Rapp's Adrian Whatman to chair The Drum Scottish Design Awards

Rapp's creative director, design, Adrian Whatman is to chair the judges for The Drum Scottish Design awards this year.

Whatman, who has worked at Rapp since 2007, will head up this year’s judging panel, which will also include Sophie Lutman creative director at brandpie, Martin Muir creative director at Start JudgeGill and James O'Connel from Creative Spark.

The announcement chimes with an extension of the deadline for entries and Whatman offered up the following advice: "What I look for is the craft, the attention to detail but most importantly the story. Design is just a pretty picture unless it resonates. There is a real art in balancing cool design and the affect it will have on the consumer. If you nail this then you’re in a good place."

The awards ceremony will take place in Glasgow in May with date and location to be confirmed.
