Every year, the New York-based Art Directors Club holds a series of dinners for prestigious creative directors in cities including New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago, Barcelona, Paris, London and San Paolo.

This year, the invitation was designed by an agency from a less high-profile location: Barnsley in south Yorkshire. DMSQD was chosen from 50 agencies to complete the brief – creating an elegant mix of simple illustrations and custom type.
