Neville Brody Designs D&AD 50th Anniversary Logo

The love affair between design legend Neville Brody and the D&AD apparently continues unabated. In the summer, he was given the organization’s President’s Award and just three months later, was named its upcoming new Vice President. Now, corresponding with the red-letter year in which he’ll be serving in the post, he’s designed the D&AD’s 50th anniversary branding. Design Week reports that the identity is called “Forward 50” and features the logo next to a nicely set Futura “50”. Brody describes it as “timeless and yet simultaneously contemporary” and told DW, “We like the way it comes off the page and can be used in any piece of text, as well as in web addresses – conveying the message that everything this year has special significance, without labouring the point.”
