This year’s annual SMPS Houston Design Awards Gala focused on members’ excellence in marketing design and communications, with the theme of “Cultivating Creativity.” The chapter continued its long-standing tradition of supporting Casa de Esperanza de Los Ninos by donating all proceeds from the wine pull and silent auction to the charity.
Thank you to those that attended, a huge thanks to all the sponsors and the gala committee/volunteers, and congratulations to all the award recipients! Your thoughts and input about the gala and design awards would be greatly appreciated; please take a moment to complete this quick SURVEY.
