Interior design year 1 portfolio prize winner, second year student, Isobel White, BA (Hons) Interior Design, said, "It feels unexpected to win an award tonight. I worked really hard on my project so winning this makes me feel proud and as if I shouldn't underestimate myself.
"It feels like there are so many options on campus for us to work with now. The tutors are really pushing us to experiment with different materials and styles in our work. I really want to use the 3D printer - we learnt about that in my first year here, so I can't wait to see what that can do to my designs."
Interior design year 2 portfolio prize winner, third year student, Taiwo Popoola, BA (Hons) Interior Design, said, "I didn't know I was going to win an award tonight, but I am very grateful as it shows that people have appreciated my work.
"UEL has brought out something in me that I didn't even know was there. I have always been a creative person through my art and painting. However, when it comes to interior design, I have learned so much since being here - our tutors constantly push us to develop our work and achieve more than what we think is possible."
