ISTD Student Awards 2017

Last Friday, I was invited to  the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) Student awards ceremony, hosted by Pentagram at their wonderful studio in Notting Hill with Pentagram partner, Angus Hyland, presenting the certificates to the successful students and tutors.

It was a beautiful summer evening, and as with all ISTD events it was a very warm and friendly occasion with beer, wine and nibbles all laid on.
This presentation evening is for the main Student Assessment scheme held in the UK and Ireland. Students from Universities and Institutions around the UK and Ireland answered a number of briefs written by the ISTD's Education team. This is an international education scheme and the assessments for other regions of the globe are on-going.
Below is ISTD education officer John Paul Dowling talking through the judging process.  
Pentagram partner, Angus Hyland, presented all the certificates and also an excellent goody bag. There were students from universities from all over the country and further afield, with one student from Moscow. The Vincent Steer award, which is the highest accolade, was awarded to Conor Foran a student from NCAD.
Contents of the goody bags was excellent, with items generously supplied by Cass Art and a copy of Logo published and donated by Laurence King.
My thanks to the ISTD board for inviting me and as I have said many times on this blog before, it's very important to support organisations such as the ISTD and events such as this. A big thank you to all those members of the ISTD who freely give their time for the benefit of others, in particular, Freda Sack, who has been such an important figure in the society for so many years.
