Graphic Design students work with police to design bike safety campaign

Posted on

We all know that we should be cycling more to reduce congestion and become healthier – but two things that put people off are bike thefts and traffic accidents.

Andy Goodwin, Head of Progression, has been working on a joint project with the Cambridgeshire Police on the SAFE (Safety and Further Education) campaign. Graphic Design students were commissioned to design posters or make videos highlighting one of the two areas (crime or safety).

Once the students had completed their designs, a panel of senior police officers, teachers and Criminology Level 3 Applied Diploma students was appointed to pick the winners. Andy comments:

“The police were highly impressed with the level of ingenuity displayed, and it was interesting to see the different perspectives . All the students who took part will be able to add their work to their portfolios, and quote the panel as recognising their professionalism and ability to meet the needs of clients. The overall winners were:

Poster– Lia Hooks
Film–Emily Shields

In addition, special recognition was given to work by:
Posters – Tom French, Vicky Rhodes, Ralph Gasgonia
Film – Jack Mannion

And finally, the poster by Joe Snaith was chosen as the personal favourite of the Detective Chief Inspector of Cambridge!

Lia, Emily and their families were invited to attend a special award ceremony at Police Headquarters in Hinchingbrooke.
