Creative agency SAS, part of MSL Group, has announced the winners of its annual scholarship award, open to students at Falmouth University and Chelsea College of Arts. We are proud to announce the three winners for Chelsea College: Josh Kwan, Phoebe Willison and George Farrell.

Chelsea BA Graphic Design Communication students were asked to develop a piece of work exploring the social context of pharmaceutical companies, and an idea that addressed an interesting or important aspect of the industry. They were briefed in February and given until April to submit their finished projects. The students who submitted the top three projects are awarded a cash prize: first place winners receive £3000 each, second place, £2000 and third, £1000 as well as gain invaluable industry links from SAS.

The project is led by creative director Matthew Shannon and executive creative director David Stocks. “We wanted to help the students develop their skills around investigating briefs, developing design outcomes and delivering presentations,” explains Stocks. “It’s aimed at second years as they’re at a crucial stage in their studies, when they’re moving from basic skills to trying to become the finished article.”

Josh Kwan won first place for his innovative project which raises awareness of and funding for orphan drugs. Phoebe Willison was awarded second place for her sci-fi inspired personalised medicine project on maintaining personal health in the future, and in third place, George Farrell created an exciting campaign to raise awareness of the prevalence of counterfeit drugs, and help people identity potential fakes through interactive laser cut posters and cards.
