An impressive win for our fresh BA (Hons) Graphic Design Graduates.

The best courses from across the UK exhibit at D&AD New Blood Festival in Shoreditch London. The stands were judged by top industry designers and art directors and our Graphic Design stand won the top award  – ‘Best Stand’.  This award recognises design presentation, communication and accessibility to student work. We showcased all our Graphic Design graduates using various media including showreel, portfolios and websites.

Feedback from one judge was conclusive: ‘Yours was the stand that stood out for me, no bling, just work confidently presented.  Intelligent and provocative work that delivers on problem solving and especially on content.
