At the 2020 Austin AdFed Awards, Foundry512 took home a Silver ADDY for our work on Jägermeister’s Release Your Darke Spirit campaign, and we couldn’t be more proud. As a full-service agency that thrives to craft compelling experiences and forge connections between brands and consumers, we’re particularly thrilled to have won in the cross platform category of Interactive/Online.
This award didn’t come single-handedly and we want to credit the entire team for this win. At Foundry512, we check our egos at the door and work hard to foster a collaborative workplace, connecting teams of agency staff, freelancers, contractors, partners, and even other agencies to produce the best work possible for our clients.
“Special thanks to each and every team member that was on this project,” says Foundry512 president Aaron Henry. “We worked under a very tough deadline with a lot of moving parts between us and several different agencies. I’m extremely proud of our ability to perform under pressure and how successful the campaign was.”

Recognition from an award show like the ADDYs is nothing to be taken lightly. With about 55,000 local entries competing in over 200 cities across the country, the ADDY awards are the largest creative competition in America.
In order to truly understand this prestigious title, just look at the judges. To properly judge the best advertising in the country, the ADDY awards had to find some of the best talent in the country. The 2020 judges panel was stacked with some of the most prominent names in the industry. Names like Jaime Villalva, creative director at Droga5, Dave Ortega, creative director and agency leader of McKee Wallwork & Co, or Lewis Williams, CCO of Burrell Communications and one of Adweek’s 2019 Creative 100.
Having such a high caliber of talent working to judge the body of work submitted only further amplifies their selected winners. Foundry512 is eager to keep our winning streak going and prove that we can consistently create award-winning work for all our clients.
This win is just the first step in a national competition. The entire team at Foundry512 is confident and hopeful that we can take home the district win and ultimately the grand prize awarded at a destination summit in Las Vegas this June.
