After an entire year of planning, show fifteen was finally declared open. The private view was a night to remember with awards, placements and tears! Barrie’s speech about an art college being a ‘home’, and the students’ being part of our ‘family’ was an emotional start to the proceedings. John Dowling and Matt Smith were honoured with Fellowships to our very own LSDT (Lincoln Société de Design Typographique), along with four new student members; there was a Best Dissertation Award and of course Student of the Year. John came up trumps with a series of ‘foot in the door’ awards – student placements at a range of amazing studios in London and Manchester.
The students then turned the tables and gave out staff awards including ‘Mum of 42’ ‘Mr Weird and Wonderful’ and the ‘Best Newcomer’. The party continued at The Collection in Lincoln – well done and congratulations to everyone for making it a great night.
