Tuesday night was the D&AD 50th Awards.
It was good. I had a good time. Lots of nice people were there. They gave awards for awards - specificially awards for who had won the most awards in the last 50 years.
Good people won. All the ads and designs back in the day were amazing. Actually, ads were significantly simpler in the 70s / 80s. And better for it. Made me wonder that if today's ads get replayed in 50 years time everything will need a 20 minute explanation before you can play the app, viral, transmedia extravaganza.
The olds are all like "This is a pint of lager. It's the best pint of lager I've ever had. End frame."
De La Soul played, they were brilliant.
Jony was there. He brought the whole team on stage when they won most awarded design studio of the last 50 years. Nice touch.
