PHOENIX, Ariz. - Arizona State Credit Union has received four prestigious Hermes Creative Awards, an International competition honoring creative professionals who concept, write and design traditional and emerging media. In addition, Arizona State Credit Union was the only financial institution with an in-house creative team to win the highest honors of the Platinum Award.

The site provides tips and resources to improve its members' financial situation. The Credit Union also received a Gold Award for their YourSavings Economic Stimulus newsprint ad and an honorable mention for the corresponding radio spot.
