Winning a Hatch Award is a lot of fun.
The namesake of the Hatch Awards is Francis W. Hatch, who started his advertising career at Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn (later to be known as BBDO) and helped establish New England as a creative hub. What started as a small gathering of friends to recognize their peers has blossomed into a vibrant celebration of the Boston creative community.
You could say that everyone in attendance last night was a winner but a few stood out. Get to know six award-winning Boston agencies that caught our eye.

The enclosed letter read:
“Nothing says ‘I’m sorry’ quite like flowers and chocolate, so we’ve combined the two and enclosed a chocolate rose. But if you’re allergic to flowers (or chocolate), we hope this duct tape will help fix things up. Or, if you’re ever feeling annoyed again, you can de stress using this particularly squeezable can of spam.”
