Georgia Southern Art Students Stand Out at American Advertising Awards in Savannah
The 2015 Savannah American Advertising Federation Awards banquet was held Saturday, April 2, 2016, at the Creator’s Foundry in Savannah, Ga. Georgia Southern brought home seven ADDY awards for outstanding graphic design work.
“Our students are among the most talented in the region, and we’re very proud of their accomplishments,” said Robert Farber, chair of the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art.
“Events like this one give our students an opportunity to see how the skills they learn in the studio are applied in the marketplace and shows them how they measure up next to their peers.”

Hillman also took home a special judge’s award for her design work. Judge Glen Hosking, Executive Creative Director at Dunn & Co. in Tampa, Fla., called her work, “Informed Design. Very Professional. Believable” and “Good enough to be used immediately.”
“This is a proud moment for BFSDoA as well as for me as a graphic design professor. There’s nothing so rewarding for me me as a teacher than to see my students succeed,” said Associate Professor of Graphic Design Santanu Majumdar. “I am proud of the students who have won and participated in the prestigious awards like ADDYs. I would like to see more achievement in coming years.”
Other judges for this year’s ADDYs were Jason Craig, Senior Designer at Wier/Stewart in Augusta, Ga., and Dale Addy, Partner at DNA Creative in Nashville, Tenn.
