London / Belfast UK – The Mission Control Communications today announced its D&AD membership for teams.
James Killoran, Strategy Director at The Mission Control Communications said: “I’m delighted to be an active member of this, the finest creative community in the world.”
Founded in 1962, Design and Art Direction (D&AD, formally known as British Design & Art Directions) is a British educational charity which exists to promote excellence in design and advertising.
Whilst best known for its design and advertising awards, D&AD offers a world of research and training to members with more than 23,000 case studies dating back over 50 years.
“Embedding the knowledge, hands on skills and standards of D&AD within our own values and practices has been a long-term objective,” said Killoran.
“Our team can now continue to take part in workshops and lectures that tackle the ever-changing face of our industry and migrate that knowledge and those skills into the campaigns they are working on with clients. We are already working with a number of clients where D&AD research and insights are being woven into the strategic direction of projects.”

One thing I discovered a very long time ago was that it pays to use your ears a lot more than your mouth in this business. You can learn so much if you are simply prepared to shut up and listen to people with real experience and then intelligently, adapt and apply those insights and that knowledge, with relevance to your own business.
With that said, it’s time for me to shut up and ask you to listen to some snippets from the Cannes Creative Commandments series. This is an ongoing series of posts from Cannes that I share with my own team at The Mission Control Communications, and I hope you find them as useful and inspirational as we do.
