BARCLAY'S EMPLOYEES IN FOCUS

Two students who turned their cameras' focus onto employees at Barclays have unveiled a photographic montage at the bank's Knutsford headquarters. Elizabeth Goodrick and Isobel Oldland, both former Lymm High pupils, were given a live brief by Barclays as part of their A-Level Photography course at Priestley College. They were asked to represent diversity in technology in their images, which they used to create a huge mural that now adorns the wall in one of the buildings at Barclays Technology Centre Radbroke (BTCR). "It was an extremely proud moment for them both to see the mural and wonderful to know everyone visiting Barclays will see their work," said Paul McConnell, Assistant Curriculum Leader of Art & Design at Priestley.

Both students impressed tutors across a range of artistic disciplines and excelled in Photography as well as BTEC Extended Diploma in Art and Design at Priestley College. Their challenge from Barclays was to explore the concept of digital diversity and reflect that in their images. "The mural is a great representation of the diversity of our colleagues here at Radbroke and, by utilising our ongoing partnership with Priestley College, we were also able to demonstrate the local young talent of Knutsford and the surrounding area," said Site Executive Graham Bastin.

Elizabeth and Isobel are continuing their studies at MMU Art Foundation and hope to study a fashion-related BA at a prestigious London institute.

 

STREET ART PYRAMID

Priestley College BTEC Fine Art students staged their first public exhibition at the Pyramid centre.

 

KERRY-ANN GIVES CHILDREN'S HEARING SERVICE NEW LOOK

Kerry-Ann Collar's design has been chosen to become the new logo for the Cheshire Children's Hearing Services Working Group (CHSWG). Cheshire CHSWG are a working group made up of people representing all services involved with hearing impaired children and young people, including parents. The budding student graphic designer, 17, has attended the Deafness Support Network's (DSN) Youth Vibe group for 4 years in order to meet with other young people that are part of the Deaf community. The group has a mixture of members, some deaf, some hearing and some who have parents that are deaf, like Kerry-Ann's parents. Youth Vibe provides youngsters the chance to participate in a wide variety of activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, volunteering programs and regular activities such as ice hockey and go-karting. Alongside fun-filled activities, Youth Vibe also connects children with companies and organisations to collaboratively work on projects that may not otherwise be accessible.

So when an opportunity came up for service users to submit their designs for a new logo for the CHSWG, Youth Vibe encouraged Kerry-Ann to enter. "I can't believe that the CHSWG selected my logo," she said. "I want to be a graphic designer once I have left college and I feel that this whole process has given me more confidence to really go for it! "Without DSN and Youth Vibe, I wouldn't have had the confidence to submit my design to the CHSWG. I feel like I have grown as a person, both personally and professionally."

Members from the CHSWG said; "Kerry-Ann's design was brilliant and we are really happy to make it our new logo. We love it and we are confident Kerry-Ann has an incredibly bright future as a graphic designer. The CHSWG are always looking for parents to become part of the group so if you are interested please get in touch via DSN.

FOUNDATION STUDENT WINS TOP SCHOLARSHIP

Isabelle Pennington-Edmead, who studied Art Foundation at Priestley College, has received one of this year's Alexander McQueen Sarabande foundation scholarships. Only seven were given out and as well as paying her tuition fees it will mean she is offered a studio in Sarabande's London HQ after her degree. To earn the honour, Isabelle's portfolio was assessed by fashion designer Todd Lynn who has worked with many famous style icons including Bono, Beyonce and Mick Jagger. "I feel thrilled and am still in shock at the amazing opportunity I have been given," said Isabelle, who is from Stretton. Isabelle studied A-Levels in Fine Art, History and Textiles before completing an Art Foundation course at Priestley College.

After receiving unconditional offers from all of her university choices the former Bridgewater High School pupil decided to study BA hons Fashion at Nottingham Trent. Priestley Tutor Christina Tyler said: "This opportunity is well deserved not only for Isabelle's creative merits, but also because she continually worked hard and supported others and the college. "She really embodied the Art Foundation ethos and it seems right that many doors are now opening for her."

