Competition: D&AD

Berghs practices a teaching philosophy called action-based learning. We provide students with theories and tools. Then, we ask them to apply that to practical cases.

Our students take that philosophy to global competitions like Young Ones – the student section of a globally acclaimed award ceremony, D&AD New Blood, Young Glory, Future Lions – and many others. Scroll down to take a look at some award-winning student work from our students over the last 10 years.
