Last night, my Twitter feed blew up. Apparently, everyone I follow has an Academy Awards fetish. The Oscars don't turn my crank, but now I know what my non-football-loving friends must think of me on Saturdays in the fall- fair play.
As fate would have it, I did attended the local level awards ceremony for the worlds largest advertising design competition. The Addy’s are sponsored by the American Advertising Federation and are structured so that the winners of local awards move through to regional judging, and the regional winners move along to national judging. My primary job at the show was to accompany D.Rushing, smile, be pleasant, and otherwise serve as eye candy (or something like that). I was also there as an interested observer since the website for the Design Studio Retrospective had been nominated for an award. The event was good fun, It’s always nice to be in a room full of creative people. I was, however, sorely disappointed to find that the inimitable Jim Kennedy did not emcee this year.
As it turns out, the Retrospective website won a silver Addy for digital. I am very appreciative for the hard work and effort that Neathawk, DuBuque & Packett put in to the design of the site. I also commend them for dealing with a tetchy, hands-on client. So, for this week’s post, I encourage you to go have another look at the Urban Design Studio Retrospective website...
(sorry, it's been a busy week)
