Spire Agency has had the honor of serving as Texas’ most-awarded B2B branding agency since 2016. This year, the agency’s previous yearly awards record of 44 from 2022 was broken as Spire brought home an impressive 46 creative awards, remaining  AAF District 10’s most-awarded B2B agency and one of the country’s most-recognized B2B shops.

This year’s accolades, spanning 12 different competitions and representing work from 10 different clients, resulted in one Best of Show, eight Platinum, 12 Gold, 15 Silver, two Bronze, four Honorable Mentions, an impressive consecutive win at the ADDYs for the Extreme Makeover award, and an inaugural AMA Agency of the Year win.

Spire’s account and creative teams brought home some noteworthy hardware of their own, with Julia Cardali named “Young Professional of the Year” by AAF Dallas, Luke Bryant’s selection as “Ad 2 President of the Year” by District 10 of the American Advertising Federation, Alex Flores’ addition to the prestigious 32 Under 32 list by Ad 2 Dallas, and Katie Olivier’s ascension to the 2023 class of shining stars by the Dallas chapter of the American Advertising Federation.

“These industry awards and honors are only possible because our valued clients continue to trust us to do impactful work for their brands,” said Kimberly Tyner, Partner and Chief Creative Officer. “To be recognized for the dedication and effort that goes into the strategic and creative B2B product we deliver for our clients is truly a thrill.”
