Our commercially savvy, sometimes romantic, often cynical, and occasionally rather weird friends at D&AD (“home of the talented and skilled, the imaginative, and the curious, the restless and the bloody-minded”) are sharpening their coveted pencils in preparation for awards season. Having assembled the juries for categories ranging from art direction and branding to mobile marketing and “crafts for design,” they’ve managed to squeeze all of the Yellow- and Black Pencil-award winning work from this year into two image-packed, music-backed minutes. See all the work in full, with credits, on the D&AD Archive, and then get to prepping your entries. Entries will be accepted through January 30 (procrastinators who pay a late fee have until February 6).
