 This
letter
serves
to
nominate
Sarah
Jones
for
Designer
of
the
Year
as
presented
by
CNBAM.
 
 Sarah
joined
us
in
the
summer
of
2008.
She
started
as
the
assistant
creative
director.
 She
showed
great
skills
and
an
amazing
drive
to
always
get
better.
Most
members
of
the
 production
staff
stay
away
from
the
marketing
department
and
the
newspaper
staff,
but
Sarah
 has
gotten
to
know
her
co‐workers,
and
she
even
sits
in
on
sales
meetings.
Her
out
going
 personality
has
allowed
her
to
build
working
relationships
with
people
in
the
office,
which
 allows
for
an
easier
work
environment.

 


Sarah
is
never
shy
about
asking
questions.
She
works
hand
in
hand
with
the
marketing


staff
and
the
clients
to
develop
the
perfect
ad
for
each
campaign.
Hard
work
and
a
dedication
 to
her
job
make
Sarah
one
of
a
kind
when
it
comes
to
being
a
designer.
Coming
from
a
 marketing
standpoint,
Sarah’s
ability
to
throw
in
her
own
opinion
in
how
a
client
should
design
 their
ad
helps
us
to
sell
more

color
ads
and
larger
ads.
Not
only
does
she
design
the
ads,
but
 she
also
shows
her
skills
when
it
comes
to
discovering
ways
to
increase
readership
and
help
out
 student
media
as
a
whole.




Sarah
was
thrown
into
the
position
of
creative
director
because
of
a
graduating
co‐

worker.
Since
then,
she
has
risen
to
the
challenge
and
done
very
well.
Even
with
the
economy
 the
way
it
has
been
this
year
Sarah
has
created
many
ads
with
all
positive
results.
Sarah
is
 constantly
getting
better
and
continues
to
be
an
integral
part
of
student
media.

 


I
am
sure
that
there
will
be
many
great
designers,
but
I
assure
you
that
none
put
in


more
effort
than
Sarah.

 
 Thank
you,

The University Daily Kansan

Austin Falley

Design Portfolio

g n i t e k g r n i a s M erti ign dA v mpa aC


January 2, 20010 Dear CNBAM Judges, I am writing to you to recommend Austin Falley for the award of Designer of the Year. This past year was Austin’s first as an ad designer for The University Daily Kansan and in that time he demonstrated versatility, a great work ethic and of course great skill in producing ads. One of the things that strikes me as I look at Austin’s portfolio from this past year is the range and quality of his work. At one moment Austin can be working on a small ad promoting a local piano bar and the next be doing a series of full-page, full-color ads promoting Lawrence’s largest night club. He produces superior work with clients as large as Kansas Athletics to clients on a smaller scale like a jewelry store in downtown Lawrence. To each ad though Austin approaches it with as much professionalism and creativity as possible satisfying not only the account executive but more importantly the client themselves. His work is not only visually arresting but perfectly designed for the student readers of our newspaper. He creates ads for his zone members far ahead of deadline and stays until he feels the ad is absolutely perfect. And if an ad needs to be designed at the last second Austin still finds a way under a tight schedule to make it work as well. A great example of Austin’s versatility is demonstrated through one of The Kansan’s largest advertisers; Abe and Jakes. The Kansan has held a great relationship with this nightclub for many years now working on numerous co-promotions and ad campaigns that have helped make it the number one nightclub for students in Lawrence. In the Spring of 2009 Austin started working on the campaign and produced a series of visually striking ads centered around once a month promotions that the nightclub was throwing and that were a continued success. In the Fall of 2009 though the owner of the nightclub informed The Kansan that he was looking to shake up their image a little bit. Due to budget concerns they could no longer afford to just run a series of full-page ads to promote the club weekly, they needed to get smaller and more frequent. Austin and the account executive met with the nightclub and crafted a campaign that gave them more frequency and at the same time helped accomplish another goal of the nightclub; promote a better overall image. Rather than designing full-page, fullcolor ads Austin now designed smaller 1/8th page reverse ads, unique looking L-shaped ads and quarter page ads for The Kansan’s entertainment products. His hard work has paid off as Abe and Jake’s has enjoyed even greater business but more importantly seen their dollars stretched into more frequency and even more creative ads. Austin’s work has also helped to promote a better overall image of our newspaper. One of the big themes that The Kansan works for is to help make the student readers feel involved in the paper. One way we’ve worked to accomplish this is through a co-promotion with Kansas Athletics where students submit slogans for an annual game day shirt and then vote on those slogans with the winning slogan awarded prizes and put on a t-shirt for all to buy. After last year both parties felt that the campaign had become a little tired so we asked Austin to give it a shake up and he delivered admirably. The campaign Austin produced was modeled after World War 2 recruiting ads and helped deliver the message to students that they should get involved as it was THEIR shirt. The message across The Kansan was hit with hundreds of shirt submissions followed by thousands of votes for the winning slogan; “We Walk the Walk and Rock the Chalk” and more importantly the sense of pride with students has continued as we’ve sold already after two months double the number of shirts that we did last year all together. More importantly it helped to create an even stronger bond with our readers. In addition Austin designed a branding campaign for the paper displayed t-shirts, tote bags and playing cards handed out to incoming freshmen that built brand loyalty from day one as 86% of freshmen surveyed revealed they were reading The Kansan.


