Yet more major awards for University College Falmouth's
3rd-year BA(Hons) Graphic Design students from University
College Falmouth, Russell Hancock and Rose Hall, have added
yet more major awards to the spectacular tally of 19 already
won by students from the course this year.
Russell Hancock won the Delabole Slate Best Student Film
at the recent Cornwall Film Festival and Rose Hall has won
Best in Show at the Future Talent Awards, fending off stiff
competition from Leeds and Trent Polytechnic students who
won silver and bronze.
Russell's winning submission for the Cornwall Film
Festival, which he wrote, produced and directed, was a character
comedy entitled Sunday Bench. The film uses time-jumping to
explore alternative endings for its three protagonists whose
stories unfold around an unwitting park bench. Following on
from the success of BA(Hons) Film Studies student, Dan Johnson,
with Kung Fu Stu in 2004, this is the second time that a student
from University College Falmouth has won this prestigious
Rose answered the Make Milk Cool brief set as part of FutureBrand's
FutureTalent Awards and won not only the Best in Show award,
which was judged by such luminaries of the creative industries
as Patrick Smith and Shane Greeves of FutureBrand, Bill Sherman
of Nokia and Sir Peter Blake, but also the Best in Category
Award and the Most Environmentally Aware Design Award.
Leading brand strategists, FutureBrand, launched the FutureTalent
Awards in order to strengthen their links with colleges across
the UK and seek out the best student creative talent.
Rose's clever redesign of the packaging, identity
and brand mark for milk won her £1,500 in cash, a year-long
work placement at distinguished agencies in Paris, London,
Milan and Hamburg, 1 green aluminium can award, 1 silver aluminium
can award, 3 perspex plaques, 1 professional portfolio, a
£50 voucher for the London Graphics Centre and 1 year's
subscription to Design Week.
"I warmly congratulate Russell and Rose on their
achievements," said senior lecturer, Mark Woodhams.
"The FutureTalent Award is probably the most high
profile win we have had for many years. It is incredibly pleasing
that Russell and Rose have collected yet another clutch of
major awards and a real testament to the hard work of staff
and students in an extremely competitive arena."
