Third-year BA (Hons) Illustration student, Deniz Gunsav has been selected as one of six winners of the Hotel Indigo D&AD Brief.

The prestigious D&AD New Blood Awards recognise young up-and-coming creatives. Deniz’ submission, ‘Stone Guests’, plays with the idea of classic luxury and modern conveniences, alluding to both being available at the Hotel Indigo.

Speaking about her work, Deniz said: “For my work, I have chosen Rome. ancient Roman artefacts are quite recognisable and, in my opinion, easily capture the essence of the neighbourhood. I have picked a few well-known marble sculptures located in Rome and integrated with the hotel’s facilities. In an ironic way, I aimed to bring ancient world nostalgia into a modern day in Hotel Indigo.”

We are happy to congratulate Deniz on her achievement and look forward to her work being recognised at the D&AD New Blood awards in London between 11-13 July.

We expect to see further AUB Illustration students join her on the awards stage as further awardees are announced closer to the event.
