Showcasing the talents of the future.
As a recovering awards addict, I’ve judged, chaired and entered most creative shows around the globe, but the one closest and dearest to my heart is the D&AD Student Awards.
I was thrilled to be asked back to judge this year’s category ‘Make Your Mark’ and was so impressed with the work that I decided to give up our window space (usually reserved for talking about ourselves) to showcase this year’s nominations. We’ve called it ‘Tuned in to the Future’.
In many ways the Student Awards are more important than those for the professionals. The Pro awards are ‘post’ the event, a pat on the back from your peers. The Student Awards are about the future.
They remind us how to look at life in a different and original way, with a smile, tons of enthusiasm and a spirit that only bright young things can bring.
With more students graduating this year than ever, they need our support and we’re proud to be ‘Tuned into the Future’.
