Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, December 9, 2002
Two Hunter Douglas Window Fashions publications earned awards at the recent 13th Annual Galaxy 2002 Awards Competition.
"Solutions: Your Guide to Beautiful Windows" and "Child Safety For Your Home" earned an honorable mention and a bronze, respectively, in the competition, which recognizes excellence in product and service marketing. Hunter Douglas, a manufacturer of hard window coverings, was in competition with more than 450 entries from 12 countries. Judging was conducted by marketing consultant firms and corporate marketing departments across the United States and Canada.
"The winners are considered by peers in the industry as the best in the world," said Reni Witt, president of MerComm, an independent marketing organization.
"We wanted to make consumers aware of child safety issues in a format that is easily understandable," said Penny Steyer, director of marketing and communications for Hunter Douglas. "We designed these pieces to reflect the way consumers live today and to help them understand that window coverings not only control light, but can enhance it."
