CANNES, FRANCE: Cannes Lions has announced the presidents for the Design, and Film Craft categories at this year's International Festival of Creativity, taking place from 17-23 June.
Bruce Duckworth, creative director, Turner Duckworth, UK, will lead this year's Design Lions Jury. After working as a designer at Michael Peters, Minale Tattersfield and Lewis Moberly, Duckworth started the brand design agency Turner Duckworth in 1992 with his friend and fellow designer David Turner. With agencies based in San Francisco and London, Duckworth runs the London office and is jointly responsible for Turner Duckworth's creative output with Moberly.
Heading up the Film Craft Lions Jury is Ivan Zacharias, director, Stink, UK. Zacharias began directing commercials while still a student and quickly developed a reputation as one of the most interesting and innovative directors of his generation to emerge from Eastern Europe. His most notable work includes 'Impossible Dream' for Honda, 'Born Free' for Land Rover, 'Smile' for VW Beetle and 'Doctor' for Stella Artois, which swept the boards at award ceremonies. He has also directed Hollywood actors Gael Garcia Bernal in one of two Levi's commercials for BBH NY as well as Harvey Keitel and Jude Law in pieces for the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
