HVCB Work From Hawaii Wins Webby Award

We were lucky enough to work with the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau (HVCB) and global marketing firm Edelman on a print and online ad campaign last year called “Work From Hawaii” - a short term residency program to connect mainland professionals from a diverse array of fields to local professionals, creators, artists, and businesses. The ad campaign is now a winner at the 2019 Webby Awards in Advertising, Media, and PR.

Sight and Sound Studios provided Production Management and Coordination and served as the primary local vendor for the team’s equipment needs.

It was a challenging, gratifying, and humbling experience traveling between six islands. We had the opportunity to collaborate with the talented individuals from Edelman New York who envisioned this program and many amazing people from Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Maui, and the Island of Hawaii.

Congratulations to Edelman on their award, HVCB, and all the incredible people who contributed to crafting images for this project. We also want to take the time to recognize some of the people who had to do the “work” to create “Work From Hawaii” - Photographer: AJ Feducia, Art Director: Jessica Oshita, Creative Director: Eden Lewis, Producer: Jennifer Carter-Campbell.
