Donovan Tinsley Wins 2020 Silver Medal Award

In February, the Tinsley team attended the 2020 American Advertising Federation of Polk County Addy’s ceremony where our Principal, Donovan Tinsley, was this year’s honored recipient of the Silver Medal Award!

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising, creative excellence, and furthering the industry’s standards. 

To our team this comes as no surprise, since Donovan is a seasoned 20-year veteran in the field of all things marketing and advertising. Having managed several retail operations, he gained the knowledge to transition into marketing where he opened AdSource Advertising in 2000. AdSource Advertising is now proudly known today as Tinsley Creative, where Donovan leads and drives our success by cultivating client relationships and providing focused, result-driven, and creative advertising solutions. 

His most admirable trait? His giving heart and spirit. Over the years, Donovan has offered pro-bono marketing and/or discounted rates to local nonprofits and charitable events so that they could succeed in their mission to better serve our community. We’re so proud of Donovan and all that he continues to do to ensure the success of not only our clients, but our team as well.

At Tinsley Creative, we’re a tight-knit family and it wouldn’t be possible without Donovan’s profound passion leading the way. His philosophy is to give more than you take and do it better than anyone else. That to us, is what makes him more than worthy of this prestigious award. Congratulations once again, Donovan!
