Interactive Art Director students win Art Directors Club Awards cubes

Interactive Art Director 2009 students Christian Söderholm and Dennis Rosenqvist received Gold and Silver Cubes in the 88th Art Directors Club Awards.

Last Thursday, the two students went to New York to the annual Art Directors Club Awards. Back home they brought not only the experience of meeting people from the industry around the world, but also not less than two Art Directors Club Cubes!
Gold in Interactive and Silver in Integrated Advertising. Both for Skara Sommarland and the “Take the Challenge” campaign.


– Now we really look forward to the results from the nominations in the CLIO Awards, says Dennis Rosenqvist. Sadly, we can’t afford to go to the gala in Las Vegas. Besides, we have to work a little at our placements too, he continues, laughing.

We previously blogged about Christian and Dennis being on the Clio Awards 2009 student shortlist. Now they're also nominated in the D&AD awards!

D&AD released their nominations for this years student awards last Friday, Christian and Dennis are among the nominated with their work for BBC.
– Fantastic to receive yet another nomination, says Christian Söderholm.

The awards will be announced at the D&AD Student Awards Ceremony on 2 July 2009.
– Of course we hope for the best, Christian continues. A D&AD pencil would be an honour to receive. Especially if you think about the fierce competition.
