Taylor Patterson is pleased to announce that Carey Johnson, a student at Cardinal Newman College, is the winner of its recent competition to produce a piece of artwork for its Preston head office.

The financial advisory group commissioned students on the Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Art and Design course at Newman College to produce some unique pieces for its recently refurbished offices at Lanson House, Winckley Gardens, which used to be owned by the College. The sixth-formers were more than happy to accept the challenge and set to work with the theme of ‘My Surroundings’.

Students experimented with a wide variety of materials, techniques and processes to develop innovative ideas for the project. They explored drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, printmaking and embroidery to develop personal responses to the task.

Aimee Gilfoyle, course leader, explained: “Producing artwork for Taylor Patterson has given each of our students a fantastic opportunity to experience working for a client in a professional context.

“The BTEC Diploma in Art and Design is a vocational course and it has been an extremely valuable experience for all our students to work to the constraints and requirements of a real design brief. Every student has worked hard to produce a professional piece and it was a privilege to showcase the work to Taylor Patterson.”

Taylor Patterson managing director, Gillian Bardin, and director, Louise Potter, were invited to the College to whittle the artists down to a shortlist of eleven. Taylor Patterson staff were then asked to vote for their favourite piece, and Carey Johnson was declared the winner.

His picture depicts the famous Victorian street lamps at the rear of the Harris Museum on Lancaster Road, and it now features on the front cover of Taylor Patterson’s quarterly publication, The Adviser. The original is also on display at the company’s head office along with a number of other chosen pieces, which included abstract representations of the iconic red phone boxes on Market Street.

Louise Potter, director at Taylor Patterson, said: “I’d like to thank every student who submitted their artwork. The competition was fierce and it was a really tough decision for our staff to choose the favourite piece. “As Lanson House was previously owned by the College, we hope that the artwork will create a visible link between the two organisations as well as provide valuable experience for the students themselves.”
