Two students in Avila University’s School of Visual and Communication Arts recently attended the American Advertising Federation Kansas City ADDY Awards ceremony and returned to the University with more than they had when they left – a lot more.
Sean Allen, a senior graphic design major from Independence, MO, won a Gold Award for his Landfall Navigation brochure, a project under the supervision of Professor Susan Lawlor. He also took home a Silver Award for Notes from Home, under the supervision of Professor Eric Winter.
Alexzis Thomson, a senior graphic design major from Harrisonville, MO, won two Gold Awards for her promotion and advertising for a blood drive called the Blood Ball, also overseen by Winter, and her work for Horticulture Magazine, under the supervision of Lawlor. Most impressive was that Thomson’s Blood Ball was named Best of Show in the student category.
