Firstly, thank you to all who have applied for our summer scholarships. We received hundreds of entries and we were blown away with the quality of the portfolios.
If you didn’t win this time don’t worry as we have some more amazing scholarships coming your way soon. So, just keep your portfolio pretty and you’ll be ready to go when the next opportunity comes. Frontier wants to continue to offer life changing opportunities, you never know, maybe it will be you that’s next in the spotlight!
Our judge in Milan has made his decision. Alberto Bonisoli, an international guru in art and design education and also the Director of International Academic Affairs at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) and Domus Academy has carefully picked the winning portfolio.
OK, we won’t play with your nerves any further …
Carlos Armando Pineda from Mexico is the bright new talent to receive the scholarship for the ‘Design For All’ summer programme at Domus Academy!!! Looking at his portfolio we can see why. He has successfully showcased outstanding design concepts that are not only well thought out, they also look damn good. Carlos’ ‘About me’ section reads: ‘Creative, loyal, proactive’ – sounds like a winner right?
Carlos will get a full scholarship (worth 1750 €) to Domus Academy this summer. The ‘Design For All’ summer course investigates the key elements of Design for All discipline and methodologies, tools that help the creative process.
The course will be led by Avril Accolla who is the Vice President of EEIDD (Design for All Europe) and IIDD (Design for All Italia). She also cooperates with Italian and International professional studios and companies for innovation in the sectors of High Technology, Product, Research & Development. What a treat!!
Carlos will also receive $1,000 support from Frontier that can be accounted towards travel or accommodation costs. Congratulations Carlos!
