Friday 6 May 2016

Students from the School of Communication Design have won 16 D&AD pencils at this year's awards - the most from any single university in the world!

Eight of the pencil winning student entries are from the BA(Hons) Graphic Design course and eight from the MA Creative Advertising course.

Jon Unwin, Director of the School of Communication Design, said: "We are extremely proud of our students continued success in national and international award schemes. It not only reflects their commitment, creativity and ability to challenge conventional thinking but also endorses our approach to teaching, that places creative problem solving and strategic thinking at the heart of the curriculum."

The winning students will be invited to a gala ceremony in London this July where they will discover whether their entry will win further accolade.

Drum roll for the following students... Tom Austin, Matthew Caldwell, Matthew Churchill, Jon Coates, Sajana Dora, Dimitrios Dimitriou, Ryan Ho, Emma Jeffery, Louis Knight, Gabrielle Prawl, Jamie Quantrill, Alycea Marx-Blackwell, Jessica Nineham, Becki Sewell, Jonathan Tubb and Josh Welton.

The D&AD (Design and Art Direction) award scheme attracts student entries from all over the world. The briefs are written and judged by leading professionals, and are designed to challenge the students creativity, craft and communication skills.
