Ex-Collyer’s student Nick Smith has been recognised at the Smint Design Exhibition, which took place at the Deck, a rooftop venue at the top of the National Theatre in London last weekend.

Nick’s design placed him in the top 25 of short-listed entrants in Smint’s national ‘Design our Cover’ competition.

Each of the finalists saw their designs put on show to industry professionals, journalists, judges and retail buyers.

Nick was delighted to be awarded with an iPad Mini, £250 plus a printed mock-up of the design for his portfolio.

Kate Sharp, Head of Faculty for Arts and Communication at Collyer’s, was very proud of Nick’s fantastic achievement: “I attended the award event at the National Theatre’s ‘Deck‘ on Saturday where all 25 finalists’ work was exhibited. For Nick to be placed in the final 25 was a commendable achievement and a great advert for our excellent arts provision here at Collyer’s”.

Nick left Collyer’s in 2013, having successfully studied Product Design, Art and Art Graphics. He is currently in his second year at university, studying for a BA (Honours) at the highly regarded Arts University, Bournemouth.
