The 2018 Rockie Awards Show was a raucous and rowdy affair as usual, and good times were had all around.
A few notables from Saturday night’s event:
The Silver Medal Award went to Sherie Moody-St. Clair from the Idaho Lottery
Drake Cooper took home Best of Show for their J. A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation work.
Oliver Russell and Scentsy both won at the regional level as well — a Gold regional ADDY for Oliver Russell and a Silver for Scentsy. Oliver Russell’s submission has since been forwarded to the national competition.
Congratulations to all the winners.

Hanna & Associates in Coeur d’Alene is looking for a Controller to join their staff. This job listing was recently spotted on LinkedIn:
Oliver Russell in Boise has an opening for a Senior Designer / Art Director. From the job listing on their website:
Here’s the person we’re looking for:
You’re a team-oriented individual with a bent toward strategy and a strong identity skill set, but you should have outstanding design chops across all media, from packaging through digital.
You’ll need to be strong in developing a concept and able to implement it as well—we are a small and flat organization. (You should also be comfortable getting dirty on a volunteer project to rebuild trails in the Boise Foothills or helping rearrange furniture to accommodate a speaker’s event in the office. We’re a collaborative place, we work hard, and there’s no job too big or small for anyone.)
You’ll have a strong desire to change the world and will have demonstrated an active pursuit of social purpose in your career, which could come to life through volunteering, advocacy, past work for social enterprises, or perhaps even something else. Tell us about it!
You must have strong communication and presentation skills. Emphasis on presentation—you will need to present your ideas at the same high level of quality as the work you have created.
You’ll likely have 10+ years professional experience. While an agency or professional services background is preferred, it’s not a must.
Full details about the position and how to apply can be found on Oliver Russell’s website.
