The D&AD 50 Celebration Award Dinner and After Party celebration takes place tonight. My dear friend and co-judge at last years D&AD Awards Darius Ghanai, has flown over especially from Berlin to join me for the night and to groove on down to Grammy awarding winning De La Soul at the after party.
The night is celebrating the individuals, brands and businesses that have shaped the creative industry and honouring those who have collected the most Pencils over the last 5o years.
The awards being presented this evening are for the 'Most Awarded - Ad Agency, Design Studio, Production Company, Brand, Art Director, Copywriter, Designer and Director'. They'll also be recognising those who are setting the future standards, with the presentation of this year's Yellow Pencils and announcement of the Black Pencil.
Tonight's celebration is also going to be streamed live at 2100 BST for those without tickets to be able to watch. Here' the link for the live feed: http://www.dandad.org/dandad
For those who are coming, both Darius and I 'look forward' to meeting old and new friends. See you there.
