D&AD New Blood 2014 - Best in Show


Every year we pay for our students to exhibit their work both in Newcastle and at D&AD New Blood in London. D&AD (Design & Art Direction) is one of the leading Design Associations in the UK and is renown worldwide, and they host a graduate show each year which some of the best design programmes exhibit their work at. It’s a great place to showcase the students’ work to industry and it has a number of prizes for students taking part.


We won two ‘best in show’ awards for Caroline Innes & Simon Walsh’s ‘Reso’ app and another for Tim Thomas’s ‘Colour Interface’.

‘Reso’ is an App that allows users to solve almost any difficult decision users might have to make throughout their day. It was design in response to a live brief set by digital agency R/GA called ‘Life After Snapchat’ (More details on the project can be found here).
