A big congrats to Thomas Hedger, one of our 30 TDK Awards’ winners for 2018. A Central Saint Martins student from London, their work was chosen by Verònica from Hey Studio: “Of all the portfolios I saw focused on illustration. Thomas is a highlight. Is strange to find an illustrator where all the styles are good. Obviously he knows the techniques and this helps him to go further and experiment in many styles”. We asked Thomas to answer a few questions for next years TDK Awards’ hopefuls.
Daragh J. Anderson
A big congrats to Daragh J. Anderson, one of our 30 TDK Awards’ winners for 2018. A Central Saint Martins student from London, their work was chosen by Dem from Ustwo: “I found myself drawn to Daragh’s work on both a visual and a conceptual level. Each project seems to explore interesting and important topics while achieving an impressive level of refinement, tied together in a very well presented entry. I’m particularly impressed by the elegant response to the D&AD brief, which communicates a powerful message through an engaging medium”. We asked Daragh to answer a few questions for next years TDK Awards’ hopefuls.
A big congrats to Charlotte Hopper, one of our 30 TDK Awards’ winners for 2018.
