PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Jan. 31, 2024 – Blue Mantis, a leading digital strategy and services provider delivering managed services, cybersecurity, and cloud solutions, announced today that its rebrand, accomplished in partnership with Tank Design, has been recognized as the winner of GDUSA’s American Graphic Design Award™ in the “New Name & Identity” category. The iconic contest, now in its 60th year, received more than 8,000 entries across both traditional and new media with only the top 10 percent being honored for inclusion.
“Our company has evolved and transformed over its three-decade history as a nationally recognized IT company (GreenPages). We aspired to create a powerful new brand to better reflect our ambitious growth goals and showcase the digital innovation and strategic expertise we provide to our clients across all industries,” said Sarah Foote, VP of Marketing for Blue Mantis. “Blue Mantis is the successful culmination of that vision, reflecting a modern perspective and infinite opportunity for our customers, partners, employees and investors. We’re honored to be recognized by GDUSA and we look forward to meeting the future under the banner of our progressive new brand.”
In describing the quality of the contest award submissions received, Gordon Kaye, editor and publisher of GDUSA, said, “The depth and breadth of projects is remarkable—a representation of the best of American graphic design across the ever-widening range of clients, projects and media that creative professionals touch. Most importantly, it is graphic communication for commerce and culture at its best, executed by creative professionals who ably and authentically advance their clients’ objectives to build meaningful value and make human connections for their organizations, brands, products, services, causes and beliefs.”
In addition to a new name and brand identity, Blue Mantis also designed and launched a modern website showcasing a clean, user-friendly experience to attract, engage and delight visitors, and elevate, expand and drive brand awareness. The website focuses on communicating the business value of Blue Mantis’s range of solutions purpose-built to address seven strategic areas of modern IT: cybersecurity, cloud, managed services, data center modernization, networking, modern workspace, and carrier services.
