The annual prize awarded by the Museum of Bath at Work in memory of its founder Russell Frears has been won by Bath Spa University design student Kate Fawcett.
The award of £500, given for outstanding work in the field of exhibition and graphic design, has been awarded to a student at the University for several years.
Kate Fawcett’s submission for an alternative visual identity for the Museum was considered the most impressive although the standard of the other eight submissions was very high.
Director Stuart Burroughs said ‘ Unlike many prizes which are awarded for such work we are in a position where, with discussion and approval of the prize winner, we might apply their ideas to our own work.
Kate’s suggestions and designs were very good indeed!’
Russell Frears, who died in 2010, had worked in the United States for the ground breaking design consultancy The Eames Office and helped found the Museum of Bath at Work in 1976.
