And before you go, hear what past winner Sarah Handlos, creative strategist at Q2, has to say:

One of the great things about Q2 is their belief in their own employees. We have been given the opportunity to exercise our creative talents for the better of the company. We chose to enter the In-House Design Awards because we felt that the work we created was on par with the work of outside groups and that is something that is not always the case with in-house groups. Our in-house team solved marketing problems in a creative and innovative way–making them unique to our industry. …

Winning this award has brought credence to creative as a business unit within the larger marketing department. Following this award, there have been changes to the business structure and process to surface new career paths and ensure creative voice at the highest level of the organization.
