Antenna tenant, Sam Bowles of STENCIL wins ‘Art Director of the Year – Independent’

We’re delighted for our tenant Sam Bowles, Creative Director at STENCIL Creative Agency and Pitch Magazine after being awarded ‘Art Director of the Year – Independent’ by The British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME). Sam had some tough competition, including Simon Campbell of Rugby Journal, David Dowding of Slimming World, Mark Hickling of Britannica’s What on Earth! Magazine, just to name a few.

Pitch is a magazine produced for print and digital publication, brimming with stories of modern sport from football to cricket, rugby to golf, MMA, boxing, athletics, F1 and more. Conceived, grown, and birthed in Nottingham, lots of local talent collaborated to bring the magazine to life in 2022, including students and alumni from Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.
