British Design & Art Direction has commissioned illustrator Marion Deuchars to handwrite – in pencil, naturally – its Annual Review, which is published this week. D&AD executive member Howard Fletcher wrote the text and designer Vince Frost came up with the creative concept – D&AD: what’s the point?. Frost Design is responsible for the design and art direction of the review, which features contributions from 28 past presidents including Mary Lewis, Alan Fletcher, Michael Wolff, Rodney Fitch, Martin Lambie-Nairn and John McConnell. In March, Deuchars was shortlisted for her work with Penguin Press in the Design Week Awards.
