Last Friday, the Trampoline team stepped out to Michael’s Banquet House in Cohoes for the Albany Ad Club’s 2015 ADDYs. This year’s theme was PROM, billed as “just like High School, but with no class.” Never ones to shy away from a chance to dress up, we dusted off our fanciest duds—after we spent the afternoon listening to Journey and Phil Collins and sharing old photos. Three of us (Kate, Cara and I) were first-time attendees, and while John was in attendance at last year’s awards, this was his first year as a finalist. Dressed to the nines, we brought ten awards back up the Northway to Glens Falls.
Here is the work behind our new glassware:
Our posters that now adorn the walls of Raul’s Mexican Grill took home the Gold ADDY in the Poster Campaign category.
The Finch Opaque Brochure was our first silver ADDY winner of the night for Collateral Material – Brochure, Single Unit.
SUNY Plattsburgh‘s Acceptance Packet and Hashtag Directive found acceptance of its own as the silver winner for Non-Traditional Advertising, Single.
The Giving Report for 2012-2013 at Paul Smith’s College won a silver ADDY for Digital Advertising, Online Publication/Annual Report.
In addition to the 2015 Educational Advertising Award that it won earlier this month, our student recruitment campaign for Paul Smith’s College was a silver ADDY winner for Advertising for the Arts & Sciences, Single Medium Campaign.
Our four-season outings with the Town of Newcomb won silver in the Color Newspaper Campaign category, completing a nice circle around the sun after the Newcomb logo was a winner in 2014.
Our work for CLS Farms in Washington State was also a winner for the second year in a row, with the Medusa Logo joining the CLS Farms parent logo with a silver ADDY in the Elements of Advertising: Logo category.
And last, but certainly not least, we were honored in the Color Photography category for last summer’s staff lumberjack photo (Photo by Rachael Leigh Rodenmeyer, ser.en.dip.iti photography). Seeing our staff projected onto the big screen was a nice curtain call to end the evening.
It’s a meaningful experience to gather together with exceptionally talented advertising professionals and celebrate quality work—it’s even better when you’re doing so at your own table as well as across the ballroom.
