DDB Germany wins ADC Agency of the Year
NEW YORK, June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — DDB Worldwide has been named Network of the Year at this year’s 100th Anniversary of the ADC Award hosted by The One Club. The ADC Annual Awards is the world’s longest continuously running awards program recognizing global excellence in craft and innovation in all forms of design and advertising. This year presents creatives from around the world with the once-a-century opportunity to be part of history by winning a coveted ADC Cube in the prestigious show’s 100th awards season.
DDB Germany has also been named ADC’s Agency of the Year. Their work for Reporters Without Borders, The Uncensored Library, was awarded the Best of Discipline in Experiential Design, the coveted Black Cube for Best of Show, and the Designism Award. The Designism Award is given to one entry that encourages positive societal and political change.
In total, DDB Worldwide has been awarded 21 Cubes, including 7 Golds. DDB Paris took home 14 Cubes for clients Ubisoft, Volkswagen, and Glenmorangie. Adam&eveDDB has been awarded a Bronze Cube for their John Lewis Give a Little Love campaign.
Ari Weiss, Chief Creative Officer, DDB Worldwide said: “Advertising has always been one part art one part science. I had a boss once that said a great piece of communication is 80% craft and 80% idea. He wasn’t great at math, but he was great at making his point. To see our craft celebrated like this by an organization like ADC really validates the journey we’re on as a network to love the craftsmanship as much as we love the idea.”
