The winners of the D&AD 2007 Global Student Awards have been announced, with the top prize, the D&AD Student of the Year, going to Scott Evans of the University College for the Creative Arts, who won with a music video for Thom Yorke's "The Clock."
Seen here, however, is the inventive First Prize winner in the Graphic Design/Typography category, a London Horror Film Festival poster by Nick O'Brien of Kingston University. Also showcased here: the First Prize project in the Environmental Design category, by Paloma Reed, also of Kingston University, who was charged with designing an installation for The Architecture Foundation's new building in London; and the First Prize Graphic Design winner, by Jacob Blandy, Fredrik Sterner and Hampus Gunnarsson of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, whose brief was to "create memorable and eye-catching graphics to launch Park House, Land Securities' new development to be built on London's Oxford Street."
The D&AD Global Student Awards continues its annual growth, this year attracting more than 3,600 submissions from 41 countries, with almost a third of entries coming from outside the U.K. "The work just gets better and better every year," says D&AD education chairman Garrick Hamm of the 2007 D&AD Student Annual, which will feature 394 entries. Hamm also notes an interesting U.K. cultural shift: "Gone are the days of creative directors drinking their way around every graduate show ? now they have the luxury of a little yellow book arriving on their desk."
