University students celebrated at global awards


Falmouth University Graphic Design, Advertising and Illustration undergraduates and postgraduates are celebrating success at the annual Design and Advertising Awards (D&AD) New Blood Awards 2020 with 16 students named as ones to watch on the global stage.    


Awards in the competition are graded by type of pencil from a wood pencil to a black pencil. Each winner proudly receives a Pencil shaped coloured trophy. This year, Falmouth students were also awarded three Yellow Pencils, three Graphite Pencils and two Wood pencils. 


Dr Cui Su, head of advertising, said: “Pandemic? What pandemic? In the toughest of times, to have so many winners of D&AD New Blood Ones to Watch is testament to the tenacity and energy of our advertising students. The world needs good ideas now more than ever. As tutors we feel so proud and privileged to have been part of their journey – massive congratulations to all!”
