Canterbury School of Visual Arts and Eurotunnel have begun working together on a fantastic new student competition, where CSVA students were encouraged to submit their own designs to be printed on vinyl and wrapped around a Eurotunnel train for five years.
Students had presented their ideas to a panel of judges from Eurotunnel and 10 finalists had been shortlisted for the project. On Monday 28th January, the winner was announced to the students via video reveal from Eurotunnel in Folkestone.
Rhys Evans, who studies UAL Extended Diploma in Graphic Design Level 3, was announced the winner of the competition and is delighted to have his work chosen for such a fantastic installation. Rhys will have the opportunity to meet with Eurotunnel’s team of designers in Eastbourne and work closely with them to arrange his design to fit the scale and dimensions of the train carriage.
The unveiling ceremony of the finished wrapped train will be held in the coming weeks, with a prestigious guest list and press release at the event. This long-term art installation will be seen on an international platform, which is brilliant exposure for Rhys to kick-start his career in the art world, for CSVA and for Canterbury College. Congratulations, Rhys!
