Morris created both campaigns for his creative portfolio course. Assistant professors Mark Swanson and Frank Corridori were his instructors.

Morris developed the big idea for the campaigns and the copy. He collaborated with Nathan Lewis, BJ ’11, on the art and design.

“There’s an irreverent, mischievous side of Morris that definitely comes out in his work,” said Swanson. “He has a knack for speaking the language of the subject.”

Judges for the competition were Chris Hayes, associate creative director, R/GA, Chicago; Jonathan Butts, executive creative director and copywriter, Alt, San Francisco; Ben Williams, associate creative director, Publicis, New York; Mark St. Amant, creative director, Sterling-Rice Group, Denver; and Ben Barry, communication designer, Facebook, San Francisco.

The AAFKC has recognized outstanding advertising campaigns from professionals and students since 2009.
