Today, social media feeds have inundated us with pictures of pencils. That’s because today is D&AD’s pencil day, on which most winners of D&AD awards receive their pencil trophy.
It’s become one of the creative industry’s most covered prizes, with freelancers, agencies and magazines picking up awards. It was originally designed by Lou Klein in 1966, who then himself went on to win 5 awards.
Here’s some agencies who had a pencil in the post today.
