VIEO Design lead designer and web developer, Paul Gibson was awarded "Best Web Programmer" in AAF Knoxville's second annual Big Wig Awards. This is Paul's second year winning the Best Web Programmer award and we couldn't be more proud!
Fellow VIEO Design team members in attendance were Maria Talley, Andrea Presley, and Holly Yalove. We were all decked out in "Cyborg" attire (although we admit, we looked somewhat like mutant Zombies...oh well).
Nominations for the award came from within the East Tennessee communications community. The goal was recognizing the "unsung heroes" of advertising and marketing. Paul was one of 3 finalists this year in the Best Web Programmer category.
The Big Wigs awards night held October 27, 2011 included a costume celebration at one of our favorite local restaurants, Latitiude 35.
The VIEO Design team enjoyed the chance to connect with fellow marketing and advertising professionals including WBIR's Erin Donovan, PostNet owner Joani Leeds, Knoxville Opera Marketing Director Michael Torano, our good friend and Orange Apple Branding owner Susie Norris, and Designsensory's Josh Loebner.
Josh won the first annual Unsung Hero Award for outstanding dedication and devotion to the principles and ideals of the advertising community. You can check out Josh's new blog called advertisinganddisability.com.
As VIEO’s chief strategist and one of our principals, Holly Yalove serves as the head digital and inbound marketing strategy for our clients. She has used her extensive management, sales, and marketing experience to dramatically increase our digital marketing business, helping us become the well-rounded agency we are today.
