Graphics students commended in national competition

Students from USW’s BA (Hons) Graphic Communication degree have been commended in a national competition run by Young Creative Network.

Jerome Ley, Weronika Prasek and Jon William Capistrano were also commended as part of the competition for their work on the Art Fund Project. Jon, Jerome and Weronkia created an upbeat promotion piece of video graphics to encourage audience engagement.

Art Fund is a UK charity, founded in 1903, that exists to help museums and galleries buy and display works of art for the nation to enjoy. Most of our funding comes from sales of the National Art Pass, which offers free entry into over 240 charging museums, galleries and historic houses in the UK, as well as 50% off major exhibitions. Jon, Jerome and Weronkia created an upbeat promotion piece of video graphics to encourage audience engagement. Jon Capistrano commented:

“To be commended by YCN helped me pushed my self-confidence further and realised my full potential. Winning the YCN award was one of the biggest highlights in my three years of studies, and I’m glad that we were given the opportunity to work in groups. Working in a group made our project more dynamic and helped to diversify our ideas.

Studying Graphic Communication at USW overall was just an experience of great pleasure – especially from the immense support from the lecturers. I highly recommend anyone to enter design competitions more often, and my final advice is to don’t be afraid to put yourself out there – be competitive and take risks.”
