Seven pupils from Bungay High School have won awards in this year’s national ‘Print-It’ Graphic Design competition.

Their work was singled out by industry specialists after submitting design prototypes for games design in Year 9 and music CD design in Year 10. They were praised for ingenuity, creativity and presentation.

The pupils are all following the graphics route in the new Design Technology GCSE and this project enabled them to merge theory on industrial processes with branding and corporate identity concepts.

Earth Island Publishing, organisers of the annual competition announced the winners at the beginning of December and pupils were presented with their prizes by their teacher Clinton Gillett.

The overall winner for concept and enterprise was Year 10 pupil Thea Brooks, with Year 10’s Katie Kerridge, Catherine Wardas, and Thomas Osborne picking up achievement awards along with Year 9 pupils Lani May, Rocco Trudgill-Barra and Isaac Zipfel.

Louise Gamage from Earth Island said: “Thank you so much for taking part in the initiative and saying how much you enjoyed the scheme, both from a design point of view and also learning new things about various printing processes, we were delighted with the quality of your submissions and wish you all the best of luck with your qualifications.”
