D&AD Student Awards 2012

As I said in the last post, yesterday marked the 2012 D&AD Student Awards, so I thought I would use today to show some of my favourite pieces of work from them.

We’ll start with this fantastic piece of packaging design by Ben Lambe for a brief to design a new Scottish Whisky to appeal to an international female consumer. It won a ‘Best of Year’ award.

Giles Pearson won a yellow pencil in the Installation Design category. It was one of two overall for my uni (University College Falmouth), with the other coming in the Radio Advertising category. Pearson has created a really engaging and creative solution that promotes great viewer interaction.

There were three great pieces that caught my eye in the Graphic Design category. The brief, which was set by Pentagram, was to create a supplement for The Typographic Circle looking at talks by designers.

Devin Japiter, Germaine Chen, Jolene Siow, Judith Lee Ying Long and Muhammad Reza created this set of three which contains some great use of colour and won a ‘Best of Year’ award.

A yellow pencil was awarded to Elin Mejergren, Josefin Janson and Nicole Kärnell for this piece which contains some really nice layouts and great use of tip-ins.

Noah Collin got a ‘Best of Year’ award for his design which used coloured inks to great effect.

In Publication Design, students were tasked with telling the story of D&AD 2011. Alice Tosey won a ‘Best of Year’ award for this fantastic stop-motion style website.


I’ll finish with this awesome comical piece of work from the Moving Image category. It received a Yellow Pencil Nomination for Adam Alexander and Scott Wooden in a brief set by HP to bring to life your creative workstation. It’s a shame in my opinion that it didn’t end up winning a Yellow Pencil.

Look at all the entries and winners from all the categories here.
