Designs on future

Thursday 16 April 2015

A Bedford College student has won a coveted internship with an international graphics company.

Following a competition to create external designs for a caravan which was set by Creative Graphics International (CGI), winner Ellie Terrell will be joining the company over the summer. She was also presented with a £700 Wacom Cintiq Drawing Tablet. Runner-up Tyler Jaggs won a Wacmon Intuous Tablet.

CGI Eamonn Nicholson-Clinch and Doug Tait made the presentations at the Bedford College South Bank Arts Centre.

Advanced Practitioner Jeffrey Tribe said: “Five students from our HND Graphic Design took park in the challenge called Speed & Light. It is so valuable for students to have the opportunity to work with professionals from the industry in this way and be spurred on by such generous incentives.”

“We are now looking forward to seeing how Ellie benefits from the internship activity.”

CGI is a global branding solutions company providing design, production and installation graphic services to the automotive, aerospace and leisure industries. CGI has almost 40 years’ experience and a client portfolio of global blue-chip motor manufacturers, airlines and engineering conglomerates in over 25 different countries worldwide.

“The aim of this skills competition facilitated by ACER (Association of Colleges in the Eastern Region) was to strengthen ties with local colleges and to identify up and coming designers,” Doug Tait, Design Manager CGI of Singer Way, Woburn Road Industrial Estate, Kempston.
