HND in Graphic Design graduates secure places on ‘ICAD Upstarts’

Congratulations to our HND in Graphic Design graduates Nicole O’Connor and Julie Smyth (pictured below) who have both secured places on the coveted ‘ICAD Upstarts’ programme for 2021/22.

Places on the programme are won by completing a challenging brief issued by ICAD each year. Once on the course, Upstarts begin by participating in a series of skills-based workshops. After this, each Upstart is assigned a mentor who will help them develop their ideas and challenge them to push the standards of your work, the way you develop it and present it. The long list of successful creatives who got their start through the Upstarts programme is a testament to its ongoing success.

Nicole and Julie are latest in a long line of BCFE Graphic Design graduates to secure the prized places on the ICAD Upstart Graduates Programme over the years.
