AN INNOVATIVE new Weston event has been given an 'instantly memorable' look, thanks to the creative efforts of a talented student.

Graphic design students at Weston College were invited to draw up an eye-catching logo for Film Weston, a community festival running during Arts Week in May.

First year student CJ Crawley, aged 20, was picked as the winner after festival organisers praised his ‘memorable’ donkey-themed creation.

Ross Bliss from Film Weston said: “We briefed the 
students as we would any creative agency and they certainly rose to the challenge. We were really impressed by the quality of the work they produced.

“Ultimately, CJ’s striking design was selected from a number of fantastic entries. It was true to the town and an instantly memorable image.”

College tutor Tod Bissett said: “The students really enjoyed the challenge of designing and proposing logos for Ross and the team at Film Weston.

“Working on live briefs is something that we encourage to ensure the students gain maximum exposure to the industry, providing them with the skills to take forward into their careers.

“It was wonderful for them to be in volved in a unique initiative that will have a positive impact on the town.”

Winner CJ added: “It is great to be a part of something that sounds exciting and interesting for Weston. I feel that this could be a great thing for me.”

Film Weston take places at Loves Cafe in West Street from May 8-10.
