Design 446 Wins Big at the 11th Annual FAME Awards


On the evening of Thursday, February 27th members of the Shore Builders Association of Central New Jersey, Inc. joined together for an evening of food, fun and recognition at the South Gate Manor in Freehold, NJ.

This year’s 11th Annual FAME Awards Banquet did not disappoint! Tom, Ann Marie, Kelly, Jayne and Nick represented Design 446 and had a wonderful evening in the company of many clients and business partners. It was outstanding to see so many great companies recognized and honored for their excellence in marketing in 2013.

Design 446 would like to formally congratulate K. Hovnanian Homes, Prima Corporation, Pulte Homes & Walters Homes on your big wins. As your marketing partner, it was our pleasure to work with you to create these award winners!

We were also lucky enough to take home three awards to add to our collection here at Design 446: Best Associate Member Color Ad, Best Associate Member Logo and Associate Member Facebook Page!

It’s an honor to not only be recognized as a local leader in Marketing and Advertising, but also to be a member of such a vital, spirited and talented Association.

Tom Villane, President: I joined the Design 446 team in 1995 as Vice President and partner. I came from a printing and political advertising background. I am a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University where I earned degrees in Political Science and History. Although I’m not an artist, I always thrived on the fast paced creative environment at Design 446. I’ve seen Design 446 grow from a 5-person design studio into a full service industry powerhouse. I’ve also seen college interns develop into company leaders. And it has mostly been a fun ride. My wife Sandie and I have 2 beautiful daughters, Carly and Alli. When I’m not at Design 446, you can find me running, skiing or saltwater fishing.