 

MADDIE RILEY HEADS TO THE BAFTAS

A student from Priestley College has been nominated for a BAFTA after displaying a talent for computer game design. The game is called Blokwork and was inspired by the first project she completed as part of her Computer Game Design course at Priestley. "When I got the confirmation, I honestly couldn't believe I'd made it through," said Maddie, who lives in Widnes. "To go to London and meet all the other entrants and to experience that environment will be unreal, I'm so excited to attend!" Maddie's 3D game features a series of worlds made up of cubes. The player has to rotate them and solve puzzles in lands of different terrains and challenges. When she first devised the idea she didn't have the skill to fulfil its potential but as the BTEC course progressed so did her understanding and talent. Maddie said it felt like an even greater achievement as a girl to get the recognition in what was traditionally seen as a man's industry. "The community has become a lot more gender balanced and equal, but there are still people who hold doubts and see it as a male career so I'm happy that around a third of the nominees in the competition are female," she said. "It's a huge achievement for me either way, but I am glad that we can make a point about it not just being for guys."

BAFTA's Young Game Designers (YGD) competition aims to inspire the UK's game designers and game-makers of the future by giving them the chance to design and make their own game. Winners will have their games developed further with industry professionals and receive a host of other prizes. It is the second consecutive year a Priestley College student has been nominated for a BAFTA. Last year Declan Metcalfe and Joni Ashton were invited to the ceremony although neither took home a trophy. Numbers on Priestley's Computer Design Course are set to double in September as students realise there are opportunities and careers to be made in this multi-billion pound industry. Priestley Tutor Matt Wilson said: "We were amazed last year to have two students go to the BAFTA awards and for Maddie to achieve it this year is just incredible. "We have some really talented students and this just shows we are helping them to achieve their full potential." Priestley College recently had its STEM assured status – the UK's gold standard for science, technology, engineering and maths – renewed, showing it continues to improve levels of education these areas. Maddie, a former pupil at St Peter and Paul Catholic College in Widnes, already has her sights set on the future. She said: "I am going to work to get into university to study Games Art and Modelling so that I can get where I want to in the industry."

 

STREET ART WARRINGTON

A corner of Warrington town centre has been brightened up by artists from Priestley College. Using some of the world's greatest street artists as their inspiration, they created pieces that now adorn the walls and windows of empty shops as well as the alley that links Bridge Street to Warrington Market.

 

THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN HUMAN

We always knew we had some super talented students at Priestley, but this is something special.
Take a look at this animation created by Art Foundation student Guillermo JBueno, can you imagine how much hard work went into creating The Birth of the Modern Human.


SOCOTRA LOGISTICS

BTEC CREATIVE ART AND DESIGN STUDENT OF THE YEAR

Priestley's Zach Wrightson has been named Outstanding BTEC Creative Art and Design Student of the Year at the National BTEC Awards. Ahead of the awards ceremony the winners, their family, friends and nominators attended a Parliamentary reception in the House of Commons. Zach's educational journey is the epitome of a BTEC success story. Having left school with one GCSE above a C grade, he gained a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design at Priestley College before progressing to a BTEC National Extended Diploma in Art and Design. He achieved a triple-starred distinction in his BTEC alongside GCSEs in English and Maths and is now studying Costume Design at Cleveland College of Art and Design.

During his time at college, Zach was a focused and determined student who was popular with his tutors and peers and proved himself as a talented and innovative designer. One of his biggest challenges was to develop and pitch a wallpaper design for Barclays Bank. His winning pitch, concept and design were described by his tutors and the Barclays team as exceptional and his wallpaper now adorns Barclays' Knutsford offices. Zach also contributed significantly to wider college life during his time at Priestley, designing costumes for the college's catwalk shows and attending every college open event where he gave talks to visiting groups of students and encouraged them to follow the vocational route.

