The 2019 D&AD Festival, UK's largest event celebrating global creative talent, returns May 21-23 to The Old Truman Brewery, London. The theme for this year's Festival is 'Shaping the Future,' echoing D&AD's position as an organization on a mission to drive the creative industries forward.
This theme is reflected in this year's identity, designed by Village Green, which looks at the dynamic interchange between 2-D and 3-D elements inspired by D&AD's brand and the creative industries. To highlight the connection between the disciplines celebrated at the Festival, the identity uses experimental graphic forms and motifs that 'reshape' in dynamic and unexpected ways.
D&AD Festival brings together the biggest names in creativity to share their thoughts and insights on the future of the industry with an incredible line-up of talent across various creative sectors. Those who attend this year's Festival will enjoy three days of talks, debates, briefs, workshops and parties.
"For this year's D&AD Festival, we chose to focus on the future," commented Harriet Devoy, D&AD President. "D&AD Festival will give us a glimpse at the upcoming trends in creativity, and those attending will get to hear from some of our industry's leading figures. It's going to be fascinating and inspiring."
