Each year, we honor a client who embodies the values inspired by our mascot by presenting them with The K.O.N.A. Award.

Kind-Listens attentively, speaks plainly, and treats others with empathy and genuine respect.
Open– Open to evolving, innovating and being bold, and trusting the research and creative process.
Noble– Honest in their feedback, filled with integrity, and always keeps their word.
Accessible– Embodies the collaborative spirit, ensuring effective communication and timely resolution.
