Two editions of the D&AD Annual set to launch

D&AD_Annual09.jpgTwo versions of the D&AD Annual will be published over the coming months, containing the best creative work of the year. Members will receive their limited edition book from D&AD from 22 September and for the first time an edition will be published by TASCHEN that goes on general sale in early 2010.

The Annual showcases 748 entries selected by juries made up of the world's leading experts in advertising & design.  This year's work comes from 38 countries and includes 54 Yellow Pencil and 4 Black Pencil winners, entries awarded for setting new standards in creativity.

The D&AD Annual 2009 Members' edition was created through a unique relationship between Peter Saville and Luke Sanders, a graduate designer. The design process throws light on D&AD's education mission through a series of graphic statistics.  This book launches on 22 September at the London Design Festival.

D&AD's new partnership with TASCHEN aims to promote the best creative work to the widest audience. Designed by Jeremy Leslie, the book will be published in hardback and will be translated into 6 languages and distributed worldwide.

Says D&AD President Garrick Hamm: "My first love of ideas came from stumbling across the 1985 D&ad Annual in my Somerset College library. I decorated the walls of my flat with Peter Saville's work from posters to cassette covers. His artwork has always been with me and led to my first love of graphic design. It was an honour and a thrill to ask Peter to get involved with this D&AD Annual, which I am sure will be a collector's item.

"I started the year saying I wanted to see The Annual back in bookshops, and it's such a pleasure to end my Presidency knowing the book will be arriving on shelves soon."
