D&AD has launched its 57th Annual - a collection of the best in creative work across the design and advertising industry. This year's annual is designed by Richard Turley, who is renowned for his portfolio of challenging editorial covers for magazines and periodicals, such as re-imagining Bloomberg Businessweek and reviving MTV.
"Richard is an obvious choice for the cover," stated Harriet Devoy, D&AD President. "He's a prodigiously talented designer, who comes armed with a phenomenal portfolio of challenging editorial covers for magazines and periodicals. He's the guy that made Bloomberg Businessweek a must-read and revived MTV. The D&AD Annual feels like where his work belongs."
Each year, The D&AD Annual curates the best creative work across the design and advertising industry - showcasing all D&AD Pencil winners from that year's awards. A benchmark for the best in creative work across the design and advertising industry, the 2019 Annual shines a light on work with real conviction that shifts culture and shapes global narratives.
"Previous iterations of the Annual have excelled in graphic design as precision engineering," Turley commented. "I wanted this one to feel warm and human. Vulnerable maybe. And a bit dumb."
