In 2019, the world of marketing and advertising is in transition. Technology and user experiences have reshaped the landscape. There are now tools to create pretty much anything you can dream up. The question is, who is dreaming up the best stuff?

“The Addys honor the best and brightest, the most clever and creative, and the people that push boundaries to take our industry places it has never been.”

Well, at this year’s Philly Ad Club ADDY awards, held on March 14th in Center City’s Ballroom at the Ben, Hanlon was proud to be recognized as one of the premier visionaries in a city filled with talent.

The American Advertising Awards are the largest and most esteemed venue for acknowledging creative talent and the spirit of innovation. Thousands of submissions from the finest agencies in the region vie to be crowned as top exemplars in advertising, marketing, film, digital, and design.

The Addys honor the best and brightest, the most clever and creative, and the people that push boundaries to take our industry places it has never been.
