Swedish students seek placements in London

I wonder if any readers might be able to help with placements for three students from Beckmans School in Stockholm. Founded 55 years ago, the school is reputed to be the most creative in the capital. It has educated the most successful art directors in Sweden.

There are three graduation programmes which are three years long; fashion, design and graphic design/advertising. All applicants to these courses must be over 20 years old.

In the second year, the graphic design students are given two weeks training in a design studio/ad agency organised by the school. They would not expect to be paid for this work. I have three students who would like to visit London for two weeks. All of them have arranged accommodation, but they have no connection with design studios or ad agencies.

Emilie Ekstrm has strong creative ideas. She trained in top Swedish ad agencies before starting at the school.

Andreas Pettersson is an all-rounder with good graphic design ideas. He went to art school before coming to Beckmans.

Victoria Kristoffersson is mainly interested in illustration. She was trained in a design studio.

If you can offer these students placements between 11-21 March, please do not hesitate to fax me on 00 46 8 31 04 75.
