D&AD has revealed its plans for the 2020 New Blood Digital Festival, running from July 6-10 in place of its annual Festival at London's Truman Brewery. The digital festival will provide a virtual platform that continues to support and stimulate emerging creative talent during what will be a challenging year for graduates.
Working with the wider creative industry, alongside its network of educators and student community, D&AD has designed a Digital Festival program that captures the spirit of New Blood and delivers value to emerging creatives. The aim is to provide a space for the industry to connect with the graduating talent of the year, and to create a platform for the freshest young talent to engage with the industry they are about to become a part of.
The D&AD New Blood Digital Festival will entail 5 days of digital talks and workshops, an exhibition of student work, and a support program ensuring the next generation of creative talent has access to the people and resources they need to thrive. The Digital Festival will be industry-led, offering insight, education and inspiration from the movers and shakers of the creative world.
