The D&AD Awards were presented in a ceremony last night in London. The Black and Yellow Pencils, highly regarded in the advertising and design industries, are presented for work in thirty disciplines of design, advertising and creative communication. The solid beech awards are filled, sealed, masked, sanded, primed, painted, sprayed, printed, glossed and packed for a limited number of creatives from around the world.
D&AD President Garrick Hamm said, “The breadth of creative work that’s been awarded this year is exceptional. We’re in the midst of a challenging time, and this work shows what the industry is capable of. The four Black Pencil winners demonstrate the power and all-encompassing nature of creativity – in education, politics and even in the change in our pockets. These winners are more than just great pieces of communication, they change our behaviour and touch our lives.”
