Digit presents the hottest new talent from this year’s D&AD New Blood show – check out the graduates on the verge of taking on the creative industries. Part 2 of 2.

Creative talent is the lifeblood of the industry – and where better place to start shifting out young-gun designers and bright young artists than the world-famous D&AD New Blood exhibition, which premiered at the end of June 2005 at Old Billingsgate in London.

Representing the blood, sweat, and creative juices of graduates in graphic design, advertising, digital media, packaging and product design, illustration, photography and communication arts, D&AD New Blood is a veritable feast of this year’s graduate talent.

Digit teamed up with the D&AD to exclusively showcase the best New Blood work. Each piece is accompanied by a description of the brief, as well as contact details for each student, should you want to end their Pot Noodle diets and help them work for food. Or beer.
