Keystone Resources, a Heights-based brand, interactive and proposal studio has experienced a highly successful year. Earlier this year, Keystone Resources was awarded its first package design project and subsequently received its first package design award. The hand-drawn logo, hand-made jute bags and material printed on recycled paper for Damselfly effectively complemented their mission of corporate social responsibility. Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) honored this project with a Package Design Award.
Keystone Resources received a second GDUSA award in 2014 for the design of ScoutsHonor.org. The American Web Design Award highlighted the easy user experience and custom MODX coding, which allows data to be easily imported, streamlining workflow for the Houston based, non-profit animal rescue shelter.
Keystone Resources is currently listed in the Houston Business Journal’s list of Top Advertising Agencies; is on the Fast 100 List – as one of the fastest-growing companies in Houston and is ranked in the top 10 of Fastest Women-Owned Businesses by the HBJ. The organization has grown by nearly 100 percent in the years between 2011-2013 and is continuing its trajectory of growth, having hired three new employees in 2014.
In August, Keystone Resources Founder and President, Julie Irvin, was inducted into the inaugural class of the Houston Apartment Association’s 40 under 40. The title acknowledges individuals who are passionate about their community, their career and the multifamily industry in Houston.
