Graphic Design student Harry Lee has been working with design studio Nixon Design to support Cornwall Chamber of Commerce's fresh new look.

Harry, who was one of five students to be offered a paid two week internship at Nixon, led on the creation of a new marque which has been implemented across all of the Chamber's communication channels.

Harry said: "Working alongside the team at Nixon was an invaluable experience; discovering their design process in a live studio environment was eye-opening, and I appreciate their faith to give me my own brief. I'm now focussing on my final third year projects before figuring out where in the world I want to go next."

Managing Director of Nixon Design, Martin Nixon, said: "We believe it's very important that students are rewarded both in financial terms for their work, but also by working on compelling live projects.

"We're delighted that we've been able to facilitate this rebranding project on behalf of the Chamber. Harry is a very talented designer and a credit to his course- he's clearly destined for a very successful future career."

The new brand was officially launched at the Chamber's recent BIG Breakfast at the Penventon Park Hotel.

Kim Conchie, Chief Executive of the Chamber, added: "Harry was extremely professional and is a credit to Falmouth University – we wouldn't hesitate to work with another student on a different project in the future."
