Devaney & Associates Earns a Silver Success in 2020 Davey Awards

Devaney & Associates was named a Silver Award Winner in the 2020 Davey Awards for its creative collaboration on the Carroll Hospital “Better Together” wall. The annual International Davey Awards honor the achievements of small, creative companies who thrive off of big ideas, rather than unlimited budgets.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the hospital’s leadership team reached out to D&A with an exciting request. They wanted to display their appreciation for their overworked staff who had put their lives at risk to care bravely for the hospital’s patients and provide a positive outlet that would showcase the hospital’s unity and strength.

Silver Winner: Carroll Hospital's "Better Together" Wall

Devaney & Associates’ creative team worked quickly and efficiently (with a tight deadline of two weeks and having to follow all COVID-19 protocols) to transform a dull wall in Carroll Hospital’s lobby into an interactive masterpiece.

Overall, the wall represents some of the core principles of Carroll Hospital: teamwork, resilience, and innovation.
