Of 164 nominees, Bryan Ische ’09, Taylor Snyder ’09, and Ben Johnson ’11 were named winners at the AdFed & Ad2 32 Under 32 awards held in late June. The award recognizes the thirty-two best and the brightest young advertising, marketing, PR, and creative professionals in the Twin Cities.
Ische is a designer, art director, and developer-hobbyist with a unique perspective on how to go about his work. He believes every design decision should have a reason behind it and says he is "always learning new things."
Johnson (aka benjayway) specializes in typography, branding, print collateral, illustration, and identity systems. He has worked with Life Time, Caribou Coffee, and Starbucks.
Snyder describes himself as a "hybrid creative." He has impressive design experience, having worked with the likes of MRM Worldwide and Target's Creative Agency.
Faculty member Nancy Rice also served as one of the five judges.
