By MVP Marketing + Design | May 3, 2024

Minneapolis, May 3, 2024  —  MVP Marketing + Design, a Minneapolis and Boston-based website design, branding, and digital agency serving private equity and real estate equity and development firms throughout North America and globally, is thrilled to announce its recent accolades at the 2024 Hermes Creative Awards, one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world.

MVP received a Gold Award for Overall Website Design in the highly competitive Professional Services category for its outstanding work in creating a new private equity website for Nashville-based Praxess Capital. Praxess specializes in innovative investment strategies for high-net-worth investors and their wealth advisors, providing “private access” to lower-middle-market (LMM) private equity firms and funds. MVP’s work highlights Praxess’ unique Blue Ocean strategy and its positioning as a first mover in this exciting new vertical recently recognized by Blackstone, which has just raised a $1.3B fund of its own. Additionally, MVP earned an Honorable Mention for the design and development of a website for Assam Companies (Sioux Falls, SD), experts in commercial and real estate development throughout the Midwest.

The Hermes Creative Awards is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). Established in 1995, AMCP is one of the largest and oldest third-party evaluators of creative work globally. Entrants, ranging from independent design agencies to Fortune 500 companies, are judged by experienced, senior-level industry professionals. The judging process, renowned for its accuracy, fairness, and credibility, takes approximately eight weeks to complete, with eight hours of judging each day.

“Our achievements at the 2024 Hermes Creative Awards highlight the creative synergy within our exceptional team of designers, developers, and project managers,” said Dick Weinrib, CEO & Founder of MVP Marketing + Design. “By aligning our innovative branding and website design best practices with the unique needs of Praxess and Assam, we’ve crafted digital experiences that set new benchmarks in private equity and real estate development. We deeply appreciate the collaboration and support of Jamie Wildman at Praxess Capital and Seth Assam at Assam Companies, who have been instrumental in reaching these milestones.”
