PRA Logo and Website Earn Excellence Awards

Early last year, we embarked on an exciting new process. We decided to change our new logo and launch a completely-redesigned website. We tasked our client relations department with spearheading the process, and we partnered with Versant, a marketing and branding agency, to assist in the development of the website and creation of the new logo. Now, six months after their October 2013 launches, we’re thrilled to share that both our new logo and website were just recognized by the Business Marketing Association (BMA) for their design excellence. BMA is a service organization for professionals in the business-to-business marketing and communications industry, and the group honors businesses for their marketing efforts each year at the annual Bell Awards. PRA won an Excellence Award for websites over $35K and an Excellence Award for Branding or Re-Branding. Thank you to our partner in the process, Versant, for working collaboratively with our team and for submitting our behalf. With more than 175 entries submitted, we couldn’t be more excited!
