It is not often that a local company gets national recognition, but that is the case in Paradux media of Eagle Point. Mike Frey and Tisha Oehmen recently received the bronze Telly Award in the 34th annual competition. They received the award for their piece titled: Asanta: Principles of Place, in the corporate Image category. They were chosen for the national award from among nearly 11,000 other entries.
According to Oehmen, the award is very prestigious and it is a distinctive honor to have received it.
The Telly awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, productions companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
Oehmen admits that the nomination process may appear to be self-serving, but the client in this case urged Paradux to enter. Fortunate they did. Over 500 judges, selected from among their peers, chose them from others in their category as the Bronze winner, second only to the coveted Silver award.
“Paradux media group was honored to be chosen to help Asante create and launch their new corporate image to their employees and to the world.” Oehmen continued, “We were thrilled to learn that Telly Awards chose to recognize the work that was accomplished on this project. This project was a team effort by many extremely talented and dedicated individuals, the end result is something we are all proud to have been a part of.”
Paradux is described by the owners as something of a hybrid agency. They can produce TV commercials, branding and other types of media presentations, including print. Clients include retail stores, hospice, glass companies and a variety of others. Oehmen admits they could have specialized in doing one service for a special type clients, but they chose to center their work in the southern Oregon area and handle a variety of clients.
Paradux began business in 2008, right here in the Rogue Valley. Oehmen and partner Mike Frey employ just two other specialists in Eagle Point. Together they produce high-quality work at a reasonable cost to promote the services of their clients. They do this to save their clients time and money and gain recognition to promote their businesses. They will produce clients commercials and create an online presence and, of course, the branding, the all important “face of a company.”
