We are honored to achieve these professional accolades against such fierce competition. Winning and placing means validation. It was a risk to open Circle Three Branding and these results prove that it was worth the risk. You can do the right thing for the customer and bring in more business for them, but is the work considered “good” by professional standards? Winning at the NFPW Professional Communications Contest gives us a benchmark for our work.
