Along with the city's traditional strength in automotive, awarded work came from clients like White Castle, the Boy Scouts of America and the U.S. Navy. No, the award was not an American flag; Best in Show took home an ornate D constructed in pipes and gears with a meter reading '2007,' designed and constructed by Detroit artist Jim Ward
The Navy took top honors, with recruiting commercials from Campbell-Ewald, including "Footprints," earning the coveted (and intimidating) 'hardware' pictured above.
Print/Out of Home was taken by BBDO, Detroit, for its auto-as-insect work with Jeep. Campbell-Ewald's "Better Mobility" site for Michelin took Interactive honors, and JWT Team Detroit's White Castle work won the TV category. The Joe, a journalists' award, went to the Boy Scouts of America for its 2006 annual report, out of Latcha + Associates.
Run by a committee of the Adcraft Club of Detroit, the D Council, the D Show replaces the Detroit Creative Directors Council. The inaugural edition included work created between June 2005 to May 2007. View all the finalists
