D&AD Visit to Renegade

D&AD Visit to Renegade

It’s really amazing how quick things can happen in NYC. On Tuesday I went to an event that the D&AD were putting on for the first time in North America. Afterwards I talked with Laura Woodroffe who helped organize the event. During that conversation I thought it would be cool for D&AD to come visit Renegade (where I work) to talk about the organization. Two days later D&AD was in the studio. Laura brought two others, Ruth Metcalf and Rebecca Rollin both from D&AD. They showed us their Black Pencil reel and the 2006 Yellow pencil awards reel. They also talked about the three parts that make up the organization: Excellence, Education and Enterprise. This week long tour was one of the first of it’s kind in North America for D&AD. By the sounds of it, they will be making an annual event that possibly would be their awards exhibit and Professional Development sessions – hopefully starting in NYC. I know it was a great experience for all of us at Renegade and we thank Laura, Ruth and Rebecca for coming to share their passion for D&AD.
