D&AD success for WSA students

Published: 3 May 2009

The Graphic Arts Programme became a member of D&AD (Design & Art Direction) this year to coincide with our first third year cohort to utilise their various professional support and the opportunity to represent the programme at their New Blood show in London this June.

D&AD is the most recognised global design awards and has an awards competition that recognises the best in professional and student design related work. The competition culminates in an awards ceremony and exhibition in London and the production of two annual publications celebrating the best work chosen by an awards panel made up of key figures in the creative industries.

This year, the student awards competition was completed by over fifteen thousand students. Three thousand of the best were selected for entry in the competition. Eleven Graphic Arts students were entered, two of whom have been selected ‘in book’. Both MA Communication Design entered were also selected to be ‘in book’. This is a remarkably high level of success!

We would like to recognise the successful students who are:

Jennifer Babey Level 2 Graphic Arts/Advertising Design Pathway Category Music Video/ Create a music video for Monkey’s track Pigsy in space. Sponsored by XL Recordings.

Sophy Monk Level 3 Graphic Arts/Photography & Digital Media Pathway Category Craft - Photography/ Tell a story through a photo-essay that changes people's perceptions of Wealth and poverty. Sponsored by PhotoVoice

Gergana Plummer MA Communication Design Category Graphic Design - Brand Identity/ Create the brand for a radically new customer reward scheme. Sponsored by The Brand Union

Xing Chen MA Communication Design Category Advertising – Poster/Outdoor/ Create an outdoor poster campaign that makes the PJ’s brand appealing, accessible and trendy. Sponsored by PJ Smoothies.

Winchester School of Art is very proud of their achievement and would also like to congratulate all the students selected for entry for the high standard of their work, but especially to those four selected ‘in book’ for their outstanding work. The School would also like to thank the team of staff who have supported them producing and entering their work.
