STUDENT Lucy Senior has spent a few nights on the tiles.
But she hasn’t been living the high life. Instead the Kirklees College teenager has spent her time more profitably, by designing a tiling scheme for a new bathroom.
She was one of the 30 students on the college’s BTEC Foundation Diploma Art and Design course who were invited to take part in a bathroom design competition organised by Huddersfield Town partners Bathrooms4all, of St John’s Road, Huddersfield.
And Lucy’s efforts paid off when she won first prize.
Other prizewinners were: Kyle McCartney, who won the award for the most commercially viable tile design, Joshua Edley, best research, Jack Murphy, best presentation, and Roham Ardeshirzadeh, smartest presenter.
The Dewsbury winners were recently presented with their certificates at the college’s Create 2012 show at Batley School of Art.
Lucy’s winning tile design will be displayed in the showroom throughout the summer where customers can comment on the design, with the possibility of having the tile manufactured.
Lucy, 17, of Earlsheaton, said: “I’m really pleased to win this competition. It was great to be given a brief by a real client and pitch our designs to them.
“It gave us all a taste of how life would be as a designer competing in the world of business.”
The competition was launched as a result of the partnership work of Huddersfield Town who regularly link their corporate business partners together.
