D&AD Student Awards

April 24, 2012

Finally an update on my third year university work!

I recently tackled two D&AD student award briefs, and here are the results:


An original cover illustration for Little White Lies magazine, depicting the main character of the movie Black Swan.

An identity and a TV spot designed to brand and to launch a new over 60’s channel for Channel4.

Even though I failed to get recognized in the actual awards, it was refreshing to get to work on live briefs. And I do believe that the end results are definitely a great addition to my portfolio.

      Thank you! It was all positive really. The only this I found tricky was not being able to find a way to explain or present my technique behind my illustration entry when submitting.
