Tim’s monogram was chosen by Alan “because it seems to be more in keeping with the spirit of the original concept, and is the simplest and the most interesting from the use of colour and textures.”

Tim, a Year Two BA (Hons) Graphic Design student, said “it was such an honour to be part of the project!”, and as his prize for winning the competition he chose a limited edition print of Alan Kitching’s Abram Games monogram.

Reflecting on the competition, Alan Kitching said “All have a very nice use of combination of the individual letters. The overall response to the competition was very encouraging and all entries had something worthy.”
