Falmouth’s Illustration students had plenty to shout about. With six students listed as ‘ones to watch’ in the Festival Portfolio Picks: Amy Sutton, Daniel Converio, Ellie Lonsdale, Ewan White, Lily Stock and Eleanor Bannister were all highlighted as designers with bright futures ahead of them.
Graham Black and Natalie Hayes, lecturers in BA (Hons) Illustration, reflected on a “phenomenal” effort from their students.
“The phenomenal success of Falmouth Illustration BA (Hons) students scooping six of D&AD’s New Blood Festival Portfolio Picks is testament to the amazing talent and resilience of our students. It demonstrates how our graduates leave Falmouth ‘industry ready’, culturally aware and poised to embark upon their creative careers. We are not surprised that so many have been acknowledged in such a prestigious competition and we are immensely proud of them all.”
