Talented Graphic Design Students Artwork chosen for Staff Member's Debut Novel

Date posted: 15th February 2024

We're absolutely thrilled to share that one of our BA (Hons) Graphic Design students, Paige Young, has recently crafted the cover for a staff member's debut novel.

Ian Cran is an Access and Participation Officer at our University Centre and his debut supernatural thriller 'The Apparitions of Ruin' currently holds a five star rating on Amazon.

The design of the book was opened up to our BA (Hons) Graphic Design group who created several impressive book covers after reading the first chapter of Ian's novel.

Paige's cover emerged as the winner, with Ian stating "The feedback on the cover design has been really positive. Paige's design stood out to me because of how striking it is, solely black and white except for just a tiny splash of colour for the car tail lights."

Congratulations to both Ian Cran and Paige Young on this remarkable accomplishment, at the University University Centre Blackburn College we're always delighted to provide our students the opportunities to showcase their talents both inside and outside the classroom.
