What’s D&AD Festival

D&AD Festival is a celebration of creative excellence, craft and innovation.

Held at The Old Truman Brewery from 25-27 April 2017, get up close and personal with the world’s best advertising and design at an exhibition featuring more than 20,000 pieces of work. Be inspired by keynote talks from global leaders in creativity and craft, and gain first-hand Pencil-winning insights fresh from Judging the D&AD Professional Awards.

You’ll also have the chance to meet fresh talent from D&AD New Blood and taste D&AD’s renowned Training sessions. Advertising and digital agencies, and design studios will also be opening their doors for talks, tours and workshops. Stick around in the evening for networking events and parties.
