Last year, Frome College Art, Photography & Graphics students were invited to create logos for Connor Construction (South West) Ltd, to go on gifts for their customers at Christmas. The winning students received cash prizes and gained valuable work experience being involved with such a large company.

Since then, Connor Construction has advertised regularly in our termly Newsletter, and is very proactive in supporting our students.  This year, our Year 12 & 13 Art, Photography & Graphics students were sent invitations to design a new logo for the companies UK fleet of new Volvo trucks.  The 6 week project saw Chloe Adams, George Allen, Grace Beaven, Jasmine Eardley, Ida Joof, Avalon Ross, Sol Smith, Isobel Steven, and Pippa Turner produce fantastic designs. Managing Director, Ian Webb, came into College to view the completed work and to collect it for the company staff to view and select the winners. He said the students work was of such a high standard, it was difficult to make a decision alone. 

After much consultation and deliberation over 2 weeks, the winner was announced as Sol Smith from Year 13 whose design is now on the company’s truck fleet.  Sol won £300 and will have his work shown in the global annual Volvo Magazine. Pippa Turner received a £100 cheque as runner-up.

Neil Allen, Road Planning Director at Connor Construction (South West) Ltd said: “We would like to thank the staff at Frome College who have supported our projects. We would not be able to present these opportunities to their students if it was not for them. The work that was presented to us from everybody was absolutely incredible, what a credit to the teachers and staff at Frome College. A big well done to Sol for his winning design which can now be seen on our Volvo trucks up and down the country and also to Pippa Turner who won £100 at 2nd Place for her design. Thank you to Jane Davis, the Communications Officer, for co-ordinating our project from College, and to Sarah Auld, Teacher of Art, who gave her students the confidence and encouragement to take part. I wonder what our next project will be?”

Our congratulations go to Sol Smith, and all of our highly talented students who submitted such outstanding designs. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Connor Construction (South West) Ltd for their continued support of Frome College.  Their ethos is very much about supporting our local community, and helping to develop opportunities for the young people who live here.
