"The name speaks to a desire to be close to everything but also to know that home is the center of my universe. This community is truly 'Centered,' from the name, marketing materials, sales office and overall design of the plans. The colors and visuals are energetic and inviting -- reflecting the feel of the community spaces and livable floor plans."
Centered on Capitol also won Gold Awards for Best Sales Office and Best Graphic Continuity, and Silver Awards for Best Outdoor Living Space and several community marketing categories including Best Logo Design, Best Website, Best Internet Marketing Campaign and Best Signage Design.

"The consistent use of the graphics and fresh colors captures the essence of the location and conveys a completely pulled-together campaign targeting a very savvy consumer," the judges stated.
Trumark also received a Silver Award for Builder Industry Community Spirit for its work with Charity:Water, Through its partnership with Charity:Water, Trumark donates one new well for every 25 to 50 homes that the company builds.
"We're in the business of building communities for people right here at home," said Trumark Principal and cofounder Michael Maples. "But we see an opportunity to carry out the same mission around the world."
The Nationals is the nation's largest competition for new home sales and marketing professionals and communities. Awards are presented each year at The Nationals Awards Gala during the International Building Show.

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
