BOZEMAN — Montana State University design students competing in the student division of the 2016 Montana American Advertising Awards, called the ADDYS, won 14 ADDYS, as well as Best of Show.
“The talents and skills of the MSU students can be easily seen in all the Addy contest entries and the winners show the high level of creative thinking that our Graphic Design students have attained,” said Jeffrey Conger, professor of graphic design in the MSU School of Art, a part of the MSU College of Arts and Architecture.
The MSU graphic design students received nine silver and five gold ADDYS. An entry in Outdoor Advertising by Emily Brosten was named Best of Show.
Gold ADDYS were awarded to the following MSU graphic design students: Emily Brosten, Makenzie Guyer, Emily Ketteler, Jaimee Parker and Carling Peck. Silver ADDYS were awarded to individual and team efforts by Nevin Bryers, Ryan Corbett, Erik Dale, Rachel Finnegan, Sam Fischer, Emily Gunderson, Shayne Kybartas, Anna Pierce and Sarah Tuma.
Students competed in several student division categories including: app design, book design, cover design, guerilla marketing, integrated brand identity, magazine advertising, outdoor advertising, package design, point of purchase and poster design.
All of the MSU student ADDY winners from the state competition will be forwarded to the AAF District XI Student ADDY competition in April 2016, where their work will compete with other colleges and universities from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
