(Fort Wayne, Ind.) One Lucky Guitar, Inc. (OLG), recently received regional and national accolades, putting their work, and their clients, on the map. Recognized for projects across the board, from TV commercials to t-shirts, the awards highlight the vast capabilities of the growing local design & marketing boutique.

At the 2010, 31st Annual National Telly Awards, OLG was decorated with two Bronze awards. Alongside partners, Lodge Design and Explore Media, OLG was recognized for a 30 second TV spot created for the Lutheran Health Network. The agency’s “Talent Made Here” web video campaign, created in tandem with Explore Media for the Northeast Indiana Fund’s Talent Initiative, was also awarded.

“To have our hard work recognized in this way is quite the accomplishment,” says Matt Kelley, OLG’s owner. “At One Lucky Guitar, we seek to design and deliver work that will resonate with our clients and their customers. We take these awards as a badge that we’ve done just that.”

After being recognized locally at the Fort Wayne Addy Awards, presented by the American Advertising Federation of Fort Wayne, with six Gold Medals—three of OLG’s winning projects continued on to the district level to receive Silver Addys. District six comprises all local winners from across Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. OLG’s wins include the 2020 Vision brochure, created for Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana (YLNI) (photography by Kelly Lynch and copy by YLNI members), the 2010 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes t-shirt, created for the Fort Wayne Woman’s Bureau, and the Lucky Ten book, created by and for One Lucky Guitar.
