The Best Direct Advertising in the World 2016

We caught up with our Direct Jury at D&AD Judging 2016 to ask what makes great Direct, how to get your work noticed and if there were any pieces of Direct Pencil winning work that really stood out. All these questions and more are answered by members of our panel:

  • Gabriela Lungu - Creative Partner, TBWA\London
  • Nicky Bullard - Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, MRM Meteorite
  • Stefanie Digianvincenzo - Creative Director, AKQA
