So proud of Simone Wärme and Klara Vilshammer Christiansen from KK1 who’ve been chosen to attend the D&AD New Blood Academy in July! The Academy is an intense two-week creative bootcamp for 50 of this year’s New Blood pencil-winners. They’ll be mentored by top creatives and pushed to their limits through a packed programme of talks, workshops, hacks and live client challenges. They could even win a paid internship within the WPP global network. The team got in with a video where they had to ‘be themselves’ and answer 10 simple questions, like “What would you do in London?” and “What inspires you?”. See their Spice-girls-inspired submission here … parental guidance advised!
The international D&AD New Blood Awards have been announced, and … we have two teams up for a pencil!

And Simone Wärme & Klara Vilshammer Christiansen from KK1 won for their World Wildlife Programme project, “One world hero”. (Fantastic!) Here is the winning work …
