Royal College of Art graphics graduate Melissa Price has won the first Wit in Communication award from The Partners in memory of founder-partner Nick Wurr, who died in 1994 (DW 20 January 1995). Melissa is pictured next to her Panoramic view of Britain, consisting of identical postcards showing a roundabout saying ‘Greetings from the Isle of Man’, and other destinations around the UK. Her project brief was ‘A place which could be anywhere’. The 1000 award, which will be made annually, was judged by RCA tutors, Nick Wurr’s family and friends and designers from The Partners. Partner James Beveridge says Melissa’s work was chosen because ‘it stopped us in our tracks and made us all laugh out aloud’.
