HomeAway Picks GSD&M

Austin-based GSD&M has been picked to handle creative and media work for HomeAway (also Austin-based). The two companies are just a few blocks away from each so they were able to do some pretty cool things during the pitch process. GSD&M held a pep-rally outside of HomeAway’s office and HomeAway employees (see photo by Deborah Cannon) stood in front of GSD&M’s office holding up large letters spelling out “Let’s Work Together” to announce that GSD&M had won their business.
