ISTD awards & special congratulations to Lincoln...

On Friday evening I was invited to the ISTD Student awards evening which was hosted at The Partners in London EC1 (thanks to Creative Director, Jack Renwick). It was an excellent evening and it was good to see so many people that I've worked with over the years (The ISTD is a fantastic organisation and I'm proud to have been working in association with them since the mid nineties). http://www.istd.org.uk/

Alan Kitching presented the certificates and it was a great evening.

It was particularly eventful for the Lincoln School of Art & Design (University of Lincoln) as not only did 8 of their students walk away with certificates but the Vincent Steer award (which is the highest student accolade) was presented to Chris Mahoney for his project "MP3".

...and only the evening before, at the D&AD Student awards, the team which had designed and organised "The Design Auction" were awarded a yellow pencil. http://www.designauction.co.uk/. The team are Toby Burkill, Danny Elliot, Steve Fenn and Lauren Traynor - congratulations to you all.
I have been working with some of the tutors at Lincoln for a few years now and I have done a few talks to their courses. These award achievements really are a reflection of the dedication and quality of the tutors at this particular college, in particular, Barrie Tullett, Philippa Wood and John Dowling (part time). They really are an example of a department that goes that extra mile - and the results (and quality of their students) are there for all to see...
