Last night was the D&AD awards evening. It was also my son's third birthday so i couldn't go, however as the details, photos and results emerge i certainly feel like i missed a great night. the big winners were apple and fallon. the new venue looks awesome.

controversy is stirring over the lack of winners under the 'graphic design' category - although i fail to understand why graphic design has it's own category. surely it's present as a part of the other categories. was there no graphic designers involved in any of the packaging, digital or branding projects?

anyways info here, photos here, twittering here and winner listings here

i'm going home to polish my pencil.
