but also for the Imperial Family of Companies as a whole. DAC's creative services team is a strong component of Imperial's overall marketing group and produces award-winning work as proven here.”
