Young Guns 15 WINNERS

2017 — Now under the umbrella of The One Club for Creativity, Young Guns 15 returned the competition to an open entry process, encouraging young creatives from a broad range of disciplines to apply. By seeking out talent from beyond the design and advertising worlds, Young Guns 15 received a record number of entries from more than 40 countries.

The YG15 Jury was made up of nearly 50 acclaimed creatives, equally balanced between men and women, and with just over half of them past Young Guns winners themselves. After nearly two months of careful deliberation, the jury selected 84 entrants for a finalist list — the first time in Young Guns history that the finalists were publicly revealed. The final round of judging took place in New York City, with both private voting and open debate from the judges leading to the 32 winners below.

YG15 Creative Choice Award

For the first time in Young Guns history, the One Club for Creativity was pleased to announce the Young Guns Creative Choice Award. We encouraged the global creative community at large to explore the works of this year's class of Young Guns winners, and to select which one winner they believe stood above all others, even in this rarified group of superstars.

The winner of the first ever Young Guns 15 Creative Choice Award is SJ.


Yann Kebbi


Based In: Paris, France
Originally from: Paris, France

Yann Kebbi studied at the L’école Estienne and L’école des Arts Décoratifs, with an exchange year in New York, studying at Parsons School of Design. He lives in Paris and is represented by Heart Artists' Agents.

At the core of Yann’s practice is drawing; he fills sketchbooks with drawings of his travels, or just in a café or out with friends. His subjects are mostly people, where he especially like to depict ‘types’. This observational drawing feeds into his work for commercial clients, and provides a humane response to subject matters.

Yann has been commissioned by European and American broadsheets such as The New York Times, The Guardian and Libération. He works regularly with The New Yorker and Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin. In addition to his work in the fields of editorial and design, Yann collaborates on small publishing projects for the independent publisher '3 Fois Par Jour' . He has also written and illustrated his own children’s book ‘Americanin un Chien à New York’ and a new graphic novel with Viken Berberian 'The structure is rotten, comrade'. He regularly exhibits his work, and sells original drawings, etchings and prints.
