D&AD Graduate Academy

by Nic Farrell

This week I’m attending D&AD’s ‘grad acad’ (catchy eh) and working with a group of fellow designers to create an identity for our group as a whole – something I’m not particularly used to as an illustrator but it’s been so beneficial to be put in such an unfamiliar situation. We’re keeping our plans fairly under wraps for the time being but I will say that so far I’ve learnt some Hindi, how to ballroom dance and how to moonwalk … I’m updating on Twitter (farrell_nic) throughout the week and you can keep up to date on our blog at http://www.welearnew.blogspot.com/ – there’s also a smashing photo of me holding up the hashtag ‘gradacad’ topic … God I’m so down with all this technology.
