Student Competition

A warm welcome back to all colleagues and congratulations to Gwenaelle Leleu, second-year graphic design student on our Motion and Interactivity (MINT) pathway, who was a joint winner in our annual University greetings card competition.

Following 2012’s success, once again our Graphic Design students from the School of Arts & Media participated in our digital season’s greetings e-card competition. The competition is not only a great way of showcasing our talented students' work but also aims to promote a more sustainable way for the University to connect with colleagues, friends and family.

In a unique twist for the 2013’s competition, due to the calibre of the applicants the Vice Chancellor, Professor Martin Hall, decided to pick not one but two winners! The winning entries were designed by Daniel Castrogiovanni and Gwenaelle Leleu who are both BA (Hons) Graphic Design students in their second year of the Motion and Interactivity (MINT) pathway. Both were awarded vouchers for the retailer of their choice.

Gwenaelle’s design was a ‘Great Year’s Recipe’ which can be viewed above. Daniel’s was ‘The Robin’ which was used for the official University Season’s Greetings card.

The runner up of the competition was Samantha Royle who is on her 3rd year of Graphic Design on the Illustration pathway.

During their studies in Graphic Design, Salford students learn to think creatively, develop solutions, articulate ideas, entertain and inspire through a broad experience of graphic design, with the opportunity to specialise from the end of the first year in one of three pathways: communication, illustration or motion and interactivity.

The curriculum covers a broad range of specialist skills in areas such as creative thinking, branding, motion design, viral marketing and social media.

The graduate employment profile for the course is excellent, with live briefs, networking events, exhibitions and competitions providing many opportunities to engage both with the local vibrant creative community and on a national and global scale. Many alumni of the Graphic Design degree are now making a contribution to the creative industries locally, nationally and internationally.

We hope that you will use the link to forward New Year’s greetings to your colleagues and friends of the University.
