Gloo Digital Design was awarded recognition from the global D&AD awards this week. Ranking as the world's most creative awards association, Gloo becomes the first South African design company to receive recognition from D&AD for Digital Art Direction.
It is also the only South African entry selected to go into The D&AD Annual in any digital category this year, selected from the 24,500 worldwide entries.

Gloo's CD-ROM won over the judges, with its multi-layered blend of photography, animation and typography, together with an unusual approach to CD-ROM navigation.

Gloo also managed to achieve prestigious recognition last month from the CLIO awards in America, for their part in Net#works latest integrated campaign for 5fm called Lonely Finger. This time for helping to engage the target audience in a breakthrough way.

Gloo's first year in existence has seen them grab the awards headlines, with five Loeries at South Africa's 2005 Design and Advertising awards and also a Gold digital award at the recent international Design Indaba conference.

Pete Case from Gloo comments: "We specialise in blending traditional design skills with the pushing of technology, to allow the communication of these designs in new and exciting ways for our clients. This latest award highlights our unique blend of skills and is certainly a great way to mark our anniversary. Together with our clients and talented team, I'm confident that we're going to keep pushing our creativity to produce even better work this year."

Gloo's portfolio of work spreads right across the fullest breadth of digital design, including typographic, illustrative and animation skills backed by an unusual and innovative approach to programming, that allows Gloo to help their clients reach their audience with new and innovative media using the internet, cell phones, CD-ROMs, DVDs and much more!

I can't seem to find this entry anywhere on the list of awards finalists at - very strange, any ideas anyone? Gloo are not even listed under nominated agencies if you go 'search'?
