Jonathan Cruz and Saymon Medeiros, a team of creative directors at and us agency in Dubai, are among the talented young creatives from 18 countries who have been named finalists in The One Club for Creativity’s prestigious Young Guns 21 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

Young Guns is the industry’s only global, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based awards competition that identifies and celebrates today’s vanguard of young creatives. This year’s entries were judged by a diverse jury of 100 top creatives — many of whom are past YG winners — from 47 countries.

This year’s winners will be announced on November 1, 2023, and celebrated at a special in-person party hosted by designer, author, educator, and “Design Matters” podcaster Debbie Millman on November 15, 2023 at Sony Hall in New York.

All Young Guns winners receive a unique version of the iconic Young Guns Cube, designed exclusively for this year’s incoming class, and have their permanent profile page added to the Young Guns website. Winners also get a complimentary one-year One Club for Creativity membership, permanent membership in the Young Guns network, a chance to be featured in Young Guns events and an assortment of career-boosting opportunities from Young Guns sponsors.

Program branding and design of the YG Cube award itself is reimagined each year by a past Young Gun winner. This year’s YG21 branding was created by Zuzanna Rogatty (YG18), senior designer at COLLINS New York.
