On Sunday, March 19 we were privileged to attend the 2017 ADDY Awards luncheon, hosted by the Coastal California chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Searle had entered two websites into this competition for the “best of” advertising and marketing in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. We are so excited to share that our sites for Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce (www.catalinachammber.com) and Moreno Valley Economic Development (www.morenovalleybusiness.com) were each honored with a GOLD AWARD for Consumer Website and Business-to-Business Website, respectively. Even better was that we had a lovely time at the luncheon and got to see wonderful creative work as well as meet some pretty terrific people in the industry. Thank you AAF and Mark Landon, chair of the American Advertising Awards Coastal California, for putting on such a great event!
