D&AD Award Success

Friday 15 July 2016
D&AD New Blood Yellow Pencil Awards.

In 2018 advertising students from Falmouth won 7 highly coveted D&AD (Design and Art Direction) pencils - an extraordinary result considering that they were in competition with students from around the world.

The D&AD award scheme attracts thousands of entries and students can work individually or in teams. The briefs are written and judged by leading professionals, and are designed to challenge the students’ creativity, craft and communication skills.


See what our award winning students did:
Charles Young and Jennifer Carter, for their Adidas work
Serena Moseley and Bethan Harris Brown, for their Nationwide + Shelter work
Lauren Ashton & Melissa Sharpe, for their Digital McKinsey work
Surabhi Mokashi, Meabh McElduff, Phoebe Tancock & Joseph Foale-Groves, for their Giffgaff work
Amy Tavener & Barney Cook, for their Nationwide + Shelter work
Madelline Charles & Jobe Secka, for their Burger King work
Deborah Ferro, for their Nationwide + Shelter work

D&AD New Blood judges also named our students Aaron Long and Gabby Cork as ‘faces to watch’ which is a tremendous honour.

We are very proud of them and all of our students, past and present.

Paul Springer, Director of the School of Communication Design at Falmouth, said:

“We are very pleased to share in the success of our students who, every year, through hard work and commitment, not only win awards but go on to win work placements and jobs, often before they even graduate. We consider the learning environment that we have created here at Falmouth as important as the way we teach, which is based on industry practice. Our many tutors from industry reflects this approach and it works.”
