D&AD’s 50th awards

D&AD’s famous award scheme hits 50 next year. Neville Brody has designed a special identity, and there’s a celebratory film to encourage entries…

D&AD‘s famous award scheme has been running since 1962, and so to celebrate and also to encourage entries to its 50th awards, the organisation has created a kind of greatest hits video, highlighting winners from the last half century…

The 50th awards also has its own identity (shown top), courtesy of Neville Brody who set it in Futura and designed it to function as a graphic identity – but also as an identity that can be represented in any typeface on any document and even as an addition to urls. The awards, rather like CR’s Annual 2012 (see our earlier post), are now open for entries.

So then, who can name every brand featured in the film, and the corresponding agency that brought it D&AD glory?
