D&AD Graphite Pencil

I admit I had to look up what the new D&AD Pencil names meant. Wood, Graphite, Yellow, White, Black, etc. Graphite equals a Silver, and it gets a video from the jury chair explaining why it's a winner. Eike Koenig does a wonderful job of talking about the Amnesty International Freedom Candles that I was lucky enough work on. Well done to O&M London and everyone who touched them. Watch the video here.

Cannes Lions

The Dove Ad Makeover collected 2 Silvers and a Bronze in Cannes last week. Two of the prizes came in Cyber which was a happy return to that category for myself. It takes a village to make these projects happen, and you won't find a nicer, better-looking or smarter village anywhere in the world. I look forward to seeing what happens as the Ad Makeover rolls out around the world during this year.
