Graduate shortlisted in top design competiton


A former star student made the shortlist of a prestigious national design competition – reaching the top 80 of 1535 entrants!

Gareth Truesale, who was named HND Student of the Year at the 2018 end of year Art and Design showcase, has excelled in the Young and Powerful National Poster Competition and Exhibition, led by the Graphic Design Festival Scotland.

The competition and exhibition celebrates and encourages young designers to engage with design, use creative skills to tackle real-life problems, and express their ideas and opinions on that matter.

Gareth’s design was chosen to be exhibited by a panel of young people, designers and decision-makers from across Scotland and was unveiled at a grand opening ceremony at The Lighthouse in Glasgow on Monday 22nd October.

His lecturers and mentors Kelly Cunningham and Sandra Ord were in attendance to cheer him on at the event, which is free and still open to the public.
