Parker's "Engineers See the World Differently" campaign won awards at the 2nd Annual American Business Awards (the "Stevies") for "Best Television Ad Campaign" and "Best Television Spot." The campaign primarily targets engineers who design, specify, and use technology. A trio of spots give a humorous nod to engineers who are always focused on their work, as inspired by actual engineers in focus groups the company conducted to develop the campaign.
