Emmanuel Adjei Wins Silver at District II Advertising Competition

In 2018, then-senior graphic design student Emmanuel Adjei, Scranton, Pa., won a silver ADDY in the student District II American Advertising Award competition from the American Advertising Federation. Mr. Adjei won the silver Addy for his poster design “Sounds of London”. The District II competition includes New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware.

Mr. Adjei was eligible for the District II American Advertising Award competition as a result of winning the Gold Award for his poster, Sounds of London, at the NEPA American Advertising Federation Awards Ceremony, which was held at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Scranton, earlier this year. He was also awarded two Silver Addy Awards for his packaging work, Shackleton Vodka, and for his hand lettering campaign series in the “Dream Big” category.

While a student at the University, Mr. Adjei was one of two artists commissioned to paint the Entrepreneurship mural on the third floor of the Learning Commons at the University. He was the founding member of the student exhibits on campus, including Genesis: Art Through the Ages, and Revelations: Reflections of our Society. Mr. Adjei was also a member of the men’s soccer team during his sophomore and junior years, and he was one of the artists commissioned for Scranton Made, under the direction of Christine Medley, associate professor and area coordinator of graphic design at Marywood University.
