Congrats to Leo for Canadian first!

In our May issue Listed Women report, we mentioned that Leo Burnett SVP/CCO Judy John oversaw the creative direction of the Leo B 'Big ideas come from Big Pencils' website, and that the Arc Worldwide Canada collaboration was picked up globally by Leo B. It subsequently pocketed one of only two highly coveted Black Pencils meted out at the D&AD Awards in London, making history as the first Black Pencil taken by Canada, and also the first top pencil awarded in the online category. It also nabbed two Yellow Pencils in the Interface and Navigation categories in Digital Crafts and Digital Media. As well, at press time, the innovative site had just picked up a Silver Cyber Lion at Cannes.
