Gregory Bonner Hale has designed this year’s D&AD Annual as well as its showreel and call for entries for next year’s awards campaign. GBH began work on the project in mid-January, says a spokesman. The Annual, to be published in December, features 63 per cent more work than last year, with a wider page design by Esterson Lackersteen. The book is covered in a soft yellow duster, embroidered with the D&AD logo, with which to polish the awards.
