Awards Won by Maya People

Each year, the Advertising Research Foundation's David Ogilvy Awards honor research that has contributed significantly to the development of great advertising. Maya is a three-time David Ogilvy Award winner.

Maya was privileged to work with Jaguar North America, a division of the Ford Motor Company, in evaluating its "Temptations" campaign. This provocative television, print and out-of-home advertising was designed to introduce Jaguar's new XJ8 model to the market. Maya evaluated how well the campaign would convey new features and quality improvements with the goal of driving traffic into the showroom. This research, along with other research efforts, was honored with a David Ogilvy Award for Jaguar, its agency and Maya.

Maya conducted qualitative and quantitative research with the U.S. Census Bureau and its agency, Young & Rubicam, to develop and evaluate a campaign targeting minority populations. The goal of the television and print advertising was to increase completion rates of the U.S. Census in 2000. The ARF honored Maya, Young & Rubicam and the Census Bureau with the prestigious Grand Ogilvy Award for research excellence.

And most recently, again for the 2010 U.S. Census, Maya worked along with Draftfcb Worldwide to evaluate their early creative efforts. Researching ad concepts (TV, radio, print, OOH, online) to optimize their effectiveness, we engaged citizens of the United States to evaluate ads in fourteen languages across the country including Alaska, Puerto Rico and Hawaii. As a result, the agency created a campaign that surpassed response rates from 2000 again capturing the David Ogilvy award for 2010.
