What is D&AD? D&AD – home of the talented and skilled, the imaginative and the curious, the restless and the bloody-minded. A source of information and ideas: of professional development, support and inspiration, interesting people to talk and nice things to look at. All creative life is here.

D&AD exists to inform, educate and inspire those who work in and around the creative industries.

What they do? Design and Art Direction is a British-based educational charity which exists to promote excellence in design and advertising. The annual D&AD Awards are recognised throughout the world. They set the absolute reference standard for creative excellence. A yellow pencil on your desk will get gasps of admiration. And a black pencil will probably erect a statue of you in the town square. And alongside all that, D&AD runs a year round programme of events and lectures across the UK and internationally.

Project Overview Gone are the days when offices were typically cubicle, surrounded by white walls and lit by white fluorescent lights. Being a organization of creativity, D&AD needs an unconventional workplaces. This helps stimulate minds and inspire innovation. We are all trying to break the mold and introduce a unique working environment to the team, and hopefully inspire some genius ideas along the way.
