Forthquarter Design Winner

17 July 2011

l/r - Chris Hughes, Graphic Design Tutor, Fiona McKenzie, Regeneration Manager for National Grid, Michael Kerr, David Hiddleston, Curriculum Manager.

Well done to HND Year 1 student Michael Kerr, whose Graded Unit project, a live brief for National Grid to produce signage for the Forthquarter development in Granton, was selected as the winning submission.

Michael produced a fully integrated campaign which included logo development, direct mail, signage points, ambient advertising and digital designs for web and mobile.

Michael received £500 in prize money from National Grid's Regeneration Manager, Fiona McKenzie, and will see his ideas become reality when his designs are installed at the three main gates to The Forthquarter Park - West Granton Road, Waterfront Broadway and West Shore Road.

Here's a great example of the work - Michael's logo development visuals -
