Anytime the local Seattle advertising and design agencies gather together, it’s always an occasion to celebrate some pretty phenomenal creative people. But when it's a party honoring and recognizing some of their finest work, it’s called the Seattle ADDY Awards Show. Sponsored by the AAF Seattle, the awards don’t stop with the annual Seattle ADDYs. All Silver and Gold winners proceed on to compete against Northwest Regional winners, and those winners then hit the big stage at the National ADDY Awards.
Hornall Anderson was thrilled to receive a Gold Award for our own Website, a Silver Award for the Garlic Jim’s Gluten-free Frozen Pizza Packaging, and a Silver Award for the Redhook Packaging.
This year, the Seattle ADDYs brought in guest judges from some of the top agencies including Ian Toombs, Anomaly NYC; Cameron Friedlander, Designkitchen; Shanky Das, Goodby Silverstein & Partners; Ramina Khachi, rbx Brand Excellence; and Lotus Child, G2.
Additionally, every year one deserving individual is awarded the prestigious AAF Silver Medal. The 2012 recipient was Seattle advertising icon and long-time friend of Hornall Anderson, Ron Elgin, who just wrapped up an illustrious 30+ year career in the local advertising business.
