Digital Media success at D&AD, London

We have won a Best in Show for Elena’s work:






MOW [ma:u] is an app, which was designed to solve a problem of the transience of time.

It reminds you to forget for a moment about all your worries and just have a look around, feel your presence and the atmosphere you’re in.

Random notifications emphasise that every moment is special and unique. A continuous curve of time is like a landscape full of peaks, full of moments.

Interactive Installation: LIGHT FIELD

James Moore (Course Coordinator) and Alcwyn Parker (Lecturer) from BA Digital Media Design have been creating an installation for the Truro City of Lights Festival this week.  The project, designed and built by themselves is a reactive lighting installation, which will be featured on the ITV news tonight:

“A memorial wall of light is displayed on a shopping street in Truro, arranged as a field of 30 blooded light pools.  Motion sensors trigger a light when someone walks past it, so pathways, or ‘light trails’, following the movement patterns of pedestrians, are constantly being drawn.

Each individual illumination represents someone from the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry who was killed in WW1. The bulb stays lit for a number of seconds, relative to the age of the deceased, then fades away.  The system simultaneously “speaks” the name of the fallen soldier.”  Press Release

And here are some images, behind the scenes as the project is being built:

D&AD Global Awards for School

Two students from the School of Communication Design were awarded the coveted yellow pencil at the D&AD Awards last week. The D&AD Awards is recognised globally as the ultimate creative accolade.

Maddie Taylor from MA Creative Advertising impressed judges with her creative response to the brief entitled Mile High Dining by the Radio Advertising Bureau, while Nathan Smith from BA(Hons) Graphic Design won in the Packaging Design category with a brief to redesign the Purdey’s drinks range. Bradley Fletcher from MA Creative Advertising was also nominated and received highly commended on the night.

“We are incredibly proud of our students’ success,” comments Jon Unwin, Director of the School of Communication Design. “It was a real thrill to see them receive their awards on a night that witnessed students collect awards from universities across the world. To end the evening with two yellow pencils and a highly commended is testament to the quality of teaching at Falmouth, and the commitment and talent of our students.”

The ceremony was the final event at the end of the three-day D&AD New Blood exhibition in London. Showcasing the work of students from top universities across the globe, each year 25 Best of New Blood awards are selected by leading professionals, from the thousands of individual student projects presented.

Each of the subject areas within Falmouth’s School of Communication Design (Graphic Design, Digital Media and Creative Advertising) received a Best of New Blood award for an individual student project. The BA(Hons) Illustration course added to Falmouth’s success by winning a further Best of New blood title, combining to make four awards out of 25 delivered.

“The D&AD Best of New Blood awards are the cherries on the cake – for Falmouth University to win four is a wonderful achievement. Most importantly the New Blood event is ultimately a spring-board into industry for our students. Once again their work attracted enormous interest from visiting professionals and has translated into a large number of job opportunities for our students,” adds Jon.

As a footnote to Falmouth’s D&AD New Blood 2014 story, all the creative promotional material and showcasing of the event was produced by the extraordinary talent that is Craig Oldham – one of Falmouth’s Graphic Design graduates.
