USW Design Competition

February 8, 2017

Now in its third year, the Alumni Office’s 'design our #USWGradbag’ competition is open to all current USW students with an eye for design.

The winning artwork will feature on the graduation bag handed out to almost 4,000 leavers at July and December graduation ceremonies. The winner will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher!

In the past two years, the competition received a number of fantastic designs, so we have high hopes for 2017!

When considering the design, inspiration is all around! Perhaps consider a design that would best reflect today’s students, perhaps a representation of what time spent at uni has meant to you as a current student or produce a design that reflects what it means to be part of the Class of 2017.
