Every year we have the same rush of media production, board design and printing and of course with D&AD’s fastidious entry specifications on top of our own checks and corrections there’s always plenty to do. For those not in the know the design and art directors awards are an annual competition which also has a student wing which we enter every year and often have winners. In fact our gdc course director Geoff Thomas-Shaw, we think, has the most awards of any tutor (the tutor and the student share the award). Students who win or come second in a category are given a coveted yellow pencil. At Chelsea we originate, print, board mount and seal all our competition entries in-house.
