HU Arizona Student Takes ADDY Honors

Huntington University Arizona is pleased to announce that Katelyn Chill was awarded a Student Bronze ADDY Award for her restaurant brand guide for Nick's Restaurant at the 2022 American Advertising Awards. The awards event took place at the Phoenix Ad Club at the Orpheum Theatre on Thursday, March 10. Chill is a junior graphic design major.

“Katelyn’s project was a solo production, while her competition was student ad agencies and groups. To receive one of the top honors in the category is truly an achievement,” said Jeff Del Nero, assistant professor of visual art and graphic design at Huntington University Arizona.

Huntington University Arizona opened its doors in 2016, welcoming students seeking a degree in digital media arts. Since that time, students have created regionally and nationally awarded work, including ADDY awards, BEA Best of Fest awards, and Emmy Student Production Awards. The 30,000-square-foot building houses bachelor’s degree programs in animation, film production, broadcast media, and graphic design. The facility features film and TV studios, high-end computer classroom/labs, private editing suites, a state-of-the-art TV control room, a Foley pit, a host of EFP and cinema cameras, and lighting gear for student production work.
