Winning a D&AD Pencil remains one of the greatest creative achievements, our recent wins bring our total awarded pencils to 13 over the last 7 years and the incredible Yellow Pencil win for Burberry marks the project as one of our leading successes. The ‘Fashion Storm’ picked up a VES Awards for Outstanding Compositing In A Commercial, a Clio Silver Award for Outstanding VFX and was voted Creative Review Annual winner for Best Visual Effects and was Televisual’s No. 1 Commercial of 2020.
