Jane Goodwin, course director said, “The North & West Norfolk Supporters Group, who recently raised £28,000 for UNICEF projects, contacted the principal asking for help with their publicity.

“We offered the challenge to our second year graphic design students as a live brief and Brandon’s designs were chosen. Brandon has been brilliant.

“We had a fantastic day and following his presentation, other groups have asked to use the templates too. The invitation to UNICEF HQ was an unexpected delight and one that we shall both remember.”
