Festive celebrations have come early for a Plymouth University employee after his design was chosen to front the institution’s Christmas e-card.
Operations and Maintenance Analyst Lee Fradley impressed the judges of the annual competition with his creation of this year’s winter theme.
He used three snowmen to form the University’s 150th anniversary logo, set on a blanket of snow in the Jigsaw garden with the Roland Levinsky Building as the backdrop.
Lee explains the inspiration behind his idea: “In the University’s 150th anniversary year, staff and students have been integral to the celebrations. I thought it would be nice to end the year on that note and incorporate what we all dream of most at Christmas – snow.”
The competition was open to staff and students, and Lee’s winning entry will be available on the staff intranet e-card system for staff to send out. It will also be used to create a festive feel on the University’s website over the Christmas period, and as his prize, he will also receive a £50 voucher for the retail outlet of his choice.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Wendy Purcell, who judged the competition said: “We know our staff and students are both imaginative and passionate, and that has been borne out through this competition. The standard of entries was excellent, and Lee’s winning design also shows how everyone has engaged with our 150th anniversary celebrations.”
