D&AD Awards 2008 announces list of design juries

Jury members for D&AD Awards 2008 have been announced. Graphic design will once again be split into three juries, to be headed by Tony Brook of Spin, Aziz Kami of Kantar Group, and Adrian Shaughnessy of ShaughnessyWorks.

Other juries announced include book designer Irma Boom for Book Design category, Michael Johnson of Johnson Banks for Graphic Design 2, Terry Jones of i-D Magazine for Magazine and Newspaper Design, Phil Carter of Carter Tomlin Wong for Packaging Design, Vince Frost of Frost Design for Typography, and Howard Fletcher for Design Writings.

Tony Brook, Creative Director, Spin, said, “Having been asked by D&AD to be a foreman in the Graphic Design section of this year’s awards mingles my excitement with a sense of responsibility. Sitting in judgment of so many hopes is heavy stuff. Like a cub scout, I promise to do my best.”

Other juries will be announced in the coming days. The deadline for entries is January 16, 2008, and entries before November 14, 2007 will receive a 10 per cent discount.

Book Designer Imra Boom said, “It is important to experiment and not be afraid to create utter failures sometimes. There is a lot to explore in a technical way and even more importantly, in terms of content and form.”

Phil Carter, Creative Director, Carter Tomlin Wong, said, “Being asked to be the foreman of the Packaging Design jury is a huge honour but also a privileged opportunity to gain an insight into the best packaging design from around the world. I hope to see work that challenges, surprises, enthralls, excites, jumps out from the norm, beautifully crafted and original – wherever it originated from. In fact, work worthy of getting into ‘the book’ and maybe winning a Pencil on the night.”

Aziz Cami, Creative Director, Kantar Group, said, “I’ve been entering works into the D&AD Awards for more than 25 years. In all that time, designers have always said the same two things: ‘The Awards are too expensive’, and 'How the hell did that get in?’. When you see the quality and scale of the fabulous educational work D&AD does, you realise this is money well spent. If you only enter one award scheme this year, then D&AD has to be ‘the one’. As far as what wins and what doesn’t, no judging process is perfect, but D&AD is more perfect than any other scheme I have ever come across.”
