The 54th annual Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC) Dallas Show took place at Gilley’s Dallas on June 17th. Spire had four pieces make the show, and received a prestigious Silver “lightbulb” award that night.

Just 76 pieces were selected for display at this year’s Dallas Show, with four of those pieces supplied by Spire. The work was for the Slack Davis Sanger “Slacktoberfest” event in the categories of Invitation, Direct Mail, Iconography, and Campaign. This marks the second year in a row that Spire had pieces selected for display at this esteemed design community showcase.

When the judging was complete, a prestigious 36 awards were given out throughout the night. B2B agency Spire took home a Silver for Integrated Campaign for the Slacktoberfest event. This marks the second year in a row that spire took home a coveted Dallas Show lightbulb.

“The Dallas Show rewards the finest design in our region,” said Associate Creative Director Jason James. “Receiving a bulb for the second year in a row proves our shop continues to bring top-tier design to our B2B clients.”

The 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.
