Yesterday was quite a surreal day!
The D&AD Results day was marked in my calendar for several weeks before - the closer it was getting, the more nervous I began to feel. It wasn't nervous because I felt confident that I would be awarded, neither was it because I was nervous that I wouldn't be awarded at all. I felt nervous because I knew that Friday had the potential to be an amazing day but it could have easily just been like any other.
I had worked myself up all morning, refreshing my email constantly and checking the website now and then. Then I read their Tweet revealing that all successful students would be notified by email at 5PM. As they did with me.
I COULDN'T BELIEVE THE NEWS - I WAS ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY
I didn't know much more about the details of my award until my tutor told me that I had been been awarded 'Best Of Year'. I couldn't believe the news - I was absolutely blown away. I feel honoured to have been awarded by D&AD and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me over time.
More details about the other successful submissions will be available to view online on Monday. I am looking forward to seeing the talent that I am honoured be recognised amongst.

Tax Payers' Alliance
I was given the opportunity during an internship this Easter to create a video for the Tax Payers' Alliance simplifying the Income Tax and National Insurance situation in UK at the moment.
This video went live Friday morning at 8am. It was exciting to see my work in the public domain. See the video via the YouTube link below.
More updates due soon!
