Angela Stiff Receives AAF Montgomery’s 2019 Silver Medal

MONTGOMERY, AL — February 15, 2019 — AAF Montgomery has named Angela Stiff the 2019 recipient of its highest achievement, the Silver Medal Award. The award will be presented before a gathering of her peers, friends, and family at the American Advertising Awards gala on February 22 at the Capital City Club in Montgomery, AL.

The Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF member clubs bestow this honor upon outstanding members of the local advertising community.

The Silver Medal is the highest award that can be given by AAF Montgomery. Silver Medal recipients are selected by a panel of judges from each local club.
Within 10 years of founding Copperwing in 1999, Angela Stiff succeeded in growing the company into one of Alabama’s leading communications firms. From the beginning, she understood the power of design systems and the difference they can make for a company. She founded the firm with brand management as its cornerstone, recognizing its critical role in creating breakthrough communications with long-term relevance. Over the course of her career, Angela Stiff has achieved countless accolades, but she’s most proud of how she has helped clients and individuals achieve their own goals.


As Copperwing celebrates 20 years, Angela continues to lead with the same out-front thinking as she sets the vision for the firm. As Copperwing’s creative director who oversees general operations, she has successfully led branding initiatives for clients with regional and national reach. Her creative work has been recognized with numerous industry awards.

Dedicated to providing today’s students and tomorrow’s professionals opportunities in visual arts education, Angela has served as a member to Troy University College of Communication and Fine Arts Advisory Council, and currently serves as member and secretary to the Auburn University Department of Industrial and Graphic Design Advisory Council.
