D&AD, a global association for advertising and design communities best known for its annual awards program and festival, has made a “significant reduction” in staffing due to revenue lost from the stay-at-home orders put in place as a result of Covid-19.
CEO Patrick Burgoyne, who has held the role since December, “unselfishly volunteered to relinquish his role and step down,” according to D&AD.
The cuts come months after D&AD announced the cancellation of its namesake festival, which was slated to take place May 19-21 in London, to prioritize the “health and well-being” of attendees and staff.
