A quick update featuring some big award winning projects coming out of my classes at The Portfolio Center. Congratulations to former student and graduate Olivia Phelan. Olivia won a Gold Award and Judges’ Choice Award from the National Addy Awards for her sophisticated Félicité packaging. The American Advertising Awards, the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracts more than 40,000 entries every year in local American Advertising Federation Club (Ad Club) competitions. It was such an honor to work with and advise Olivia on this project during her grad quarter. I still swoon for that gorgeous 3!
Congratulations as well to Katie Tynes who won the Foundations Category and Judge’s Choice Award at the AIGA_ATL Pin-Up Show for her Taste The World of Atlanta Map from last quarter’s Message and Content Class. The American Institute of Graphic Arts, founded in 1914, is the oldest, largest professional association for designers in the country. The Atlanta Chapter is the ninth largest chapter in the nation.
Brava to you both!!! It is lovely to see beautiful work get honored.