The judges described Zach is an outstanding and exemplary student whose BTEC journey has taken him from a school-leaver with poor GCSE grades to a highly capable, confident learner. Zach said: "I cannot believe I have won this award. This BTEC course and the opportunities I have experienced has enabled me to achieve the maximum grade available and helped me to begin the journey to gaining my Costume Design degree, which I hope to use working within the television and film industry."

 

BAFTA NOMINATIONS FOR GAMES STUDENTS

Two students from Priestley College will walk the red carpet after being nominated for BAFTAs. Declan Metcalfe and Joni Ashton, who have both just completed their Computer Games Design BTEC Extended Diploma, are finalists in the BAFTA Young Game Designers competition. They will attend a ceremony at BAFTA's headquarters in Piccadilly where they will walk the red carpet and see their games displayed. "I can't believe it," said Joni, a former pupil at The Heath in Runcorn. "It's amazing to be nominated and something incredible to look forward to."
BAFTA said just 40 young hopefuls, who were selected by a jury of industry experts, will attend the ceremony. The competition aims to inspire the game designers and makers of the future by giving them the chance to develop their concepts with industry professionals.


Harvey Elliott, Chair of the BAFTA Games Committee, said: "The quality of entrants to the BAFTA YGD competition increases every year, and this year's finalists are amongst the best young game designers in the country." Declan, formerly of Cardinal Newman Catholic High School, said: "To make the finals of such a prestigious competition feels like a huge achievement. It really does make me want to achieve even greater things within the industry." Declan's game concept is called 'Plate Defenders' and involves the player defending and cleaning plates using anti-germ tower defences. The germs evolve making progressive stages of the game more difficult. Jellyfish was Joni's vision and his main character's quest was to return to his family negotiating explosive mines en route. It uses the players' own music to set the rhythm of the game.

Priestley College introduced a Computer Games Design course four years ago and has seen two successful cohorts go on to further studies and careers.
Both Declan and Joni secured triple distinction star in their BTEC results when they were announced last week. Priestley Tutor Matt Wilson said: "I am extremely proud of both of them and they thoroughly deserve this recognition. To have one student from Priestley nominated for a BAFTA is incredible, but two is unbelievable."

BARCLAYS MURAL POPPY REACHES NEW HEIGHTS FOR FMP

Barclays in Knutsford wanted a huge mural for the entrance to one of its campus buildings on its 64-acre technology centre Radbroke, they called on the Priestley College Poppy Willock to create her vision of ‘Building Tomorrow’s Bank’. It was no small feat for 5’2 Poppy as the painting stood more than three foot taller than the young artist. “It was an honour to be commissioned by Barclays for a piece that will be so prominent at their technology centre,” said Poppy, from Warrington. The former Cardinal Newman Catholic High School pupil was given a brief by Barclays to showcase technology of the future in a fun and creative way. She explored themes in the final design of ‘community’ and ‘futurism’, which allowed her to communicate a day in the life of a Barclays’ customer, as well as representing the bank’s innovative technologies.

Her response took 11 days to complete and is now greeting hundreds of Barclays colleagues and visitors every day. “We have developed a strong partnership with Priestley College to help create a business context for the student’s work and spotted Poppy’s talent during another project,” said Julian Bucknall, Global Technology Colleague Engagement Lead. “We set Poppy this brief and are delighted with the end result.” Poppy recently completed her BTEC Extended Diploma in Graphic Design at Priestley College in Warrington and works as a freelance designer and illustrator. She starts at Bolton University in September on a BA (Hons) in Animation & Illustration.

 

WOODLAND WARDROBE ARLEY HALL EXHIBITION 2

The Woodland Wardrobe was an exhibition of work created by students from Priestley College.

