Marion Deuchars on Illustration at D&AD 09

Posted in Submissions/Competitions by The Department of Illustration on May 22, 2009

Not unqualified praise for the illustration section from judge Marion Deuchars, who laments the lack of groundbreaking work being entered to the competition despite being aware of the immense creativity within the illustration industry. Do illustrators simply not see D&AD as ‘for them’ and the domain of graphic design and advertising? Why is this? She suggests that as illustrators often work as individuals the collective emphasis of the projects, or how they are presented within colleges and within the industry means illustrators feel the competition is ‘off their radar’ see the interview on the CR blog
