DALLAS–(June 2007) -- Padgett Co-Owner and Chairman Winfield Padgett was awarded the 2007 John Carter Award by the Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC) at the annual Dallas Professional Show held at the Trade Mart Saturday, June 2, 2007 in Dallas.
The John Carter Award is presented by the DSVC to a supplier whose service
career has greatly impacted the DSVC and the arts/design industry as a whole. The award is a gold light bulb to symbolize creativity.
“Padgett is proud to have played a role in the success of advertising agencies and design firms throughout the Southwest for over a century,” Winfield stated. “On behalf of all of the many professionals who have worked with the design community over the years at Padgett, I am very pleased and honored to accept this award.”
Padgett has always been a supporter of DSVC and a committed patron of the arts in the Dallas community. Winfield served on the DSVC Board of Directors throughout the ‘70s and early ‘80s.
In 1977, Padgett established The Padgett Award, named in memory of Win’s
father, Hal W. Padgett, and his uncle, Jay D. Padgett. This Award is presented each year at the DSVC Student Show to acknowledge the achievement of an outstanding design student. Padgett also sponsors the winner’s trip to the Aspen Design Conference.
