Here Katz, part of the team behind DDB South Africa’s Wood Pencil-winning Skittles work, talks us through this year’s wins for the agency, their previous D&AD ‘pencil box’ record and their strategy to keep those international accolades coming…
We’ve had a great awards season this past year, having added Cannes Lions, Loeries’ golds, LIAs and various other metal to our trophy cabinet. Winning a D&AD in radio makes us especially proud considering it was the only radio spot to take a pencil in the 30-second category. Produced by Produce Sound, it was up against some extremely tough competition!

Team DDB South Africa with their D&AD Pencil.
We’ve done well at D&AD in the past, having taken multiple awards in the past three years and we plan on continuing the winning streak in the future. Our ultimate goal is winning the coveted Black Pencil, and we most definitely have the drive and talent in the agency to do so.
Besides doing effective work that shows results for our clients, we believe in every brief we receive there’s a magical idea just waiting to come to life. We’ve currently got some great pieces of work and we’re especially looking forward to Cannes and going up on that stage as we have in the past.
Here’s hoping for much more of that great South African work to come! Click here for a reminder of all of South Africa’s 2017 D&AD Pencil winners.
