D&AD New Blood Shift

Talent isn’t about where you’ve been, or who you know. And it’s not about having a university degree, either. It’s about raw ability – and opportunities.

D&AD are back for another round of New Blood Shift – an intensive night school programme, which you can complete around your current job. There are workshops and talks by those at the top of their game and real client briefs to test your creative minds in ability and craft.
