Honoring print, broadcast, out-of-home and public service entries, the local North Central Indiana Chapter of the American Advertising Federation hosted the 2010-11 ADDY Awards Banquet at the Purdue Memorial Union on Friday, February 25. The theme this year was Moulin Rouge and the atmosphere was exhilarating!

For my work at the Purdue Alumni Association, I brought home the following awards:Nov/Dec 2010 Alumnus Cover (Heroes on Hold): Judges Choice Award
Nov/Dec 2010 Alumnus Magazine Design (Heroes on Hold): Gold ADDY
Nov/Dec 2010 Feature (Heroes on Hold): Gold ADDY
Jan/Feb 2010 Alumnus Cover (Chris Kramer): Gold ADDY
Jan/Feb 2010 Editorial Feature (Breakfast Club): Silver ADDY
Nov/Dec 2010 Alumnus Cover (Heroes on Hold): Silver ADDY

My favorite thing about working the Purdue Alumnus magazine is being enabled to create evocative and compelling designs for the thousands of passionate readers! I can say on behalf of our small team (myself and the editor!)  that we are all very proud of the alumni magazine that we produce for our membership and are very excited that once again we have created a years worth of award-winning publication design!

Since I was attending the ADDY’s I chose to also submit work in the student category for a poster campaign that was done in the Fall of 2010 at Purdue University. As a graduate student seeking my MFA in Visual Communication Design I worked on this series of recruitment posters. For my student entry I received a Silver ADDY and a Judges Choice Award for my work on this campaign.

Purdue Alumnus Winners!
