We approach every project with the confidence that we are creating award winning work. With each website, video, business card, photo, or any other project we tackle, we do so passionately, thoughtfully and with great ambition. Every once in awhile, we actually do win awards for our work. What kind of award winning work could we create for you? Here are a few examples.
Stroud Safety - “Designed By Racers”
2021 Silver Davey Award for Sports Video Campaign/Series
Stroud Safety has established themselves as a leader in producing high-quality safety equipment for the racing industry. To showcase their racer-designed product line, Innovations developed a video series aimed at educating racers on the variety of products available, while putting emphasis on the fact that the products are designed by the same athletes that put them to use every day at the track.
The “Designed By Racers” series is emblematic of the ethos that the Stroud brand embodies; they know their jobs are dangerous. So when they design products, they do so under the looming reality that any accident at the track is a life or death situation. It was Innovations’ goal to help educate other racers on the efforts Stroud takes to create a safer racing experience for all racers, including those who use the very equipment they design.
Groves Electrical Services - “Who We Are”
2021 Silver W3 Award for Promotional/Branding Video
Groves Electrical Services has been a stalwart in the electrical service industry for 50 years. Beginning with just four employees and a lofty goal from founder William Groves in 1972, Groves Electrical Services was born from a set of core values they hold true to this day: Integrity, Safety, Communication, Professionalism, Customer Satisfaction & Teamwork.
To get to a better understanding of what fueled these core values, the Innovations crew interviewed the Groves team to get to the root of their passion. “Who We Are” tells a story of passion and purpose, and it serves as the guiding light for the difficult work they perform, often under duress, to bring about positive change for the communities they serve.
BTC - "Faster Speeds + Better Service"
2019 Gold W3 Award for Branded Entertainment Series
2019 Silver Davey Award for Online Video Series
Bringing Technology Closer (BTC) is a local voice, television and internet service provider. In an effort to create a lasting impression in a very competitive market, we launched a video series for the “Internet of Now: Faster Speeds + Better Service” campaign.
Our concept was to create a series of memorable videos that would resonate with potential customers and convey the strength of the company’s internet service by striking a chord with viewers.
This fun and relatable series struck a “cord” with the judges at the W3 Awards, netting us the Gold for a “Branded Entertainment Series.”
Innovations Branding House
Winner: Best Documentary
Louisville's 2018 International Festival of Film
ROADTRIP KY was born on a whim. It was a passion project we began to tell stories we felt were significant, yet not told frequently enough. After completing the first part of the series, we pieced the episodes together in a documentary, with commentary and analysis on how these brands have made themselves known, and how they’ve found continued success. ROADTRIP KY earned top prize for “Best Documentary” at Louisville’s International Festival of Film in 2018.
freight house - Social Media
2018 Silver W3 Award for Social Media Presence for freight house
One area in which we assist with freight house’s marketing is through creating social media content that echoes the distinctive freight house voice and then pairing it with high quality imagery and video of their many artistic dishes and endeavors. The strength, consistency and unique quality of that social media voice was enough to earn us a Silver W3 Award for “Social Media Presence” in 2018.
First Kentucky Bank "Prosper" Series

2017 Silver Davey Award for Campaign Commercial Video Series
2017 Silver Davey Award for Corporate/Public Image Commercials
First Kentucky Bank needed both their brand image and their campaigns to communicate a sense of ‘community spirit’ and a supportive banking experience. Our team devised an entire series of educational content designed to make a customer’s banking experience more manageable and tailored to their knowledge base. This educational content series is known as ‘Prosper’.

2017 Silver Davey Award for Charitable/Not-for-Profit Online Film/Video
The Purchase Area Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center was looking for a way to reach out to women who might be in need of assistance, but who were afraid to take the first step. They wanted to create a video to help alleviate the fear sometimes associated with having to make such a difficult choice.
The Hope, Heal and Grow video was created to tell the story of a fictional victim through one of their methods of treatment, with the hope that it would encourage more women to come forward.
Innovations Branding House Business Cards
2016 Davey Award - Silver Winner in Design/Print
Designer Patrick Valiquette was the mastermind behind the design of our award-winning business cards. Working from an old concept, he was able to bring this 2D/3D conversation piece into the world and turn heads not just in conference rooms, but also at the judges table. He was able to literally bring dimension to our logo by transferring something some would consider mundane, into a work of art.
SmileKidz Postcard Mailer
2016 Davey Award - Silver Winner in Design/Print
SmileKidz Dentistry faced a great challenge when they came to us for help. Not only were they attempting to grow their customer base in a competitive industry in a major market area, but they faced an even taller task than that: get kids excited about the dentist.
Creative Director Austin Madding channeled his inner child and developed a kid-friendly campaign that centered around transforming their doctors into plaque fighting superheros. This included a postcard that would be mailed to current and potential customers. As a result, SmileKidz increased their patient base by more than 30% and Austin picked up an award for his creative ingenuity.
Paducah Cigar Club "Moments"
2016 W3 Award - Silver Winner in Promotional/Branded Video

Creative Director Austin Madding, along with Cinematographer Aaron King, put together an idea for a promotional video that conveyed the true lounge experience to entice new members.
They were able to create a video that communicated the true elegance of the lounge experience in an effort to promote the cigar club membership. “Moments” ultimately helped increase membership and picked up an award for Promotional/Branded Material in the process.
