Week #14 – The Private View

This week – Show Thirteen is here! Just the finishing touches – adding the business cards, applying the way finding, sorting out the portfolios, adding the curated elements, a spot of hoovering, adding the portfolio cover photos, previewing the curated show reels, adding the group photos, a bit more hoovering, sorting out the window display and finally enjoying the private view! Lots of guests, speeches, toasts and awards.


In it to win it

Last week we received some great news – Show Thirteen students had achieved success in the YCN and D&AD student awards and the ADAA (Adobe Design Achievement Awards).

Stuart O’Flynn has been selected as a YCN winner for his Forestry Commission campaign:

and Chris Algar has received a D&AD student awards nomination for his work on the V&A hoarding brief:

Great news guys – congratulations!

Also well done to Chris Algar (again), Amber Hadley, Sunjay Morar, Talveer Uppal, Ash Watkins and Sam Weston on reaching the semi-finals of the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

It’s brilliant to see Show Thirteen students getting the recognition they deserve! We’ve all got our fingers crossed for Chris to win a yellow pencil 🙂

ISTD Success

It’s been 4 weeks of intense waiting, but on Tuesday we received the brilliant news that 4 of our Show Thirteen students have been awarded ISTD membership for their typographic excellence!

Congratulations to…

Chris Algar (MISTD)

Ross Golding (MISTD)

Sunjay Morar (MISTD)

Lloyd Shand (MISTD)

Well done boys! That brings our Show Thirteen ISTD winners total to 7, alongside Amber Hadley (MISTD), Jack Slater (MISTD) and Sam Weston (MISTD) who achieved membership last year as second years.

Week #2

In the run up to Show Thirteen, we’re filming the day-to-day events of what it’s like to be a student on our course. This week we pick the last brief (Russian roulette) of our degree from envelopes with Barrie, we have our penultimate crits
(for the Metamorphosis brief) with Philippa, Auction 13 send out their postcards and we travel to Manchester for the Roses Student Awards:

Roses Student Awards 2013

Last night the Roses Student Awards 2013 were held at Islington Mill in Salford. A few weeks back, all of the 3rd years had been working on the Pen Pals brief, producing some great results so we had our fingers crossed.

Dave, Emma and Tasha travelled to Salford to represent Lincoln and were really excited to find 2 of 4 shortlisted entries belonged to Lincoln students!

Entries by Dave Morris and a collaboration from Tom Matthews and Sunjay Morar were displayed on the boards with crowds gathering to get a closer look.

Whilst the 3 students were busy being excited, a piece of paper was posted to Dave’s board to confirm him as the brief winner!

Karl Sanderson, Creative director of Vivid, was on hand to explain a bit about the brief and present Dave with his award:

Congratulations Dave! As well as the award, he’s won an internship with Vivid! Speaking to Karl afterwards, he said that the entries from Lincoln had well written strategies with strong copy writing and had hit the nail on the head in terms of what they were looking for. So well done to everyone that entered – some great pieces for your portfolios!

Fingers crossed now for those who submitted to YCN yesterday and also for the D&AD deadline next week!
