Young Guns 15

Young Guns 15

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 resulted in 32 new Young Guns, who were awarded a colorful translucent Cube designed by YG9 winner Roanne Adams and RoAndCo.

The Young Guns 15 ceremony and party took place on November 16, 2017.

Graphic Designer

Based In: New York, NY

Ben Crick is a designer.

He believes in provocative and insightful design born of strong ideas, executed with craft and finesse. His experience at both small and large studios has helped crystallize his specific vision for graphic design — to bring the creative quality usually reserved for small practices to projects and clients of international scale and complexity.

With a portfolio that spans a wide range, from small passion projects to branding and identity systems for global companies like Spotify and Coca-Cola, his work has been recognized by D&AD, Graphis, AIGA, AGDA, The Type Directors Club, and Creative Arts, among others. Designweek named his work with Collins for Spotify as some of the most globally defining to date.

Originally from Australia, Ben relocated to New York 5 years ago — specifically to an apartment in Chinatown where he lives across from the very popular Wonton Garden. Don’t order the lo mein.
