D&AD’s New Blood Awards celebrate the best in student creativity. Each year, students from around the world respond to briefs set by a cross-section of brands, charities and other organisations.
This year’s winners will be announced on July 7 but ahead of the ceremony, we have picked out some of our favourites, gathering them under a series of themes that have come out of the work submitted.
In this post we have selected our favourite storytelling projects from this year’s entries.
