Last night, the Young Guns 6 competition launched at the Art Directors Club with vodka flowing and sushi to fight for. The walls were decorated with anonymous notes from people revealing a little known fact about themselves, a blackboard strip running the full length of the room to chalk notes on and continuing the voyeuristic theme, designers moleskin sketch books were on display to flick through (with white gloves of course).
Fifty new ADC Young Guns will be chosen for 2008. Winning work will be added to the ADC's permanent collection online and each member of the ADC Young Guns 6 class will receive one-year membership in the organization.
