Graphic Design students enjoy another vintage year of award wins and nominations

From multiple winners at the international Creative Conscience Awards to top prizes at the Royal Society of the Arts awards, this year’s crop have certainly made their mark.

And talking after more acclaim at the D&AD New Blood Festival in London, Senior Lecturer, Marion Morrison, said it had been another “amazing week” in a remarkable 12 months for AUB.

She said: “It has been a vintage year with more AUB Graphic Design students than ever winning awards and our stand at D&AD was visited by a high number of creative industry designers.

“Our design graduates performed brilliantly on the stand securing internships, interviews and one designer was offered, and accepted, a job on the spot with an international digital agency.

“We got the distinct impression that the creative industries are very buoyant and AUB Graphic Design is high on their recruitment list.

“It was also very rewarding to touch base with a large number of AUB Graphic Design alumni – to hear their stories and watch them give invaluable advice to those fledgling designers making the transition into employment this year.”

Here is a list of all of the BA (Hons) Graphic Design student successes for the last academic year.
