Many congratulations to the winner of our Talent of the Future competition, Jagrut Mistry.
The competition was open to design students who were asked to choose a design brief based on a number of exhibition and display scenarios. Three finalists were selected and the winner was decided via public vote.
In total, 3,296 people voted to decide their winner and Jagrut won with 35% of the vote.
As well as winning L250, Jagrut will now have the opportunity to work within Nimlok’s award winning design department and be involved with a wide number of 3D design projects, working with some leading brands.
He will also learn how our 3D architecture works in tandem with our on-stand digital engagement tools, including interactive displays and digital content, to present a holistic approach to stand design.
After hearing that he’d won, Jagrut from Loughborough University told us that “I feel elated to have been selected as the winner of this competition; it provides me with further motivation to pursue a career within a creative environment and will be beneficial to developing my experience. The competition has given me the chance to apply my knowledge of design principles effectively where I plan to build upon my experience of entering the competition. ”
“It gives me a great sense of pride that my work has been recognised by numerous people, not only from the general public but also by the judging panel of industry and creative experts. This type of reception to my entry provides me with greater confidence in my skills and abilities. ”
Jagrut explains what his upcoming work placement with Nimlok will mean to him and his career, “A work placement is an exciting prospect which I shall regard as a highly important platform for me to gain professional design experience, my course at university has allowed me to apply skills to a field of design that I would have previously not considered. With a new spark of interest within exhibition design I am eager to work within an industry leading company. ”
Jagrut told us that, “I would definitely like to thank all of the people who had voted for me, but I would also like to thank everybody else who voted as they showed their support for the competition as a whole and supported the idea of giving students the opportunity to gain professional experience. ”
“I would like to acknowledge the other entrants to this competition as they provided a high standard of quality within their entries; I have learnt from their designs and feel that they deserve credit for their passion and competitiveness. “
