We did it and the hard work has paid off!
After a very busy, (but honestly amazing!) week at the New Blood festival in London, I am excited to announce….
Myself and Lucy are over the moon to have been awarded a Yellow Pencil at the D&AD New Blood awards!
This was awarded for our work on Adidas Pool.
We were fortunate to attend the awards last Thursday evening alongside our tutors and fellow pencil winners. I am really pleased and it still hasn’t fully sunk in.
We were literally the first winners up on stage (as Adidas was the first awarded) and it felt very surreal!
We both can’t believe it and I am honestly so glad that the hard work has paid off.
There were 21 pencils awarded in that category, with only 3 of them being Yellow.
The awards were a great evening and I understand now why they are so well talked about; there was a great buzz in the air and it was great to see and meet so many talented individuals.
Now it’s on to another busy week, where I will be back in Preston and graduating with a First Class honours degree!
