On the 2nd September I travelled to London to collect a commendation for the YCN Awards 2014/15, at the Barbican Centre. Lots of surprises turned up. I won the overall award for the Taylors of Harrogate brief! You can see my work here.
This is a fantastic achievement and saw many guest speakers such as none other than Micheal Wolff from Wolff Ollins!
I met some new people and had a fantastic time.
I am now preparing to go back to finish my degree and my final year of university. I really don’t want this journey to end!
Earlier this year I picked a design brief out of many, for the YCN Design Competition. I decided to choose a product innovation brief, to engage a younger audience into Taylors of Harrogate coffee. I like coffee and I thought this would challenge me the most. Unfortunately I was right! It challenged me an awful lot. I took me a while to come up with a solid idea and theme, but I finally got there and submitted these three circus themed coffees to the competition. I am very proud of these designs because I do like the quirks of the circus and the excitement it can bring to an audience.
Little did I know that I would actually win a commendation for my work in this competition. Three of my peers in the BA Hons Graphic Design Course, in Portsmouth have also won an award for their work too! I am so overwhelmed and literally sky high right now! I pick up the award in September!
