Brand Tango wins the ARDA Proud Award and four other ARDYs at ARDA World 2019.

Brand Tango, a branding, design and digital advertising agency located in South Florida, won the ARDA Proud Award and four other top honors at the 2019 ARDY awards presented by the American Resort Development Association on April 10. The trade association held its annual meeting and awards gala at the Hilton Orlando.

The ARDA Proud Award is given to an ARDA member who donates time, passion and expertise to ARDA’s membership initiatives. Brand Tango also received ARDY awards for the best Creative Services Team, Logo Design for Royal Resorts Signature Club Elite Logo, Digital Magazine for UVC Fall/Winter Edition Life Unlimited, and Sales Collateral Materials for the Club Wyndham Austin Sales Center designed and conceptualized for Wyndham Destinations. 

“There is nothing more gratifying than receiving the ARDY Award for Creative Services Team for the second time in the presence of industry leaders like Hilton Grand Vacations, Wyndham Destinations, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Holiday Inn Club Vacations and Disney Vacation Club,” said James Kluetz, president and chief creative officer. “Receiving the ARDA Proud award that kicked off the evening for Brand Tango’s contribution to the organization’s brand refresh of key programs was a true honor and totally unexpected. We congratulate our clients Royal Resorts, Unlimited Vacation Club by AM Resorts and Wyndham Destinations on their work winning top honors. We also congratulate our other ARDY finalists including DAE, Hilton Grand Vacations and Sunset World. A special thanks goes to Wyndham Destinations for allowing us to partner with them on their ground-breaking sales center at their Wyndham Austin Resort that took home the coveted ACE Award for Project of Excellence.”

In announcing the ARDA Proud Award, Jenny Davlin, ARDA’s vice president of member experience and business development, praised Brand Tango’s contributions to several initiatives including the ARDA 50Forward campaign. “When we pushed a deadline, they found time. When we had questions, they had the answers. When we needed to squeak every penny out of our budget, they just made it happen,” she said.
