There was significant success for Falmouth’s students at the 2022 D&AD New Blood Awards, with six students awarded pencils for their projects and several others having their work selected for the New Blood Portfolio Picks.
The New Blood Awards are open to students, recent graduates and emerging creatives worldwide. Entrants are set briefs from companies such as the BBC, Disney, Netflix and Penguin, with their final projects judged by experts from the creative industry.
This year there was a focus on tackling commercial and social challenges across a range of disciplines, including UX/UI, animation, advertising, typography and PR.
Congratulations to Olivia Howarth, Disha Chatterjee, Katharina Holland, Keilan Grant, Ben Parmenter and Connor Leggett, who all took home pencils for their work.
