The D&AD Awards is a prestigious benchmark for creative excellence in design and advertising and yearly, thousands participate in the hopes of bringing a coveted Pencil home. This year, talented TOA students managed to bag not one but two Pencils under New Blood Awards, a special category for students, graduates and aspiring creatives. Michael Lim won a Yellow Pencil (Gold) for his work ‘Transmutation’ and Jessi Afiqa Saidi earned a Graphite Pencil (Silver) for her project ‘Dead Ringer’. Their individual works was centred around telling the recycling story of giffgaff, a telco company based in UK. Using fresh ideas, eye-catching illustrations and extraordinary animations, these creatives wow-ed the panel of judges and emerged victorious. A huge congrats to Michael and Jessi! Keep up the great work!
