A SCARBOROUGH student has received a £50 prize after his logo design was chosen to represent a new arts project.

Philip Grundon, a second year student on the Applied Digital Media (Design) course at Yorkshire Coast College, created the design for Scarborough Studios.

The group of artists is overseeing the conversion of the old parcels office at Scarborough train station into fine art studios.

Scarborough Studios approached the college’s Digital Media Design department to invite students to come up with logo ideas for the project. Philip’s work was selected from some 20 design ideas submitted.

Sally Gatie, of Scarborough Studios Group, said: “It was difficult to choose one design from the extremely high quality logo ideas submitted, but the committee all felt that Philip had come up with something special.

“The committee were particularly taken with his poster ideas, which are now being used in the information display which will be sent to art departments of colleges and universities in the wider area.”

The cheque was presented to Philip at the Town Hall where plans and studio details have been on display.

He said: “This is a great opportunity to be involved in promoting the arts in Scarborough. I put a lot of work into it and the clients seem really pleased with my ideas.”
