Marcus Crandon and Ryan James – Abercrombie Award trophy design competition winners
During their final year, Marcus Crandon and Ryan James won a competition to design the trophies for the 2011 Abercrombie Awards. The duo used their insight and creative talents to achieve an outstanding piece of artistic design.
Phil Power, senior lecturer in Fine Art, gave the students a briefing about Sir Patrick Abercrombie, the architect of modern Plymouth, and the pair then did their own research before designing the trophy.
Using modern and traditional materials, Marcus and Ryan based their work on the face of Sir Patrick. They focused on highlighting distinctive features of his face such as his monocle, prominent nose and hairline.Since graduating, Marcus has progressed onto the MA Contemporary Art Practice course at University of Plymouth, and his work continues to draw media attention.
