FUEL Honored at ADAI’s 60th Design Exhibition

Building upon a strong showing in last year’s Art Directors Association of Iowa’s ADAI Design Exhibition, FUEL brought home more recognition for the Eastern Iowa design community at the 60th Design Exhibition held April 27th in Des Moines.

“ADAI is an organization centered more around our end of the marketing/communication industry (both functionally and philosophically) than any other organization in Iowa,” said founder John Moes.

Judges recognized FUEL with three EXCELLENCE Awards. The entries represented a good cross section of our firm’s core design work, and a range of clients including a non-profit, an industrial multinational and a startup. More specifically:

“Each year, this Exhibition serves as an opportunity to gauge ourselves against some really outstanding firms and individuals who work in a more design-aware region of the Midwest,” said Moes.
