HUB STRATEGY WINS GRAPHIS GOLD

San Francisco - August 5, 2008 - Hub Strategy & Communication (Hub), a full service marketing and advertising creative collective, received a Gold Award from Graphis Magazine for their print ad for Sling Media's Slingbox. The ad is titled "Wallpaper" and visually expresses the idea of bringing your living room TV to your mobile phone; the core benefit of the Slingbox. As a Gold winner, the ad will appear in the Graphis Advertising Annual 2009 released this October. "Almost all of the award-winning print work we've done for Slingbox has been headline driven so it's nice that this headline-free, visual solution ad is getting some love, particularly on an international level," says Peter Judd, Design Director for Hub.
