Watkins graphic design students are among the most honored in the country through their submissions to regional, national and international advertising design competitions. In the past two years, Watkins students have collected 47 gold and silver Nashville Student ADDY awards, including Best of Show, and have claimed a significant number of top-level prizes at the district and national ADDYs. Department chair Professor Dan Brawner, recognized as a “top instructor” by the international visual communications journal Graphis, says “Expect a crisp, lean, smart show featuring the very best of Watkins Graphic Design.”
