For the third year in a row, the entire helium creative team was incredibly proud to receive the Best in Show Award from the 2020 ADDY Awards from the Ft. Lauderdale-West Palm Beach chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). This year, it was our work on 57 Ocean – an ultra-luxury beachfront residential property located on Miami Beach’s prestigious Millionaire’s Row.
helium created award-winning video and web components for this high-end campaign, but it was the 57 Ocean neighborhood brochure [ahem, print is not dead] that took home the top award of the entire event.
BEST OF SHOW // 57 OCEAN NEIGHBORHOOD BROCHURES
A bold, contemporary new future that is still in touch with the glitter of its storied past – this was the direction we brought to life across this printed piece that highlights the property’s surrounding neighborhood. Commentary from historians, archival photos, modern-day imagery, and drone photography all came together in a comprehensive guide of restaurants, culture, nightlife, and more. Using several sheets of specialty textured paper by Mohawk, we created two companion books for 57 Ocean: The Wellness Guide and The Neighborhood Brochure. Thanks to Bellak for printing these brochures. The end pieces are thoughtful, tactile and sophisticated.
January of this year marked our 15-year anniversary. Yes! That’s 15 years of branding, website development, graphic design, and marketing projects that have brought upon amazing experiences and made helium creative a recognized full-service creative studio.
We are humbled that we’ve been able to stay strong for 15 years and to still be honored by the American Advertising Federation, especially the Greater Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches chapter, with some of their top awards.
On March 7th, the helium crew traded in Fort Lauderdale for West Palm Beach to attend the 2019 ADDY Awards Gala at Harriet Himmel Theatre. In company of other remarkable creative agencies, we received a total 7 awards – including Best of Show for the 2nd year in a row!
Check out the full list of the winning projects.

SILVER Plant Intention Brand Development
For the creation of Plant Intention we went as far as traveling to London to meet with the inspiring founder and grasp as much of her energy to infuse into this product-driven brand. From concepting the name to developing the striking brand, we are sure this is just the first of many awards.
