Illustration students' work to travel the world

BA (Hons) Illustration students produced designs for the International Office to offer as gifts 'made in Portsmouth' to our international partners. Students had to consider the practical necessities of travel and the designs had to be light and packaged appropriately. All the designs reflect the city, the university and our Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries.The final selection made by our marketing team in the International Office included gift cards, a long folded tabbed illustration, and a limited edition screen print.

The winning students each received Amazon vouchers and a commission for further copies of their work. We can't wait to see where they end up!

Winning design: Happy Portsmouth by Emily Allison, a stage full of Portsmouth's landmarks
Second place: Ship in a bottle screen print by Rachel Douce, inspired by tattoo art
Third place: Sailor series by Lilian Zacharia, inspired by Portsmouth's naval heritage
