Last week, we received notification that Alchemi Design has won two dotCOMM Awards! Not just one, but two! We are so excited to have earned such recognition for our work on our own website redesign project as well as the main events marketing piece for the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel Venue Book, a Marriott, Autograph Collection hotel. Here’s a closer look at our award winning projects.
dotCOMM Awards 2017 Gold Winner for the Website/Small Business Category*
Since the establishment of our company in 2005, Alchemi Design & Publications has kept a consistent online presence with our website and social media, maintaining our brand identity to establish a recognizable presence in the digital world. Last year, with ten years under our belt, we felt it was time for a refresh, not only to our online brand but also to the technical aspects of the code, layout and organization. In the hopes of creating an improved digital experience, we have designed our current website with a client-conscious mindset. But that’s enough of explaining… go check it out and let us know what you think. Leave a comment on the blog, send us a message on our Contact page, or hit us up on Facebook.
Alchemi can help you design a custom website for your business and services. Another example of website design work, please visit the The Wright Firm’s website. We took their existing website, advertising and print collaterals and updated the branding to better reflect their professional and sophisticated approach. If you would like to learn more about how Alchemi can help you with your own website design or marketing needs please email or call (443) 321-9895.
Annapolis Waterfront Hotel Venue Book
dotCOMM Awards 2017 Platinum Winner for the Owned Media/eBrochure Category*
This custom venue book for the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel is the fourth edition of the hotels events marketing tool designed to showcase the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel as a premier wedding and reception venue. The book highlights the best and most unique features of the hotel and event space. As commissioned by the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel and partnering with the hotels preferred vendors, Alchemi designed and published the book for both print and digital distribution, creating an online ebrochure with interactive links, allowing an infinite reach to potential customers. Once we completed the book, the materials were handed off to the hotel’s marketing department for distribution, and voila!
All of our team members at Alchemi share a passion for providing local businesses with the best marketing and design tools we can offer. Our goal is to help you establish your brand identity, reach your target audience and increase your sales and consumer traffic.

The Maryland Office of Tourism has awarded us the 2016 Cultural, Heritage, Sports and Culinary Tourism Award for our Visit Harford! Restaurant Guide.
Award Winning Publication, Restaurant Guide for Harford County by Alchemi Design
Stop, You’re Making Us Blush!
Alchemi has designed and published a custom Restaurant Guide for the community of Harford County, Maryland that lists restaurants in the area and identifies the types of food they serve, their location and contact information to help visitors get around. Complete with a creative set of icons to indicate the variety of cuisine and other services about each restaurant, the Restaurant Guide displays a fun and appetizing approach to attract the attention of the tourists and locals alike. We are so excited that our colleagues like our work and we are thankful for such positive recognition with this wonderful award from the Maryland Office Of Tourism.

Recently a few of our hospitality clients have won awards from different entities in recognition of their consistency in pleasing their clients. Awards from organizations like TripAdvisor, About.com and various local and national publications. These are especially important today because they are driven by their customer’s input using social media. We have worked with many clients to consult and manage social media accounts to push certain events and customer satisfaction projects. While we at Alchemi Design would like to claim full responsibility for our client’s awards through our dedication to their branding and advertising, it is a large part due to their individual experiences with each customer that seals the deal. We can use this opportunity to point out that the common factor here is consistency. These clients who are recognized have consistent advertising practices we recommend in many outlets which we are happy to create and expedite for them. Not to mention that having our firm actually do this advertising work frees up their staff so they can devote their time to the customer service that will inspire even more customers to seek them out. We congratulate these clients on their wisdom and hard work!

Alchemi Design has done it again taking home the Hermes Gold Design award for our DC Westin Venue Book. As well as Honorable Mention for our Smokey Joe’s Grill menu design. This is a great honor as AMCP judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. There were over 5,500 entries from throughout the United States, Canada and several other countries in this year’s competition. Go Team Alchemi!
We are happy to share that Washingtonian Bride & Groom has flattered Alchemi by using one of our Bridal Show campaigns in their email marketing/advertising material.
This is an email blast that we created for last year’s Historic Inns of Annapolis Bridal Fair. As you can see, Washingtonian is using it to promote their dedicated email service. We couldn’t be happier to make an appearance in their marketing material!
The votes are in, and Chesapeake Bay Beach Club has been named Capital Style’s Bridal Reader’s Choice Best Wedding Site.
