This year we had well over 100 entries to our 2D Dog’s Bollocks Student Competition, with a fantastic standard of work from a range of top universities. As always, it was an incredibly tough job picking the winning designs among a huge amount of great ideas, for so many different brands.
The work was laid out in our Penthouse meeting room over the course of an afternoon, and everyone voted for their top three designs. The work was chosen based on our usual Dog’s Bollocks judgement criteria, so it had to tick the following boxes:
Simple but bold
Warm and engaging
Brilliantly executed and crafted
Enduring and memorable
Breakthrough in category
The most popular 20 entries were then judged by a final judging panel. Once again we had the pleasure of welcoming Angus Montgomery, Editor of Design Week to be our guest judge, to help make the final selection, along with Executive Creative Director Graham Shearsby, and Creative Directors Dave Annetts and Tim Vary.
And now we are proud to announce our winners!
Creative Director Dave Annetts commented: “April’s work shone through in two entries, where her instinct for telling relevant and insightful stories about brands was communicated through very different and memorable design ideas.”
Well done to April, Sam and Toby for your fantastic work – and a huge thank you to everyone who entered!
