Notworking at the D&AD Awards

1 July 2010

Earlier this week, I attended the D&AD Student Awards Ceremony at Old Spitalfields Market, London, along with HND Graduate Artur Pasiek and Tutor David Wilson. Students and Tutors from as far away as Stockholm, San Francisco and Hong Kong attended the event.

It was a great way to end a hugely successful year for the Design Team. We had a place at the Body Shop table, accompanied by Body Shop's Design Director Scott Corbett, and the Brand Communciations winners - Maarten Nefkens, Menno Drontmann and their tutor Wim Michels - from Hallo Academy of Applied Creativity in Amsterdam.

For Artur, this was a chance to reap the benefits of his hard work. He already has a number of agency offers on the table, and now has the prospect of a two week placement with the Body Shop in London.

As well as awarding lots of well-deserved Yellow Pencils, the D&AD people provided some great hospitality. including a brilliant afterparty and BBQ which took place at The Vibe Bar and was organised by Notworking specialists, Glug.