This exhibition is the result of a collaborative project between Arley Hall and the college's AS Textiles and Photography students. Having undertaken a research trip to Arley last October, the students explored the grounds, taking photographs to inform the development of their ideas. They drew inspiration from the surface textures, organic forms and patterns found within The Grove as well as the formal gardens and architectural features of Arley's buildings.The aim was for students to consider how they could bring aspects of the external landscape into the interior of Arley Hall. It was a fantastic opportunity for students to display their work, complimented by the annual garden festival.

Many thanks to Arley for allowing us access to the hall and gardens.

 

CABINET OF CURIOSITIES WARRINGTON MUSEUM

Curious artefacts have inspired an exhibition by a group of Warrington students. Warrington Museum and Art Gallery opened its Cabinet of Curiosities to Fine Art students from Priestley College and asked them to create their own pieces. Now the guest curators have put together an exhibition that will run for the next year alongside many of the unusual items in the collection. “One of our aims at Culture Warrington is to support and nurture new and developing artistic talent in the region,” said Exhibitions and Services Manager Derek Dick.

 

BARCLAYS LIVE BRIEF 2015

For the 2nd year running, Extended Diploma YR2 Art and Design and Graphic Design students have been given the opportunity to design interiors and app campaigns for Barclays. We also had the chance to see last years winning designs in situ as they adorn the office walls.

 

IMAGEMAKER MAGAZINE

For approaching a decade, A magazine has been challenging Priestley College students to design some of its pages.
Professional Imagemaker – which is delivered to photographers in 72 countries and read across the world– has asked BTEC Graphic Design students at Priestley to create pages fit for its readership. "The biggest thing the students bring to it is they have no pre-conceived ideas of how our pages should look so therefore they come up with some incredibly fresh and original ideas," said Mike McNamee, editor of Professional Imagemaker. Click the image below to view the work.

 

GAME JAM

YOUNG designers have taken part in the kind of challenge that has led to the creation of some of the world's most successful computer games.
Priestley College staged a 'game jam' for students on the Computer Games Design course and four different ideas were developed to the point of playing in just four days.
Joni Ashton, a former student at The Heath, said he'd been surprised by what could be achieved in such a short timeframe.
"A lot of people were being very ambitious given the time we had, but it meant there were lots of great ideas," said the 18-year-old, who is combining the course with an A-Level in Computing.
On day one of the jam students were given four themes from which to develop their idea. After that, they were on their own. No assistance from teachers, they were just asked to put the skills and knowledge they had collected on their BTEC Level 3 course to good use. The results even impressed BAFTA-nominated Niall Taylor who oversaw the challenge along with former Priestley student Josh Campher who recently graduated from Futureworks School of Media in Manchester.


"I was amazed by what they achieved," said Niall. "To create a working game with visuals in that time is a real credit to them."
Students created games called Spoonfeeding your Nan, Alien Escape, Eve of the Living Bread and Killer Kev's Magical Christmas.
Each game was completely different both in terms of story and playing style with one group opting for a 3D visual that leant itself to use with the Oculus Rift, a piece of technology now available for students at Priestley.
"The jam was all about generating ideas and seeing how far the students could take them," said Tutor Matthew Wilson. "A lot of major games on the market today started in this way and it was so successful in Priestley we definitely hope to do it again." The four games produced by Priestley students are now available at www.priestleycgd.itch.io

BARCLAYS LIVE BRIEF

Students have created wallpaper that is set to inspire workers at one of the world's leading banks.
Barclays set Art & Design students from Priestley College the brief of brightening up some of their workspaces at its global technology centre Radbroke in Knutsford.
They then had to present their ideas to key members of the Barclays team during a Dragons' Den style meeting.
"The students were encouraged to consider themes that reflected the culture of the site which included technology, transformation, Barclays Values and customer service," said Peter Hartley, Regional Portfolio Manager in Global Real Estate and Resilience.

