Southfield, Mich., May 19, 2011 – Airfoil Public Relations has earned a platinum Hermes Creative Award for quality, creativity and resourcefulness in executing the Microsoft’s annual “Work Without Walls”public relations campaign. Airfoil provides public relations and marketing communications strategy and support for Microsoft’s U.S. enterprise, industry, small-to-medium business and channel partner teams.

In an effort to encourage the adoption of Microsoft solutions that enable a remote workforce, Airfoil developed this research-driven communications program to reposition remote working from an employee perk to an operational strategy in the minds of business leaders.

“Our ‘Work Without Walls’ campaign raised the bar for how we proactively shape strategic, creative and targeted business story platforms,” said Amy Messano, senior public relations manager for Microsoft. “Over the past decade, our strong relationship with Airfoil has helped our teams to execute extremely ambitious communications programs with efficiency and excellence.”

Hermes Creative Awards, administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals, is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional materials and programs, and emerging technologies. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, web based innovators and freelancers.
