His skills in design, photowork, creative concepts and website creation are invaluable assets. His natural affinity for web design makes Terry Aftershock’s digital go-to guy.

Awards

The purpose of any campaign or project is not necessarily to win awards. ROI and meeting project goals come first. But great work does have a tendency to garner recognition.

In recent years, Aftershock and our clients have basked in more than our fair share of the limelight.

The accolades have included:

  • six ICSC Maple Leaf Awards

  • one Maxi Award

  • three EDCO Awards

  • one DesignEdge Reggie Award

  • four Summit Creative International Awards

​That’s our story.

We’d love to hear yours. Or better yet, help you craft it.
