National Medal for Museum and Library Service
Within the overall agency brand are several national initiatives, each with their own communications campaigns. The first of which is the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, an annual award given to exceptional museums and libraries in a ceremony at the White House. I also worked with HISTORY to adapt the National Medals brand for an annual feature video.
