VIEO Survives the 2018 ADpocalypse


February 24th could have been a dark day in the history of advertising. There could have been untold destruction as the ADpocalypse fell upon an unsuspecting world. Luckily, the VIEO Design team was there save the day at the 2018 Knoxville ADDY Awards by looking fabulous, eating a lot of cake, and taking home some hard-earned awards. We know, we really took one for the team, and you are welcome.

The competition at the 2018 Knoxville ADDY Awards was about as fierce as I imagine an actual apocalyptic survival scenario would be - just with less riots and much more friendly celebration. And cake.

We're happy to be based in Knoxville with so many great marketers and advertisers around us. Competition helps us all grow, after all. Our amazing team worked incredibly hard last year - and we have the awards to prove it! 

Our ADDY Award-Winning Web Design

VIEO Design took home 3 Silver ADDY Awards for our hard work in 2017.

  • Staylist Responsive Website Design Elements of Advertising, Digital Creative Technology, Responsive Design
  • Staylist Responsive Website Design Online/Interactive, Websites, B-to-B
  • South College Website Design Elements of Advertising, Digital Creative Technology, Responsive Design


From beautiful color palettes and excellent typography to well-placed graphics and minimalist animation, the web design team is rightfully proud of their work on the Staylist website. "My favorite part about Staylist is the way you navigate through the homepage. It feels satisfying," says Lauren Nelson, Graphic Designer extraordinaire

Our Design Director, Melanie Chandler, also cites the importance of speaking to your demographic for website success. The inviting colors and strong, relatable visuals helped turn South College into an award-winning site. 

We also took home 2 Bronze Citations of Excellence!

  • South College Website Online/Interactive, Websites, Consumer
  • Anakeesta Responsive Website Elements of Advertising, Digital Creative Technology, Responsive Design


We had a blast admiring all the great work going on in our hometown of Knoxville and being as extra as humanly possible in regards to wardrobe at this year's awards. We can't wait to see how we stack up against next year's competition!

And who knows, maybe your website will be our next big winner.
