Today on "The Lisa D Show" at noon on KHRO 1150 AM we'll interview Joey Ponce, the El Paso designer who competed and won locally in this year's ADDYs, then won again regionally and made it to the national competition and came away with a silver ADDY for student work. "It's rare enough to get national recognition but the fact that it was a student makes it that much better," said Gabe Acuna of the El Paso Ad Federation. See Joey's bio below. We'll talk with both Joey and Gabe today about the opportunities the ADDYs bring young designers looking to take it to the next level.
