New creative work at diversi- COM caught the eyes of judges in a recent national telecommunica- tions marketing competition. The winning entries were the new Red- neck Tech logo and a diversiCOM advertisement featuring a young girl in front of a computer. "We have undergone an entire creative overhaul in the past year," said CEO Dave Del Zoppo, "which included updating our diversiCOM brand and developing a new sub- brand for our computer sales and services, the 'Redneck Techs.' Our in-house creative team is made up of Barb Ostrander, marketing man- ager, and Katie Niehaus, graphic designer. Both were new hires in 2009." Every two years, The Orga- nization for the Promotion and Advancement of SmallTelecommu- nications Companies (OPASTCO), recognizes the best communica- tions and marketing publications created for the rural telecommuni- cations industry across the nation. Indy Awards are judged by indus- try experts in marketing and public relations, and materials produced during each two-year interval are eligible for competition. "diversiCOM has been a ter- rific place for Katie and me to come together and get creative," said Ostrander. "The company supports our efforts with excellent technol- ogy and on-going training opportu- nities, allowing us to try new things. We've taken our marketing beyond traditional print and into Facebook, a new website, window graphics and watch for our blog featuring tips and reviews from our Redneck Techs."
