Bronze. Yay!

I’m very excited to have won bronze in the illustration and animation category of the Creative Conscience Awards 2014. I received my certificate last night at a bit of an awards do at the Design Council HQ in London.

It’s funny to think that only a couple of months ago I was struggling to pin down a subject area and had never made an animation before. My animation skills certainly aren’t that brilliant, but I had a strong message and made some good, humorous and engaging (yet basic) choices on how to communicate it.

It was lovely to share the celebrations with my fellow viscomrades: Jo and Bhakti (who won bronze in film and photography), Lucy (who got a special mention in fashion and textiles), and Barhsa (who got a special mention in illustration and animation). Our head of course, Graham, and head of year, Marianne, also got to join us and be all proud parenty about it.

I met some brilliant winners there too, namely fellow bronzer in animation Michael Boulton, and photographer and charity worker Jessica Bishopp and her brilliant See What I See project with young people Gambia.

I talked to a few special guests and mentors too, and although great to hear about their area of work and thoughts on a creative conscience, there is nothing to report on other than a nice bunch of people.
