We love to flaunt our team. And we say team because that’s how we approach what we do in marketing and advertising for our clients. All our programs are executed with a full team strategy, whereas everyone is a key player with what they do. This is not an individual sport, as without key components of the team, with the strategy and players, all would be lost.
PALO Creative® Earns
4 ADDY Advertising Awards
Great work is supposed to win over hearts and minds. Judges are just icing on the cake.
PALO Creative® recently accepted four 2023 ADDY awards from the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) Akron chapter at an awards ceremony at the Akron Civic Theatre.
We earned Silver ADDY awards for the following client projects:
• Cross Platform: Integrated Campaigns for “Schneller Lucent Campaign”
• Cross Platform: Integrated Campaigns for “Garden Kettle Brand”
Up until last year, we had never entered our work. But it’s never a bad idea to know how we stack up against others in the region. We wanted to make our presence known. And we did! Not only by having our name called multiple times, but we showed up in force – with more than 20 of us in attendance.
The Akron ADDY competition featured work submitted by advertising agencies through northeast Ohio, including the Youngstown, Canton, and Akron areas. The ADDYs recognize exceptional creativity across a wide variety of categories.

Rob Palowitz Serves as guest Auctioneer for Ursuline Fundraiser
Whether it’s cheering on the Ursuline Irish football team or offering production help with the Quarterly Alumni Newsletter, Rob is always looking for opportunities to support his alma mater.
His most recent support came in the form as a guest auctioneer for the school’s 19th annual auction fundraiser, which was held live online. More than 400 Ursuline alumni, parents and friends donated items that were auctioned off during the event.
The auction was live streamed on Facebook and YouTube and raised more than $10,000 for the school.
In addition to Rob (Class of 1988), other guest auctioneers included Patrick Rubinic ('82), William Wainio ('11), Rev. Richard Murphy ('72), Paulina Montaldo (Ursuline Spanish Teacher), Marina Sepulveda ('22) and Mason Reichard ('24).

Team PALO Rises Up to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
While members of Team PALO pour plenty of energy and passion into telling our clients’ stories, we also understand the importance of taking time to invest in the communities we live and work in.
We recently took some time to recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help spread the word about the horrible, life-altering aspects of breast cancer.
This year’s National Breast Cancer Foundation theme is RISE, and our team rose to the challenge by wearing custom-made T-shirts to the office and eating lunch as a team. We posed for a team photo and posted it on our social media platforms to share the important awareness message with our followers.
With thousands of breast cancer cases being diagnosed every day in the United States, our team believes in the importance of sparking the conversation to help save lives. Check out our Facebook post here.
PALO Creative Team Participates in United Way Satur-Day of Caring
About the only thing Team PALO members love as much as marketing is food. Especially if that means that everyone in the community has access to it. Team members from PALO Creative spent three hours handing out food kits to needy Valley families as part the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley’s Satur-Day of Caring event at the Covelli Centre.
The group was one of several who helped to hand out food kits that included chicken, apples, potatoes and other staples to those in need.
More than 700 boxes of food were distributed to 2,600 people during the drive-through food drive.

PALO Creative Renovates Home as Part of Habitat for Humanity
Who doesn’t want to get out of the office from time to time? Even better when you can couple that with doing some good in your community. And that’s exactly what we did.
We joined up with Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning Valley, a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. Our efforts in sanding, hanging drywall, running wires and more will ultimately allow a family to move into a safe, affordable home.
Along with Habitat for Humanity, our team believes that affordable housing plays a big role in stable communities. Learn more about the Habitat for Humanity goal by visiting its website.

Rob Palowitz Helps United Way Raise Thousands Through Bass Classic
He’d rather be fishin’. When he’s not leading the team at PALO Creative or spending time with his family, Rob loves spending his free time out on the boat looking to land that next big fish.
The tournament fisherman has a passion for the sport as well as for helping community organizations improve quality of life for Mahoning Valley residents. For almost 20 years, he’s combined those interests by serving on the committee for the annual Muransky Companies Bass Classic that supports the United Way.
The event, held at Pine and Evans Lakes, has raised a total of close to $500,000 for the cause since its inception.
