HAT-TRICK OF AWARDS FOR EXHIBITION DESIGNERS

 

Three exhibition designers who trained at the Hull School of Architecture were on the winning side at an industry awards ceremony last week.

 

Jason Hender (31), Mark Feasey (27) and Dan Savage (25) all graduated in Museum and Exhibition Design at the University of Lincoln and were among the winners at the Museums & Heritage Show in London.

 

Jason Hender worked on some of the exhibits in The Deep in Hull and was on the project team for John Csáky Associates which won the award for the best permanent exhibition.

 

Mark Feasey worked on the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum in Bristol which won the award for the best project on a limited budget for his employers Richard Fowler Associates.

 

The Imperial War Museum North in Salford won the award for best use of technology for Real Studios, whose project team included Dan Savage.

 

The first ever Museums & Heritage Show Awards for Excellence were presented by  the broadcaster and journalist Janet Street-Porter at the Café Royal in London’s Piccadilly on 12th February.

 

Broadcaster Loyd Grossman won the award for overall contribution by an individual.

 

“These awards are proof positive of the qualities and abilities of our graduates, the vast majority of whom take up prestigious posts in the industry after they leave the Hull School of Architecture,” said a spokesman for the University of Lincoln.

 

“We would like to congratulate all three of our former students and we hope that they are the first of many more successful designers in the future.”
