I was really excited to hear that one of my favorite Portuguese newspapers won the prestigious D&AD Yellow Pencil Award. The annual D&AD Awards are highly respected, and regarded as a major event in the world of design and advertising. Público (Portuguese for Public) is a Portuguese daily national newspaper, widely regarded as a newspaper of record. It began publication on March 5, 1990, and since then it has been at the forefront of Portuguese journalism and alternative methods of information delivery. Here’s Público’s award entry and the list of 2009 winners at Creative Review.
