D&AD Success

26 April 2011

The D&AD results came in last week, and the news has been great for HND Visual Communication.
This year we have followed up our 2010 success with an InBook in Advertising for Abbie Macpherson and Jonny Paterson, HNC Graphic Design.

Abbie and Jonny worked on the Aviva brief - to create a campaign to help Aviva get 500,000 children from around the world off the streets and back into education.  As a measure of just how international D&AD has become, the winners in this category came from the USA, South Africa and Italy.

HND Illustration also produced an InBook for talented illustrator Dan Seex, who tackled the Diesel brief. Both sets of work will be posted up shortly.

A further boost came with a Yellow Pencil nomination in Open Advertising for former student Sam Ngai, who graduated HND last year and moved on to finish his degree at Edinburgh Napier. You can check out Sam's amazing visuals for Umbro on the D&AD website.
