The students won wooden pencils for their response to four separate design briefs.

The winners included first year Graphics students Ethan Brown and Ben Chamberlain for their “not just open, but equal” campaign concept celebrating the positive culture of London’s Oxford Street for outdoor advertising firm JCDecaux.

Rok Hudobivnik, who graduated in Graphic Communication this year, won for a studio calendar concept for paper, packaging and sign firm Antalis (pictured).

Holly Taylor, who graduated in Graphic Design, won a wooden pencil for her response to a brief from Dropbox: a campaign to encourage women to take a smear test.

And a team of three Graphic Design graduates – Maddy Russell, Lily Arundell, and Amy Joslyn – won for their design for a Hellman’s campaign: Buy One Get or Gift One Free.
