Graduate lands Google Doodle


Falmouth graduate Elin Manon collaborated with Google to create a 'doodle' for St David's Day. Her illustration was showcased on the world's most visited webpage for 24 hours and was inspired by Welsh mythology. As a freelance illustrator, Elin has been no stranger to working on projects with fantasy at the core and has completed works on Cornish Folklore and designed an illustration to accompany Welsh poet Casi Wyn's Cân o Fawl i'r Hydref. Read Elin's full interview and see just how far our graduates go.
