Students celebrate design award success

We're big fans of emerging talent here at Creative Bloq and it looks as those two students from the University of the West of England (opens in new tab) are onto big things. At the world famous St Bride Library in London, it was Sophie Balch and Fanny Wacklin-Nilsson's design industry-themed zine 'Fond (opens in new tab)' that beat off stiff industry competition to receive the accolade of 'Best in Show' at the Handmade & Bound (opens in new tab) fair.

Each issue of the magazine takes on a different, design-industry related theme and is packed full of interviews with designers and studios alike.

The first issue focused on editorial design, featuring magazines such as Fire & Knives, Boneshaker, Grafik and Wired. The second looked at Dutch typography with a Risograph printed interior and screen-printed cover. The latest issue explores the relevance of internships, including studio's opinions alongside students' experiences of interning around the globe.
