ANAHEIM, Calif. – September 8, 2022 – Targus®, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, announced today that its “Big Steps, Small Environmental Footprints” campaign has been selected as an honoree of the 2022 American Inhouse Design Awards™ by the Graphic Design USA’s GDUSA, the oldest and largest program for inhouse creative excellence. 

Nearly 7,000 entries were received, and Targus was among the top 10 percent selected as winners for showcasing its excellence in branding, visual design, and strategic copy, focused on driving awareness, preference, and sales for Targus’ Cypress EcoSmart® Collection. This collection of sustainable laptop bags and backpacks is designed to minimize environmental impact while providing superior performance and versatility for carrying, organizing, and protecting your tech at home, in the office or classroom, and on the go. 

“The goal of this campaign was to tell Targus’ sustainability journey from a unique and creative perspective, while conveying the ethos of today’s eco-conscious businesses and consumers to choose products and brands that play an actionable role in minimizing our environmental footprint,” said Jason Whittemore, Targus’ Senior Art Director. “We are very proud to be recognized with this honor as a validation of our team’s branding and creative excellence.”
