Apple has a few more D&AD awards to add to its pencil case.

Apple won two Yellow Pencil awards at the Global Awards ceremony held last night (May 24, 2006).

For the fourth year in a row the award was in recognition of the iPod. Both the iPod with video and iPod nano were recognised in the Product Design category.

Macworld sister site Digit reports that the 44th Annual D&AD Awards also saw 54 Yellow Pencils awarded and the rarely bestowed Black Pencil Awards were given to the redesign of The Guardian, and to Leo Burnett Canada for outstanding creative design.

The D&AD Global Awards, billed as the creative industry’s ‘Oscars’, are held annually, and seek to reward the very best in design across print, motion and online. The Awards are judged by some of the world’s leading creative practitioners, say organisers.
