ADC recently reinvented the ADC YG program to be an invitation competition where nominees are handpicked by a cultural influencer committee made up of 40 leading thinkers, makers and visionaries. ADC president/Sid Lee cofounder Philippe Meunier explains that “we’re curating talent and building an invigorating club for the creative community.”
