I was both shocked and honoured to receive the Thomas Parker Award at the Lincoln School of Art & Design degree show on Friday evening. I really wasn't expecting anything and even when Barrie began to introduce me at the Private View, I thought perhaps I was to present an award to a student.
The special award was to mark the University of Lincoln's last year at Thomas Parker House. The Graphic Design course, along with the rest of the school, will move to a purpose-built building on the main university campus, at Brayford Pool, later this year.
It was fantastic to be back in Lincoln and was great to catch up with fellow alumni, members of the Lincoln Societié de Design Typographique and of course, Barrie and Philippa. We also welcomed three new members to the exclusive LSDT club.
