River Logo Nets Art Student a Place at University

An art student at West Suffolk College has come up with a winning logo design for the River Lark Catchment Partnership and it’s helped him get a place at University.

Callan Norton, 18, from Bury St Edmunds, is taking a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design, specialising in graphic design, he said he was: “very proud and thrilled” to have his design chosen.

 “It’s nice to get my work out there.” He had taken the logo design with him to a university interview and has now been offered a place to study graphic design at Norwich University of the Arts.

The River Lark Catchment Partnership (RLCP) covers the river itself and surrounding land from Bury St Edmunds onto Mildenhall and the Cambridgeshire border, joining the Great Ouse at Prickwillow and is made up of organisations and individuals who work together dealing with environmental challenges facing the River Lark.

Callan’s design, which is based on a water droplet, will be used on the Partnership’s correspondence, newsletters, leaflets and publicity.  He was presented with a £50 Amazon voucher by Claire Dickson, Area Rights of Way Officer for Suffolk County Council and a member of the Partnership.

Claire said students at the College were asked to design a logo and “Callan fully meet the brief that was provided, covering both the water and land elements. The partnership are thrilled with the logo”.
