The Adelaide Advertising and Design Club (AADC) is heading into its 46th year with two new Co-Presidents at the helm; Studio Manager of Simple Integrated Marketing, Taylor Martin (pictured right) and Managing Director of Showpony Melbourne, Jamie Scott (pictured left).

It’s with a great deal of thanks that the club says goodbye to outgoing Co-President, James Rickard.

“James’ aim was to leave the club in better shape than he found it, and thanks to his enormous effort over the three years he was President, we’re in great shape,” said Scott.

“The club enjoys financial strength, a large membership base, a full executive committee and strong support for the annual awards.”

“Under his leadership the club has created strong bonds with universities, built a mentoring program, increased the number of events – which members can enjoy with discount – and importantly, recognised and acted upon the gender inequalities in the industry via She Creates.”

Rickard said, “the AADC Committee now has the perfect balance of gender, age and experience coupled with passion and energy. Under the leadership of Jamie Scott and Taylor Martin, I have absolutely no doubt it will achieve its very ambitious agenda.”

“Education at all levels, promotion of local businesses, a constant reminder about the true commercial value of creativity and engendering a genuine sense of collaboration are all key drivers of member and sponsor value, ensuring the Club goes from strength to strength.”

“I am in awe of the individuals who constantly and selflessly donate hours usually spent with family or running a business. The time and expertise they volunteer are priceless as they do so for no other reason than to improve the industry they love.”

“They have set the bar high and will work tirelessly to reach their goals. They not only need, but deserve, the support of all in the creative industry.”

Martin has held the role of Club Secretary since 2018 and is thrilled to be appointed Co-President by fellow committee members. At just 27, she’s one of the youngest and only the second female Co-President in the club’s history.

She said, “I’ve believed in the power of the club from my very first introduction to it back when I was a first year student at UniSA, and can’t wait to begin delivering back to this industry which I am madly in love with.”

“The respect and admiration I have for each and every individual who makes up the AADC is huge. I’m chuffed to call them my peers and am excited to achieve great things together.”

Martin shares the role with Jamie Scott, who joined the club as Co-President in 2020 after being involved in South Australia’s advertising and design industry for over 20 years.

The AADC was established in late 1975 to promote and maintain high standards in the fields of South Australian advertising and design.

The club creates and supports a wide range of initiatives that inspire, defend, connect and promote South Australia’s creative excellence and provide opportunities for the betterment of its members, and the community at large.
