The 2017 ADC Awards were announced recently, and D-BROS’s traditional crafts project “D-BROS at GINZA SIX” won an ADC Member Award!

The ADC Awards are given by the Tokyo Art Directors Club which was founded in 1952, and are chosen by all 75 members of the club. Judging on submitted works ranging from posters, newspapers, magazines, TV commercials and others, the members choose the year’s most excellent pieces. This year’s candidate works were published or presented between May 2016 and April 2017 in Japan, and out of approximately 8000 entries, pieces were chosen for 1 ADC Grand Prix Award, 9 ADC Awards, 2 ADC Member Awards, 3 ADC Creator Awards, and 1 Hara Hiromu Award.


This year’s winning “D-BROS at GINZA SIX” is a new project that was developed for the D-BROS GINZA SIX store which D-BROS opened last April 20, 2017. Aside from the goal of relaying the possibilities and fun of design, we wanted to preserve Japan’s traditional crafts for the future, thus we propose traditional crafts from a graphic designer perspective.


The winning pieces are on display at the “2017 Tokyo Art Directors Club Exhibition” which is being held at the Ginza Graphic Gallery (ggg). A D-BROS store is also located nearby, so please drop by our store as well.

In addition, a round-table discussion will be held by Mr. Satoru Miyata and the members of KIGI, Mr. Ryosuke Uehara and Ms. Yoshie Watanabe, who are also D-BROS art directors, to commemorate the win.

During the latter part of the discussion, the three are scheduled to move over to GINZA SIX to conduct an actual tour of the store. Please come and join them.
