MBB Scores 5 Awards at AIGA A15 Design Gala

Five pieces of MBB work snagged awards at the Kansas City AIGA A15 Design Awards Gala. From content to illustration, our newly award-winning work showcases the creative variety found within our walls. But let’s start with the meaty stuff, the work we created for our clients:

Rossville Union Present Rye 101

Editorial Design

When it comes to rye whiskey, Rossville Union knows their history. Our brand launch for the rye whiskey involved us distilling their rye know-how into this book, one part history lesson and one part tasting guide. What makes this piece stand out is the care we put into the presentation: embossed paper with leather-like texture pairs with metallic copper accents, making this handout a special takeaway for Rossville Union’s biggest fans.

iWonder Brand Mark

Branding + Identity

The Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas, came to us earlier this year wanting branding for their education programs. Enter iWonder, a unique brand bringing the awe of space to new generations through high-tech educational programs. Naming and designing a brand for an established institution is an amazing opportunity, and this award was a great win for us in a super competitive category.

Rossville Union Photography


We’re some kickass content creators at MBB, and our photography for Rossville Union showcases our team’s skill. With a renewed focus on creating lifestyle imagery for the whiskey’s social feeds, our team traveled to locations throughout Kansas City to get the exact tone for their photography. Fresh ingredients, unique settings and all around badassery are at the forefront for Rossville Union’s social feeds.

Beyond client work, two pieces of internal MBB work garnered praise at the gala.

MBB Better Together Calendar

Personal + Non-Commercial

We’ve talked about this calendar before on our blog, but the continued praise for this labor of love keeps us going. Our creative team’s dedication to collaboration on this project has echoed through all aspects of our process. And if you haven’t already, it’s time to switch to October’s design!

International Women’s Day Illustrations


Embracing current trends in illustration and social movements, our designer Lyss crafted these illustrations to celebrate International Women’s Day at MBB. With a staff that’s predominantly female, this day is a special one at MBB, highlighting the talented women in the agency.

Seeing the work from other firms around Kansas City proves that our community is an intensely creative bunch, which makes our recognition feel that much sweeter. We can’t wait to see what’s coming next from them and us. Until then, we’ll add these five awards to our stack and stare at them longingly until next year, fingers crossed.
