Firm, president honored as retail design industry leaders
Columbus, Ohio Oct. 2, 2012 —Display and Design Ideas Magazine, a retail-focused trade publication, honored Columbus, Ohio-based Big Red Rooster with two retail design industry awards.
DDI Magazine named the multidimensional brand experience firm as one of its Design Firms of the Year.
“We’re not just a brand experience consultancy, we’re a growth consultancy,” Chairman and Co-CEO Martin J. Beck said. “We’re honored to deliver brilliant design to our national and international clients while propelling their growth. Our successes are truly their successes.”
The magazine also recognized President and Co-CEO Aaron Spiess as a Retail Design Luminaries award winner. According to DDI, Retail Design Luminaries represent “outstanding individuals who have demonstrated unparalleled creative excellence, exemplary professional leadership and unwavering personal commitment to the retail design industry.”
Spiess was one of only three design professionals to receive the award.
“This humbling honor is a testament to the brilliant associates, clients and mentors I’ve interacted and collaborated with throughout my career,” Spiess said. “I believe anything and everything is possible, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for our firm.”
The awards are part of DDI Magazine’s Portfolio Awards program, which recognizes the best, brightest and most innovative people, projects and companies within the retail design industry. Winners were chosen through an annual reader survey.
Spiess accepted the awards during the annual DDI Forum in Napa Valley, Calif on Sept. 14.
