Nettles received a silver ADDY® Award for her project “Persona,” a creation of retail bag and clothing tag designs – making her the first-ever person (student or professional) representing the American Advertising Federation/Pensacola.
“It was an amazing experience to receive such recognition and to meet advertising professionals from around the country,” Nettles says.
Preceding the nationals, Nettles won two ADDY® Awards at the AAF/Pensacola awards, a Student Gold ADDY and a Student Judges Award. She also won a Student Gold ADDY at the AAF District 4 awards.
While still attending Pensacola State, Nettles began working for Duncan McCall Advertising in May 2011. She graduated from Pensacola State with a degree in graphic design technology in December 2011.
