A group of students from Rotherham College of Arts and Technology (RCAT) entered their creative designs into a competition organised by Howells Solicitors in Rotherham.
Over recent months, Howells has been working with and supporting their charity of the year; SAFE@LAST, a charity who works with and on behalf of young people at risk of running away in South Yorkshire.
To celebrate the support and fundraising, a group of students studying for Foundation Degree, Graphic Design were invited to work on a live brief and submit a poster design to promote the partnership between Howells and SAFE@LAST.
As well as providing the students with a chance to experience working on a live brief, the winner of the competition, Kelvin Davies, (20, from North Anston) also won a cash prize. His poster is now on display in all Howells Offices in South Yorkshire.
Mary Rose Macadam, Partner at Howells, commented “We are delighted to be able to support the students through initiatives such as this. We chose to base the competition on celebrating our work for SAFE@LAST, as we think our clients would be happy to see what their law firm is doing in the community.
“SAFE@LAST does incredible work with young people in South Yorkshire and we are proud to be able to support them. The competition also provides the students with a chance of working to a live brief – a great experience to add to their CV’s and allows us to support the local young talent at the same time.”
The competition is just one project that forms part of an on-going relationship between RCAT and Howells. As well as providing briefs and competitions, Howells also provides sponsorship to the college to help with the college’s own annual design competitions and residential trips.
