Suttle-Straus is excited to be the recipient of 4 ADDY Awards from the Madison chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). This the 12th year in a row that the Creative team at Suttle-Straus has been recognized.
The ADDY Awards recognizes creative excellence across the country though a three-tier competition that begins with local AAF chapters. It has become the world’s largest advertising competition, with only the best of the best advancing to the national level.
The Madison chapter of AAF held their awards event the evening of Saturday, February 16, 2019 at Monona Terrace. Suttle-Straus had nine team members in attendance to receive the awards, which were given either gold or silver designations.
The following projects won an ADDY:
Gold: Suttle-Straus Awards Night Invitation

The invite printed digitally to include variable data including each employee's name and photo and mailed in a red cellophane see-through envelope.
Silver: SUTTLE-STRAUS Awards Night Poster
This matching awards night poster used a sliding pair of decoder glasses to reveal details about the upcoming dinner event.
