Thomas Kolster recently judged the D&AD Impact Awards in New York. D&AD Impacts exists to recognise creative ideas that are driving positive change. This is done by elevating purposeful products, initiatives and campaigns.
This year, the Future Impact Programme showed a new way forward. This category encompasses all ideas that impact the natural world. From the preservation of the planet to enabling communities to live sustainably and responsibly, the “Environment and Sustainability” category covers everything that has an impact on nature, wildlife and the health of our environments.
The Future Impact Programme contained a lot of different themes, but according to Thomas, one general theme was diversity. The winners from the Future Impact Programme will have the opportunity to make use of their won prizes and hopefully turn the money into impact.
