ADC Encourages 50/50 Gender Split in Creative Industry, Hosting Event to Emphasize

And rightfully so, we believe–well, at least as an outsider looking in. The headline basically sums it up, but let the Art Directors Club’s executive director, Ignacio Oreamuno, drop some science above about the need for gender equality in the ad industry, not just from an agency infrastructure standpoint, mind you, but award show juries, etc..  And yes, the ADC Gallery in NYC (see here for handy Yelp review/coordinates) is hosting an all-girl photo shoot at the event, which takes place at 12:30PM EST tomorrow and will include the likes of industry notables such as Cindy Gallop, Ale Lariu and more.

A Gala to Remember: Your Final 92nd ADC Awards Recap


 

With the 92nd ADC Awards Gala now in the books (winners list here), we bring our our final entry from the event courtesy of the Art Directors Club’s director of content + communications, Brianna Graves. As she boards the plane back home, she managed fill us in with this brief, somewhat gushing on-the-scene recap.

One would have been hard pressed last night to forcibly wipe the grins off the faces of the attendees of the ADC 92nd Annual Awards Gala.

The majesty of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center, home of the New World Symphony, cast a magic spell from the moment that guests approached the red carpet outside (albeit, in a drenching downpour and tornado warning), then had their photo taken inside before enjoying cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres and a little mixing and mingling prior to the Gala. The mood was lit around the New World Center Atrium by ADC partner Float4 Interactive, who covered the screens above with light and color.

Inside the main performance hall was no less stunning. The venue itself, with incredible sound, performance and lighting capabilities, set the tone of the evening. But when ADC Executive Director Ignacio Oreamuno took the stage to welcome his guests not only to the 92nd Annual Awards, but also to a new era, a new standard and a new future of the Art Directors Club and its Annual Awards, the tone of the evening was solidified. ADC was presenting nothing but the best.

Ariel Adkins, ADC membership associate and author of Artfully Awear, dazzled the stage as the Pantone trophy girl. She accomplished a record number of costume changes designed with a distinct Pantone color in mind, and synced with a complete relighting of the stage and performance hall designed by Float4.
