7 Graphic Design Students Compete at the Los Angeles ADDYS

The American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) are the Super Bowl of the advertising field. Every year, it draws 35,000 entries to local competitions across the U.S. We want to congratulate the seven Graphic Design Online students who placed in the Los Angeles American Advertising Awards competition for 2020. These students can move up to regional and national American Advertising Federation (AAF) competitions where they can compete against other professionals.

Lisa Gustafson is the senior program director for the Graphic Design Online degree program for LAFS. She helps prepare students to become visual innovators for a variety of fields including advertising, product development and motion design.

“We were very impressed with the quality of our student submissions, and we are excited to see their work recognized by this professional organization,” said Lisa Gustafson.
