For over 40 years, the UNLV Alumni Association has recognized exceptional alumni, faculty, students and community leaders who represent the ideals of higher learning and Rebel pride. Their outstanding achievements and leadership at the university, throughout the community and around the globe are celebrated in grand style at the annual awards dinner. This year, Canyon Creative was chosen to rebrand and promote the prestigious event.
Canyon Creative's Art Director, Joslynn Hupe, played the lead role in naming this year's event, designed the website, and created the marketing materials, including save-the-date, invitation, billboards, social media ads, print ad, event program, menu, table number cards and place cards. "It was a real honor to be selected to do the creative work. But, seeing the award winners and hearing about what they've done to make a difference was really inspirational," Joslynn said.
Lea Lumba, Canyon's Social Media Coordinator and UNLV alumna, said, "My experience at UNLV was phenomenal and I'm so proud of all the people who won awards. Attending the ceremony and seeing our creative used in so many aspects of the event was the cherry on top of the sundae! "
