CAT Student designs UofL's Red Out 2013


T-Shirt for Cards "most important game ever."

 

Congratulations to Travis Strobl on his "Officially Licensed Collegiate Product" that he designed using Ai. As an employee of Cardinal Athletics, Travis designed the University of Louisville's Red Out 2013 T-shirt which is on sale at KFC's YUM! Center. His design received much attention, as the Cardinals final home game played this past weekend, and according to Pitino, was "the most important home game ever." The Cards were playing for a championship AND it was Senior night. The game was won by the Cards and now it's off to the Big East Tournament. WAY TO GO CARDS! And WAY TO GO TRAVIS!

Congratulations to our Louie Award Winners in the 39th Annual Louie Awards

 

Nine CAT program students walked away with a record number of awards Friday night at the 39th Annual Louie Award Competition at the Seelbach Hotel. Our students won 15 Louie Awards: 3 Gold and 12 Silver eclipsing last year's record of 14 Louie's. Our students made history again Friday night by capturing a new record for the most awards ever for our program for the third straight year. Plus, we earned a new record for winning twice as many awards as any other school in the competition for the third straight year. The closest any other school came to Jefferson was 7 awards. Our students are simply fantastic!

 

Alyssa Weber was the first award announced on Friday and when the announcer said Gold we knew it would be a good night. Alyssa won a Gold Louie for her exquisite Bella Amore Wine Package Design.

 

Hadeel Yasser then won Gold for her splendid Smith & Janes Stationery Package Design. I thought she would jump out of her chair she was so excited. Hadeel also won a Silver Louie for her elegant Personal Stationery Package Design.

 

Reba Bangasser won Gold for her CAT Annual Report Design that was quite honestly just superb. Reba also won a Silver Louie for her engaging Personal Lettermark Design.

 

Bethany Gleadle won the most awards of the evening with four Silver Louie's. She won Silvers for her specatcular Mario Self-Promotion Point of Purchase Design, her extraordinary "Homage to Dali" Photo Manipulation, her beautiful Personal Lettermark Design, and her magnificent CAT Annual Report.

 

Emily Richerson won two Silver Louie's for her terrific Mango Island Logo Design and her wonderful Mango Island Newspaper Advertisement.

 

Mary Ellen Howard won a Silver Louie for her fantastic Personal Lettermark Design.

 

Marty Triplett won a Silver Louie for his awesome Oaken Barrell Bourbon Package Design.

 

Olga Skrynnikova won a Silver Louie for her outstanding Gold Rush Vodka Point of Purchase Design.

Congratulations to our students who won. You are simply, Winners!

 

When you see these students in the halls or in your classes, congratulate them. They represented the CAT program and the Jefferson Community & Technical College extremely well.

 

All of you make me, and the rest of our faculty, very, very proud.

 

Terry

Two CATP students win our first-ever Gold at District Five ADDY® Competition

 

Two of our Communication Arts Technology students snagged yet another Gold ADDY® at the American Advertising Federation’s District Five ADDY® Competition last week in Lexington, KY. Joe Laughrey and Duncan Salot won a Student Gold ADDY® in the Television: Student category with their Proof of Concept Texting PSA.

 

This is our first ever Gold ADDY at the District competition. We’ve won several Silver ADDY’s in the past but never a Gold. This also marks our third Gold ADDY® for our filmmaking track in the CAT program, all of them from this year.

 

Joe’s and Duncan’s entry now goes on to compete at the National ADDY Competition with the American Advertising Federation in Washington, D.C.

 

We’ve never had any of our student’s work compete at the national level before. Wish us luck.

The Fifth District of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) represents 11 professional advertising associations and 18 college chapters throughout Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. It is the regional voice of the advertising industry to the AAF. We promote creative excellence through the Fifth District ADDY® Competition and enhance advertising education through the Fifth District National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) and our Scholarship program.

 

Congratulations Joe and Duncan on a job well done. Let’s keep it going.

 

Woo hoo.

 

Terry

 

Here's their winning video.
