Bend, OR (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- tbd, a full-service advertising agency located in Central Oregon, today announced that it received multiple awards at the annual Drake Awards, including “Best of Show,” an honor which it has received seven of the last eight years.

“While the ultimate measure of success for us is how well our clients perform in the marketplace, it’s also extremely rewarding to receive recognition from our peers at awards shows like The Drakes,” said Paul Evers, president and creative director of tbd advertising agency. “Each year the depth of talent in the region grows exponentially. The quality of the work entered this year by all of the various agencies was extraordinary— the tbd team is incredibly honored to have received ‘Best of Show.’”

“The Old Mill District has been immensely pleased with all aspects of the creation of our campaign with tbd. It has been a spirited process with collaboration, creativity, and integrity. We are proud to be working with such an amazing agency and honored by the award,” said Noelle Fredland, director of marketing for the Old Mill District.

The agency also received 10 Gold Awards, five Silver Awards, one Bronze Award and one special Judges Honors award for its work in multiple categories.
