[singlepic id=693 w=320 h=240 float=left]Third year Graphic Design student, Ryan Delaney, has been nominated for the International CCS Design Award which is run by a company that is dedicated to showcasing and awarding outstanding website designs.

Ryan created this website for a third year Media Arts paper, Advanced Intenet Design, and he now relies on votes from the public to increase his chances of winning.

After the public have voted, a panel of 4-8 judges, made up of qualified and professional designers that have at least 5 years experience in their specialised fields; graphic design, wedsite design and website development, assess the submissions.

The judges choice of stand-out submissions then go onto the nominees page, where Ryan’s website is sitting, waiting for the final decision.

All winning nominations will be automatically accepted for the newly established Designer of the Year award also.

Designs from third-year students selected from 4168 entries

This year’s third-year graphic design students all submitted poster designs to the Good 50×70 initiative. This project was part of a two-part brief given to graphic design students as part of publication class. The project in its entirety is to create a folded-poster publication; a poster that serves a dual purpose to inform as well as provide content when it is folded down. 

We are pleased to announce that out of 4168 poster entries from design and illustration professionals and students, two poster designs from Media Arts students were selected by the Good 50×70 judges. Posters from Sian Richardson and Angela Parker will be exhibited at La Triennale gallery in Milan from June the 19th to July the 12th and included in the catalogue containing all the posters selected by the jury this year.
