Paul Gibson Wins Knoxville's Best Web Programmer... for the 4th Time!

VIEO Design's Principal, founder, Lead Designer, and Lead Developer Paul Gibson (yeah, he has a lot of titles) received another title a few weeks ago when he was voted Knoxville's Best Web Programmer for the 4th time.

The award was a part of the 2014 AAF Knoxville Big Wig Awards, and Paul wasn't the only VIEOan who took home an award - Lauren Nelson also won for Best Intern! Lauren was such a good intern, in fact, that she has since been hired as a graphic designer.

Watch their acceptance speeches, along with a few bloopers:


Four other members of the VIEO team were nominated for Big Wigs:

  • Holly Yalove, for Best Digital Strategist/Analyst
  • Emily Winsauer (me) for Best Blogger
  • Chase Cleckner for Best SEM or SEO Specialist
  • Amanda Martin for Best Social Media Specialist


The Knoxville Big Wigs recognize the people behind the best marketing and advertising in East Tennessee. AAF Knoxville is the local chapter of the American Advertising Federation, the advertising industry’s largest professional trade organization.

The winners were announced at an awards gala on October 22nd at Club LeConte, which offers beautiful views of Knoxville. Several members of our team took to Instagram (with varying degrees of success) to share the event:
