Founder and group chairman of The Jupiter Drawing Room honoured at awards ceremony
Founder and group chairman of The Jupiter Drawing Room, Graham Warsop, was this weekend inducted into the Loeries Hall of Fame. This is the first time that this has been awarded to a non-South African.
The honour recognised the contribution that Warsop has made to the South African industry over the past 25 years, and the role that he has played in shaping its reputation globally.
Warsop’s creative recognition over his career have been nothing short of impressive, and were even more so at the time, many helping put South Africa on the map as a creative powerhouse. From being the first South African CD to have print work accepted into the prestigious D&AD Annual in London, to winning South Africa’s first Gold Lion for print at Cannes.
Among many accomplishments, he was the first local creative to judge the ‘big four’ global shows, Cannes, D&AD, One Show and Clios and, most recently, became the youngest ever inductee into the New York Festivals Hall of Fame, for outstanding creative achievement measured on a world scale.
On the other side of the ocean, Warsop was declared the Most Awarded Creative Director in the 20 year history of the London International Awards (in second place was global industry legend Marcella Serpo from Almap BBDO in Brazil). [READ THE FULL PRESS RELEASE HERE.]
