Students, faculty advertising university's merits
Thursday, October 27, 2005
An SCSU student took a "Best of Show" honor in a recent advertising/design competition – the ADDY Awards – as did a series of television spots promoting the university itself.
The Central Minnesota Advertising and Design Federation handed Patrick Jannette the Student Best of Show honor for a line of packaging he designed as a class assignment. His entry, chosen from more than 300, has since gone on to win the Gold ADDY Award from the Eighth District, which includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. As a result, the graphic design major's work is now in national competition.
A series of three television ads that "star" SCSU students and faculty members won the Professional Best of Show, the top honor and one that goes to only one entry a year. The three ads aired during 2004 and are appearing again this year in the Twin Cities market and a broad Central Minnesota geography. View them at www.stcloudstate.edu/ucomm
