Gwen Kaufmann, m+a - Friday, August 2, 2019    


A talented design graduate has been awarded a full-time job at GES as part of the New Designers competition. Held at the London Design Centre, New Designers celebrates the future of design, with 3,000 graduate designers presenting their work during the two-week-long exhibition. As sponsors of the Exhibit and Events Prize, GES has offered one lucky winner, Anika Chowdhury, a junior designer position in its studio in Sheffield which is the epicentre of the company's most exciting and ground-breaking creative and design work. The 21-year-old Coventry University graduate designed a 'Creative Coworking Economy' - a hybrid co-working hub which brings art and design graduates together from diverse industries and cultures to collaborate and network with professionals in the design industry. Mark Sykes, executive creative director at GES and head judge of the award, explained: "Amazing is the word I would use to describe the quality of design graduates at New Designers this year. Anika not only demonstrated exceptional design skills, comprehensive understanding of the design process but also a passion and enthusiasm that was contagious, a well-deserved winner. Our industry is constantly changing and evolving, New Designers graduates bring a breath of fresh air and energy to our growing business."