"The quality of the work meant that it was difficult to select just one winner so three wallpaper designs will be commissioned to decorate walls at Radbroke and our new offices in Manchester."
The winning design was by 18-year-old Zach Wrightson who is studying the Extended Diploma in Art & Design at Priestley College.
He used the theme of transformation and examined smart materials under a microscope to see how they changed colour and texture at different temperatures.
Zach, a former pupil at William Beamont, used these patterns as inspiration for his designs.
"My concept related to the innovation, development of smart business practices and customer focus of Barclays transforming banking," he said.
"I selected a neutral colour range to link in with any colour of furniture creating a calm but warm interior suitable for a large open plan office space."

Runners-up were ex-Culcheth High pupil Sechele Mtitimila and Elizabeth Justice, formerly of Great Sankey High, whose designs will also be used by Barclays in their offices.

A second challenge was set by the bank, which transacts billions of pounds a day and has millions of customers across the world.
Priestley's Graphic Design students were asked to create an advertising campaign which could be used to commission the next viral advert for Pingit – an app that allows you to send and receive money using just a telephone number.

Former Bridgewater High School pupil Rebecca Walton's concept – featuring people's pets pictured using Pingit on a range of mobile devices – was chosen as the idea with the most potential.
Runners-up were former Lymm High pupil Sophie Cahill and James Cannell, who previously studied at Warrington Collegiate.
Social Media Manager Helen Rothwell, who judged the Pingit marketing campaigns, said: "The standard of all the candidates' work was fantastic and each of them had paid good attention to detail.

"I was very impressed and it was interesting to see how they all interpreted the brief."

 

MEGAN'S ARTWORK TAKES FLIGHT

A young artist is to have one of her drawings exhibited for the first time – in the House of Commons. Megan Jenner, who studies A Level Fine Art and BTEC Level 3 Computer Game Design at Priestley College, has been invited to London by the Association of Colleges to see her work in the exhibition. "It's the first time I have ever had my work exhibited so it is very exciting," said Megan, who is 17 and from Brookvale in Runcorn. "I've been to London but never the House of Commons so to be invited there is great." Megan will be at the launch of the exhibition, which will be hosted by Alan Johnson MP and attended by the Education Secretary Michael Gove, on March 16. Her charcoal drawing – a stunning study of a great tit in flight – will sit alongside a variety of other works in the Sixth Form Colleges Art Exhibition. Priestley Tutor Steven Lane said it would be a great opportunity for Megan who is a former pupil at The Heath in Runcorn. "To be chosen from so many other pieces of art that will have been submitted for a national exhibition such as this is an incredible achievement," he said. Megan has been drawing since she was a little girl and was inspired by her granddad, George Arthur Gittens, who used to paint birds on local waters. Her study of the bird in flight is part of her Fine Art exam piece for which she is predicted to achieve A/A* Next year she is planning to do an Art Foundation at Priestley College in Warrington before heading to university where she plans to switch her focus to computer game design. "My combination of studies at Priestley has really helped to benefit my chances of a career in computer games design because I am learning skills and techniques in Fine Art that I might not otherwise have had," said Megan.

 

 

ROYAL ACADEMY HONOUR FOR DANIEL

An artist has received one of the greatest accolades in the art world for his age group. Daniel Banks, who studies Fine Art and Graphic Design at Priestley College, has seen a piece of his artwork included in the Royal Academy's A Level Summer Exhibition Online. His piece – Construction 2 – was one of only 36 included in the showcase out of 2,100 entries from 1,280 aspiring artists. "It took a few days to sink in, but now it has I feel extremely proud," said Daniel, from Rydal Avenue in Lower Walton. "It was a joke in my class that I never picked up a pencil because I was more interested in construction so this has been great for my confidence because it means I was doing something right." Each year the Royal Academy chooses pieces for its online exhibition that it believes will inspire other young artists across the country. This year's judges – including curator Dr Adrian Locke, RA Schools student Julie Born Schwartz and Humphrey Ocean RA, one of Britain's most successful contemporary painters – narrowed the entries down to 36, all of which are now in the virtual gallery. Daniel, who is 18, was inspired by the work of Janet Nathan for his piece, which is made from a deconstructed old bench and new pieces of wood. The former Bridgewater High pupil hopes it will generate discussion because different people will see different things within the lines and shapes he has created. "While I've been at Priestley I have discovered that I would much rather create something structurally than paint or draw," said Daniel, who is staying at college to complete an Art Foundation course. The Royal Academy describes having work chosen for the exhibition as one of the greatest accolades for young artists. Curator Dr Adrian Locke said: "The overall standard of work submitted remains impressively high, a very positive reflection on their creative imagination and technical ability. "At a time when art as a subject is under threat, it is essential to realise how important it remains as a means of expression. "It has been a pleasure to judge the sophisticated and mature work and it is worth remembering the valuable support of teaching staff in the creative process."

