D&AD Awards Two Black Pencils

Published on .

An enormous crowd gathered in London on Thursday night for the D&AD pencils presentation, in which the selective jury hardly, if ever, awards black ones. However, two were awarded, one for Leo Burnett Canada's "Big Ideas Come Out Of Big Pencils" website, and the other for the design of the Guardian's relaunch issue. The big TV & Cinema winners were Sony's serene "Balls" and 3Mobile's bizarre "Tuperzik," each of which earned two yellow pencils. One of "Tuperzik's" awards was for direction by Partizan directing collective Traktor, while other yellow pencils for direction went to Academy director Jonathan Glazer's "Ice Skating Priests" for Stella Artois and Blink's Dougal Wilson for Orange's "Dance."
