In her final act as President, Harriet Devoy tasked designer Richard Turley, famed for his work on Bloomberg Businessweek, with the following brief: ‘On a shelf of D&AD Annuals, make this year’s stand out.’
Harriet wants everyone in the industry to feel empowered. To know that they are important and can change things for the better. Because, ultimately, everyone is accountable for the work they make, the company they keep and the decisions they make along the way. This work of the creative industry is serious business. It requires real courage.
The message of D&AD Annual 2019 is as follows. Our work can change the world. And, at our best, we keep our sense of humour while we do it.

From the President
For Harriet, Richard Turley was an obvious choice. She said “He’s a prodigiously talented designer, who comes armed with a phenomenal portfolio of challenging editorial covers for magazines and periodicals. He’s the guy that made Bloomberg Businessweek a must-read and revived MTV. The D&AD Annual feels like where his work belongs.”
