ADDYS 2016: Tailgate, Deep Eddy & Best in Show
What an amazing night at the 2016 American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) last Saturday. We pulled in 10 Golds and, for the second year in a row, we also won BEST OF SHOW for Boulevardia. We're beyond blown away. Everyone in the shop works on Boulevardia, so it really is a team win. You can see what all we did this year in the video below.
We're always a bit surprised by winning but we were even more shocked by the weather on Saturday — the temperature was in the high 70s. For Kansas City in February, that is unheard of. So, we got together with Kazoo Media and Austin Walsh Studio and, instead of prepartying at our normal favorite bars, we threw an impromptu tailgate. And just like any tailgate, there were pizzas, yard games and beers being shotgunned. We just had to be careful not to spill too much fun on our fancy clothes.
Cheers to Kazoo and Austin Walsh Studio for a fun time, and thanks to AAF-KC and all the volunteers for putting on a great show. A shout-out goes to Boulevard Brewing Co. and O'Neill Events Management for letting us do some crazy things on Boulevardia, and congrats to Propaganda3 for helping us make the BLVDIA app as sexy as possible. OK, time for some more Advil — and maybe a nap.
