The D&AD Pencils have been recognised globally as one of the ultimate creative and design accolades since their establishment in 1962.
Ogilvy Johannesburg got a Graphite Pencil for its ‘Sad Man’ radio work on KFC Everyman Meals and a Wood Pencil for online creativity in the Pre Joy campaign for Cadbury Dairy Milk Bubbly.
Brand activation company Geometry Global Cape Town and Ogilvy Cape Town received Wood Pencils for collaborative design work on The Slave Calendar produced for the Iziko Slave Lodge Museum.
And Ogilvy Cape Town garnered a further Wood Pencil for Amarok Social Test Drive in the Creativity for Good category.
Ogilvy SA chief creative officer Pete Case says D&AD Pencils, with their significant design heritage, are truly coveted awards and he is “delighted to see our creative teams getting such global acknowledgment”.
