The achievement of a D&AD nomination can’t be overlooked. A massive well done to Mark Longworth, standing on the podium in the Grand Prix of Graphic Design, the Tour De France of Visual Communication, the Olympics of Creativity. A truly fantastic accolade for Mark (pictured at the D&AD New Blood Awards ceremony in London last night) in only his second year of studies in Graphic (17)
