Design Students "Trump" the Competition

March 8, 2016

The 2016 Kansas City American Advertising Awards was an entertaining night for all parties involved. Graphic Design seniors Alexi Chadbourne and Ben Grace swept the student awards race, defeating all other candidates to earn the ONLY student golds awarded. Ben was also awarded the coveted student best of show! Both students have since been approached by companies interested in meeting, and potentially hiring them, as a result of the awards night. Equally exciting for Avila was the success of Roberto Camacho, a 2011 graphic design alumnus. Roberto works for Whiskey Design, the studio awarded the overall best of show for their work on the Boulevardia campaign. It was an all-around GREAT night for Avila graphic design! Proof that an Avila graphic design degree = SUCCESS.
