Here’s some information from our friends at D&AD about their 2011 awards scheme. If you want to get your hands on one of their covetable yellow pencils, then you’d better read on…
“D&AD exists to inform, educate and inspire those who work in and around the creative industries, Spatial Design included.
“The annual D&AD Awards are recognised throughout the world. They set the absolute reference standard for creative excellence. A yellow pencil on your desk will get gasps of admiration. And a black pencil? Well, they’ll probably erect a statue of you in the town square. Diller Scofidio + Renfro took home one of these coveted trophies last year in Spatial Design for the High Line (although no sign of a celebratory statue yet!).
“The D&AD Awards 2011 are open for entries and readers of Architonic are invited to enter. Led by Land Design Studio’s Peter Higgins, the dedicated Spatial Design Jury will be looking for original and inspiring ideas that have been brilliantly executed and are relevant, in categories for Exhibition Design, Installations and Spatial Design. Enter your finest work of 2010 before 31 January.”
