Kate Christman, Darren Wittington and Ashley Rudolph were thrilled to be short listed for Falmouth University’s 2014 Staff Excellence Awards. With 206 staff nominated and countless examples of excellence on show, the judging panel faced no small task before agreeing a short list of 3 entries for each award category.
International Collaboration of the Year
Ashley Rudolf – Ashley (Course Coordinator for BA(Hons) Graphic Design) and Stephan Bufler (Augsburg University) initiated the StereoTypologie project, a book which gained Erasmus funding, picked up a Red Dot Award, and created powerful learning opportunities including international placements and study visits for Falmouth Graphic Design students.
Best Employer Engagement Initiative
Kate Christman & Darren Whittington – The Graphic Design placement scheme is a key element of the high levels of graduate employability achieved by this course. The scheme, developed and coordinated by Kate and Darren, has facilitated a significant increase in placement opportunities for Stage 2 students with many of the leading design agencies in the UK.
