If you’ve seen our May Annual, you will have noticed a humorous call for entries ad for the Art Directors Club. The same DDB team behind that ad has produced the 91st ADC Annual, which continues to send up the creative industry
The awards annual is the work of DDB New York. Book designers Juan Carlos Pagan and Brian Gartside introduce each section with an illustration by Rami Niemi on a different aspect of creative life. Niemi’s work also appears on the cover in a cheeky reference to ‘big agency dinosaurs’.
Here’s Niemi’s take on the long haul to success.
Spread from the ‘motion’ cageory
And more from the book