 

CATWALK SHOW

Over the years Priestley has hosted many Catwalk Shows. This annual event has helped to showcase the talents of the students here studying BTEC Fashion/Textiles and the A level Textiles courses. The event has also helped raise money for many charitable causes. Click on the image below to view an archive of these events.

 

INSPIRED BY...

Young artists have drawn inspiration from a museum's art collection for a new exhibition in Warrington. BTEC students from Priestley College were given access to the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery's archives as a starting point for their paintings. Their responses are now on display at the museum alongside the originals by artists such as Swoon, Candice Tripp, Blek Le Rat and Elbow Toe. Priestley Tutor Wendy Moore said the students were inspired by many different aspects of the work to which they were introduced. "It could be the colours, the technique, the subject matter or the story behind the artist that appealed to them," she said. "They were then asked to research the painting and the artist and create a new piece of work in response." All the students are in the second year of their BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Fine Art and their talent is obvious from the exhibition. Derek Dick, Exhibitions and Visitor Services Manager at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery, said: "I've always described the Museum as a resource and a place for inspiration so it was great to be able to work with Priestley in this way. "The students' work looks amazing and it has been great to see it develop from their first visit to the museum in November, through my regular visits to the college and finally seeing the work up on the walls." The show is in the large art gallery and includes a piece called '1969' by former St Gregory's High pupil Alice Cornelia who is also studying Modern History at Priestley. She was inspired by Swoon's 'Argentina' and was moved by the artist's ability to show people considered as 'lower down in society' in a heroic light. Alice's image of a child highlights the turbulence of the Civil Rights movement and has references to the Black Panther Party. "Innocence can be seen in the hearts on the shirt emphasising a sense of neutrality children possess while being surrounded by such upheaval," she said. "This is contrasted by powerful images of Black Panther posters in the background of banners, protests and dominant leaders – portraying a sense of upheaval that was created."

The idea of a partnership between Priestley College and the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery was first proposed in July and the theme of the 'Human Form' was chosen. About 20 paintings from the museum's collection were selected ranging from contemporary art to traditional Victorian portraits. Former Sir Thomas Boteler pupil Callum Ford used Candice Tripp's 'Ed and Viv's Very Slow Adventure' as inspiration and also tapped into his own dislike of clowns. His work reflects Tripp's minimal use of colour and the sense of fear created by the South African artist's work. "I liked the idea of turning a clown into something that people wouldn't want to see," said Callum. "The hair includes subtle text like 'Look look, see the clown.' I included this because I wanted to consolidate that contradicting message of children's expectations of clowns, and the realisation that clowns are not always how they seem." Elbow Toe's 'Brother Can You Spare a Dime' inspired Rebecka Warburton's response called 'It Takes Two to Tango'. Former Birchwood High pupil Rebecka enjoyed Elbow Toe's use of symbolism and to further her understanding researched proverbs and their deeper meaning. "I was interested in the theme of conflict and used yellow roses to symbolise jealousy and antlers on the male dancer to symbolise his infidelity," she said. 'Inspired by' runs at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery until July 12 and the students' work is for sale.
