AdHouse Books is pleased to announce the win of a Silver Award for Design at the 2007 Richmond Show for the publication PULPHOPE by Paul Pope.
“We were very excited to hear about the win,” says publisher/designer Chris Pitzer. “Richmond is a city that is FULL of big creative agencies like Martin, Elevation and Work Labs. To be recognized for work that could be considered part of that community is very rewarding.”
The awards are sponsored by the Richmond Ad Club and were handed out at a gala event on April 18th, 2008 at the Virginia Historical Society.
