Grand prize for grand design

 

A University of Lincoln graduate has won £1000 for designing a flyer for Wilkinson stores to attract students to shop there.

 

The competition was to design a corporate flyer targeted at the student market for use during a summer sales push. Roger Frost, Media Production graduate, designed the flyer with a comic book theme which will now be developed by Wilkinson’s in-house design team.

 

Roger graduated yesterday and was awarded the prize at the Media, Humanities and Technology graduation ceremony.

 

“I am really pleased to have won the competition. It was a great opportunity and I think it will definitely help me get into the industry now I have graduated. The experience from this will give me a good start,” said Roger.

 

The project was administered, on behalf of Wilkinson, by Sands Global Media of Gainsborough and Minerva Productions, the University’s in-house media production unit.
