The Bartlett Summer Show Shortlisted for D&AD Award
19 May 2021
The Bartlett Summer Show 2020 has been nominated in the Digital Design category at the prestigious D&AD Awards.
The D&AD Awards were launched in 1963 by David Bailey, Terence Donovan and Alan Fletcher, a year after founding British Design & Art Direction. Spanning seven disciplines and 42 categories, the awards celebrate creative communication across the arts and advertising industries. The winners will be announced at a live-streamed ceremony over 26 and 27 May.
The Summer Show 2020 ran from 10 September to 2 October. Launching virtually for the first time, last year’s show enabled the school to navigate some of the physical obstacles posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and celebrate the skill, imagination and achievements of its students in a groundbreaking digital exhibition space.
Digital agency Hello Monday worked with The Bartlett’s exhibitions team to create an innovative, walk-through digital environment of 32 rooms showcasing the work of undergraduate and postgraduate students across four programmes. The virtual exhibition hall was augmented by a comprehensive search tool and detailed exhibit pages for each student, enabling the viewer to explore the design process of each project.
Following the success of the Summer Show, The Bartlett brought its Autumn/B-Pro, Fifteen and PhD Research Projects shows online in the same virtual format, and will launch the second online Summer Show on Friday 23 July.
