A COLLEGE student is the pride of his department after scooping a prestigious graphic design award.
Jack McFall, 17, pictured, of South Downs College, was voted best out of 50 entries to come up with a moving web banner for the charity Keep a Child Alive.
He created a range of gripping visual effects and powerful messages to raise awareness about the charity’s work across the world providing life-saving AIDS treatment, care, nutrition, support services and love to children in Africa and India.
The series of animations are plotted against a stark blue and black background with harrowing statistics like two million people dying from AIDS each year in bold black ink.
Paul Parsons, graphics design lecturer, said: ‘I’m so proud of Jack, he’s done a brilliant job. All our students entered the competition but his was considered best because it was so well put together and the message was incredibly powerful.
‘I think it’s important that our students work to real life projects, because it gives them that extra drive and enthusiasm to do their best. We have a lot of talented students here and Jack is certainly one of them. I know he’ll go far.’
Jack was presented with his award at the charity’s Black Ball event at The Roundhouse in London.
