This year, Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun had the pleasure of being on the jury for the D & AD Impact council! D&AD Impact seeks to identify and celebrate these great, transformative, creative ideas that have had real impact and, ultimately, contribute towards a better, fairer and more sustainable future for all. Judging a range of projects, campaigns or products in their beta phase or final iterations condensed into specific categories in the likes of civic engagement, education, humanitarian aid, and environmental sustainability. 

Sitting alongside a plethora of pioneers such as Debbie Millman from Design Matters and Anthony Casalena the founder and CEO of Squarespace, Nelly sifted through the projects judging them on the eligibility of criteria which included originality, progressive contributions, shifting perceptions, the innovation of the project and finally the entry’s alignment with D&AD Impact’s values- its scalability and future plans!

The results will be released in the coming weeks and we can not wait to see the results. Congratulations to all applicants!
