Introducing the YG12 Winners

More than 30 winners to be honored next Thursday.

The votes have been counted, the trophies have been polished, and the tickets for next week’s extravaganza have been selling like proverbial hotcakes. And now, at long last, ADC is proud to announce the 31 winners of ADC Young Guns 12. 

“We’re incredibly excited to finally reveal this year’s class,” says Brendan Watson, ADC’s Director of Education and manager of the Young Guns program. “YG12 might be the most creatively diverse class to date. We’ve got animators, architects, designers, directors, illustrators, motion designers, typographers, art directors, creative technologists, illustrators, photographers and even a graffiti artist. It just goes to show the breadth of creativity ADC supports.”

The complete ADC Young Guns 12 class is as follows:

Each YG12 winner will be awarded a unique Young Guns Cube at the ADC YG12 Awards Ceremony + Exhibition Party on October 9. Tickets are available here. The YG12 cube was designed and produced at Deutsch NY by Juan Carlos Pagan (YG11), Menno Kluin (YG6) and Brian Gartside (YG12).

Work from the YG12 winners will be featured in an exhibition at the ADC Gallery in New York October 10 through October 30 (Free admission, Monday­–Friday, 10:00am to 6:00pm) and added to ADC’s permanent online collection.

ADC Young Guns is presented by ShutterstockSquarespace and Levine/Leavitt.