Austin works with many of our other ad designers to make their work better. When one walks into the production room you can often find Austin spending time with some of the paper’s younger designers helping them brainstorm solutions to problems, work through technical gaffes and produce better work over all. In addition to coaching others Austin craves knowledge for himself by working with some of The Kansan’s more senior designers to find out how to make his own work better. When one of our production staff is under the weather or bogged down by class Austin will eagerly chip in to help lay the paper out for the night to help out all parties involved. Austin’s skills as a designer have benefited not only the staff of the Kansan but its clients as well. His innovative and creative thinking have helped to create a tighter bond with our readers. And he has also found a way to teach others how to become better designers as well. When looking at all of this combined I can think of no better candidate from our paper and I hope you will see fit to reward him with this prestigious award. Sincerely, Jon Schlitt Sales and Marketing Adviser The University Daily Kansan


January 2, 2010 Dear CNBAM Judges, I am writing to you in support of Austin Falley and in the recommendation of him as recipient of Designer of the Year. In the past calendar year, I have worked more with Austin than any person on our staff to create and deliver quality advertising products and results for our clients. His design ability and experience has made my job as an account executive easy and enjoyable as we worked together on many different projects. Austin’s performance at work is tremendous, and it is a testament to his work ethic. He has created fantastic ads not only for me, but also for others on staff he works with. The first person in the office every morning, he is always there to create and touch up ads at a moments notice. His ability to balance school, another part time job at a bank, and his job at the University Daily Kansan really shows his tremendous drive and discipline to excel in all three fields. With regards to his portfolio, it is wide-ranging and very diverse. I am impressed with his ability to shift his focus from a small black and white ad to a large one filled with color in a matter of minutes. He truly has an eye for design and thinking outside of the box. His unique approach to ads within our Abe & Jakes campaign is the best I have seen in my five semesters on the University Daily Kansan. His work on this campaign in the past two semesters has been amazing. His creative mindset and strategy he puts forth when creating ads for Abe & Jakes nightclub is simple yet very effective. When he created the numerous full-page full color ads for Abe & Jakes this past year, for events such as Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, Stop Day, Back to School Party and Halloween, he had an idea going forward for each. Whether it was an artistic picture that caught the reader’s attention, or the manner in which the text in the ad was displayed, these ads were very reader friendly and helped Abe & Jakes increase student traffic to their establishment. In analyzing the design of Austin’s ads from a sales and marketing standpoint, I feel he accomplished this better than any designer on staff. As a designer with clients that include bars or nightclubs, such as Abe & Jakes, the Barrel House, and Frankie and Johnny’s, it can be tough incorporating their image and message in the paper in a graphically pleasing way. Austin has always made it a point to keep his ads classy and clean with little clutter as possible. It portrays an image of quality and consistency that can be found in the University Daily Kansan day after day. When Austin and I inherited Abe & Jakes as our client, their ads in the past had not been as pleasing to the eye or creative as we had liked. Austin and I went back to the drawing board and really wanted to create an image of Abe & Jakes that they had been seeking since being crowned Lawrence’s best nightclub. Through focus groups and other brainstorming, we accomplished the goal of creating a clean and consistent ad campaign seen in his portfolio that is CNBAM worthy. Another campaign I enjoy viewing but did not work with Austin on was his “Search for the Shirt” campaign last spring. His nostalgic use of famous World War II ad images was something I had never seen before incorporated into a college newspaper. The interesting and extensive use of these images not only produced a classy and classic ad campaign, but one that was extremely successful as well. Many students sent in their idea for the next KU Game day T-shirt, and I know a lot of that credit has to go to Austin and his hard design work. Credit must also be given to Austin for his work with me on a client, Scooter’s Coffeehouse, in the spring of 2009. Austin created an eye-pleasing coupon for free coffee that was an insert in the newspaper. That coupon resulted in over $10,000 worth of coffee sold to KU students while at the same time establishing Scooter’s as top of mind with students.


