Ben Cridland

Ben works as a Graphic Designer for Dyson at their global headquarters in Malmesbury. In 2010 he was selected from over 2,000 students to receive one of only 27 prestigious Design & Art Direction (D&AD) Best New Blood awards. Ben was also an Emerge finalist in 2010, chosen by Domenic Lippa of Pentagram to design a poster to be shown on the London Underground and at an exhibition of emerging talents.

"Choosing to study at Falmouth was one of the best decisions I've made. When trying to decide which Graphic Design course to do, people always recommended Falmouth - and they were right. The course was filled with variety and opportunities and the tutors' doors were always open. They encouraged us to be in every day and created a real-world design studio atmosphere. Often it was the little conversations we had in the corridor or over a coffee that triggered ideas and accelerated my imagination. To be among peers and friends, to be able to bounce ideas and share opinions is something I really benefitted from."
