Graphic design student brings home national ADDY award

Poster for "Mr. Burns"Dominic Grijalva, a graphic design student who expects to graduate in December 2017, took home a prestigious national Student Gold ADDY Award from the American Advertising Federation for his poster design for the Selma Arts Center‘s production of  “Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play” last fall (pictured at right).

National ADDY Award Winners were honored Saturday, June 10, at the American Advertising Awards ceremony, the closing event of ADMERICA 2017, the AAF’s annual national conference.

Winners were selected from more than 39,000 entries nationally and won at local and regional levels before advancing to the national competition.

Two other designs by Grijalva – “Brighton Beach Memoirs” and “Stageworks Fresno Season 2016” – received Student ADDY bronze awards at the local American Advertising Awards competition in March. At the regional level, “Mr. Burns” won a gold award and the other two received silver awards.

Grijalva was featured in an article last September about how his interactions on social media with ‘Hamilton’ creator Lin-Manuel Miranda led to a design commission. More of Grijalva’s work can be seen on his website.
