StoneyCreek Wins Gold PPAI Pyramid Award! (12/3/19)
StoneyCreek was recognized with the highest-level award in the promotional products industry. Winning in the category for “Customized Non-Catalog Product”, the piece recognized was a custom phone holder. This piece was designed for a company who achieved a rare feat of being a privately held startup company valued over $1 billion also known as a “unicorn”. The unicorn design was etched into the stone surface with no color fill for a subtle look. The goal was to have a piece that sat on the desk with the company logo and a subtle, yet strong, message of its new “unicorn” status.
