After a year-long hiatus, the DSVC Dallas Show is back and in person, and Spire has landed six pieces in the highly-regarded show—the most in the agency’s history. This year marks the 53rd DSVC Dallas Show, which will take place at the Fashion Industry Gallery on Saturday, June 4, 2022.

The Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC) was founded in 1957 as the Dallas/Fort Worth Art Directors Club. In 1975, the Club officially changed its name to The Dallas Society of Visual Communications—a change that coincided with the emergence of Dallas/Fort Worth as a center of accomplishment in advertising, design, filmmaking, and numerous other facets of visual communication. Over the years, the DSVC has grown to become one of the largest independent clubs of its kind.

The DSVC consists of designers, writers, photographers, illustrators, broadcast producers, and the many vendors and suppliers who support them. It seeks to elevate the standard of creative industries and the value that creative professionals add to the commerce and the community at large.

The Dallas Show is the DSVC’s annual professional juried show and competition. It is judged by five nationally recognized creatives from across the country. Judges are asked to select work by category to be included in the show and to award medals, with no persuasion or interference from anyone within the DSVC organization.

The number of pieces selected for inclusion in the Dallas Show is at the sole discretion of the judges, as is the number of pieces that will be included in each category. Bronze, silver, and gold “Light Bulb” medals are awarded to signify the level of excellence that the judges determine a piece to have, and do not represent first, second, or third place in a particular category.

The agency’s record-setting six pieces selected for the show span four different clients and six different categories—from video to print to packaging.

  • Annual Report – Tyler Technologies

“The Dallas Show is one of the most prestigious creative competitions around,” said Jason James, Associate Creative Director. “For a B2B agency to have six pieces selected truly shows the level of overall creativity Spire is delivering in the Dallas creative community.”
