113. D&AD Success.

dandad.jpgCongrats go out to three teams from a class that I taught at the Miami Ad School (San Francisco branch) for their success at this year's D&AD show. They worked hard (and on a completely unrealistic timeline) and deserve the recognition. Soak it in - recognition doesn't come often enough in this business.

Niklas Hertzberg and Samuel Moore were awarded a commendation (third place) for their 'Red and Black' work on the Capital One direct mail brief. This was an ethical take on the increasing levels of consumer debt.  James Beikmohamadi and Jake Blumenau were awarded a Pencil for their 'Eulogy' solution to the same brief. (This was an invitation to actually bury your old high-interest rate card.) A third team of Bryan Denman and Jess Davis were also awarded a commendation for their copy solution 'Notes' to the Lonely Planet brief. This creative featured the notes of the popular travel guide authors as they explored a particular country. If you are looking to hire young ADs/CWs - all of these guys are solid individuals with talent. Of course, not all have graduated yet.

I forgot  to mention that both Sam and Niklas are copywriters. Needless to say two writers winning an award from D&AD is quite an impressive feat.
