Award Nomination!

24 April 2012

D&AD announced their Student Awards Nominations and Best-of-Year (formerly the InBook) this week, and our HND Year 2 student Steven Brown has received a Nomination.

Steven worked on the installation design brief for Coutts, and can now look forward to a trip to the awards ceremony in London on June 26th, and the chance of winning a coveted Yellow Pencil.

This is a fantastic achievement - less than 7% of submissions win a nomination or a best-of - and this year there are winning entries from as far afield as Singapore, Australia, USA, various parts of Europe, and of course many of the best Art Schools and Universities in the UK.

This is also the third year in a row that we have picked up an award at D&AD.

A Busy Easter

5 April 2012

Whilst the design team tutors are putting their feet up during Easter, our HND students are busy planning out their final projects, which will begin later in April.

Some of our Year 2 students are also back out on placement - Jordan Porteous is at Project, Terry Smith has a full month at Tayburn, Marketing Awards shortlister Steven Brown is at industry giants RAPP, and Michael Kerr has journeyed south for a second stint with Newcastle's finest, me&alan.
