Rhona-Anne Breeze

First year Interactive Media student Rhona-Anne was one of the winners of this year’s Royal Opera House Design Challenge. Over 300 students from 30 different colleges entered the annual design competition. Despite being up against HNC and HND Level students, her unique style of design work caught the judges’ eye and she was awarded the prize as winner of the marketing strategy element of the competition.

Rhona-Anne said: “It’s been an incredible first year; firstly winning the design competition and being able to see my work on display in the Royal Opera House, and now being recognised for my achievement by the College. I can’t wait for next year!”