The final and most important aspect of Austin as a designer is how he interacts with clients he works with at the University Daily Kansan. Austin has been my creative for the past two semesters, and he has been on more client calls with me than I can remember. He always wants to be part of the sales process when interacting with clients. The presence of Austin there for myself cannot be put into words. He has helped me pitch and sell numerous ad ideas and designs to clients with me, which greatly helps the sales process. I feel comfortable taking him on client calls with me because he is a very smart, well spoken young man who can effectively communicate what an ad or campaign will do for a client from a design standpoint. He has accompanied me on almost every Abe & Jakes client call I have ever been on, and I believe that is the reason our relationship with that establishment is so successful. Ryan Lantz, the manager of Abe & Jakes, knows both of us on a first-name basis and really enjoys interacting with us. When Ryan informed me this past semester that they were looking to cut their ads dollars a bit with our publication, Austin helped me in creating an ad campaign that was just as effective as our previous one. He really cares about their business and seeing them succeed, and a cost effective campaign going forward established by Austin and I will keep that relationship healthy. Simply put, Austin is an incredible designer and thinker who is always pushing the envelope when it comes to creating advertisements and campaigns for the University Daily Kansan. His commitment to excellence is second to none, and he truly has a vested interest in the success of his clients and the well being of our fantastic publication. I know for a fact that I would not be where I am at the University Daily Kansan had it not been for my close creative work and friendship with Austin. I heartily endorse him for Designer for the Year, and I hope my sentiments are echoed in your decision. Sincerely, Todd Brown Senior Account Executive University Daily Kansan

December 17, 2009      To whom it may concern:  I would like to nominate Elizabeth A. Howell for CNBAM’s Designer of the Year award. In 2009,  Ms Howell was instrumental in the planning and design of sales fliers; the 2009‐2010 rate card;  outside projects; an H1N1 PSA campaign; and an image campaign   for Student Media.   Beginning in spring 2009, Ms. Howell's talent and work ethic were evident in the layout and  design work she did while creating advertisements for clients of The Daily Gamecock  newspaper. Also in spring 2009, Ms. Howell served as an editorial designer creating editorial  layouts. She acted as a de facto liaison between the advertising and editorial design staffs  sharing knowledge and information whenever possible to the betterment of both groups.  During May 2009, Ms. Howell spearheaded the design of the Student Media 2009‐2010 rate  card.  For the rate card, Ms. Howell created a custom illustration for the cover; acted as lead  designer directing a fellow student designer’s work; and coordinated student photographers.   Also, Ms. Howell met with sales reps to find out what needs they had for the new rate card. The  final product was well received by clients and sales reps and is an entry in the CNBAM Best  Printed Rate Card category.  In summer 2009, Ms. Howell worked closely with the Advertising Manager and student sales  staff to produce numerous special section sales fliers for the fall 2009 semester. Along with the  sales flier design, Ms. Howell also created 5 covers for the special sections. This coordination  produced a sales flier‐special section cover set with consistent design and information, which  made them better sales tools.  During summer 2009, Ms. Howell worked with the Student Organizations Coordinator and  Student Government leaders to produce three manuals: Advisor’s Handbook, Treasurer’s  Handbook and Fundraising Handbook. The publications were designed as e‐publications and  were disseminated via Student Government Web site or email. The client was very   


pleased with the layout and design of these publications – which originally were assigned to  separate designers, but at the client’s request were turned over to Ms. Howell.  In the fall 2009 semester, Ms. Howell worked diligently and with minimal supervision as lead  designer on an H1N1 PSA campaign. Student Media and Student Health Services partnered to  create a campaign consisting of several print and online ads to educate the Carolina community  on preventing the spread of H1N1 flu; vaccinating against traditional and H1N1 flu; and  treating the sick. Ms. Howell created the campaign’s overall design and supervised its  implementation in black and white and color newspaper ads; full color magazine print ads; full  color fliers; and Web banner ad PSA. The campaign ran for the entire fall 2009 semester. It will  run in the spring 2010 semester as well.  Also during the fall 2009 semester, Ms. Howell acted as the lead designer in creating the  Student Media image campaign “It’s Worth A Look”. Ms. Howell collaborated with another  student designer to create the campaign theme. Then she took charge of the project. Out of her  own initiative, she scheduled a photo shoot in a College of Media Arts studio for eleven models;  scheduled a student photographer; coordinated with the Director of Student Media about  getting pizza and drinks for the models; and acquired a student videographer to film the photo  shoot. After the photos and video were taken, she edited the photos for use in print and Web  and worked with the student video production staff in creating two 30 second spots. She later  uploaded the videos to Youtube.com and have been deployed on the Student Media Web site.  Also, Ms. Howell did the design and layout of the campaign’s black and white and color  newspaper ads; full color magazine print ads; display case graphics; full color fliers; Web  banner ad and Web site banner artwork.   The breadth of work accomplished by Ms. Howell in 2009 is impressive. All through the year,  Ms. Howell used her talent as a designer to elevate the work in our office; was a dedicated  employee willing to take charge; collaborated with students and staff; displayed uncommon  leadership for a student; was able to solve problems on her own; and was able to get things  done with minimal supervision. At every turn, Ms. Howell’s dedication, talent and work ethic  surpassed my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend her for CNBAM’s Designer of the Year  award. She is the ideal nominee.    Sincerely,        Edgar Santana  Creative Director
