GPJ: Bringing Home the Gold (and Silver, and Bronze…)

Things move pretty quickly around here, and we usually like it that way. But now and then something shocks us back into the realization that what we get to do every day is pretty incredible.

Right now is one of those moments. In recent weeks, GPJ has received nearly two dozen awards from six different programs, recognizing everything from our creative design to the agency itself.

So before we dig into the next creative brief or start building the next experience, let’s just take a moment, and look at what we’ve built together.
