Big Monocle took home a Silver Telly for our People Team video series with eBay, featuring the Studio C actors Mallory Everton and Stacey Harkey. The Telly Awards are a celebration of excellence in video and television across screens big and small, and this year marked their 40th anniversary.
“Eye-catching, off-kilter work is a kind of our signature at Big Monocle,” said project lead Jeff White. “Being recognized this year by the Telly’s validates our team’s efforts and focus on quality. Personally,
I’m getting a tattoo to mark the occasion”
Other Big Monoclers encouraged Jeff to get the tattoo.
“I told him face tattoos are “in” this year, while Carly suggested he get ‘T-E-L-L-Y’ across his knuckles,” said Big Monocle designer Dillon Blue. “We’re hoping he at least splits the difference and shows up with a neck tattoo on Monday.”
Receiving over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world.
“You might ask, didn’t we always count ourselves among those high ranks?” said Big Monocle CEO and Founder Amy Stellhorn. “You’re goddamn right we did. But now it’s official. I mean, Jeff got a tattoo. That’s permanent.”
