Warrington & Vale Royal College has unveiled a striking new design for its dedicated college bus for the new academic year.
The design is high impact, featuring illustrations of Warrington and Northwich landmarks, set amongst blue skies and lush green landscapes.
The eye-catching bus, which is set to transport students from Winsford and Northwich to the college’s Warrington campus, was designed by Graphic Design Extended Diploma students Téa Hewitt and Imogen Sandbach, with the help of their fellow classmates.
Imogen, who has since progressed to Loughborough University to study Graphic Communications with Illustration, couldn’t contain her excitement upon first seeing the college bus, exclaiming: “It’s fantastic to see our design come to life. Knowing that hundreds of people will see our artwork every day as they’re driving through Cheshire is surreal.”
Warrington’s Own Buses, partners of Warrington & Vale Royal College, were happy to co-ordinate the bus wrap as part of their ongoing contract, providing transport for the college’s 16-18 year old students on bus routes via Irlam, Leigh, Northwich and Winsford.
Gareth Mead, Head of Commercial at Warrington’s Own Buses, commented: “We’ve five wrapped buses at our Warrington depot and are pleased to add this one to our fleet. It was a brilliant and unique opportunity for the college’s graphic design students, and we’re proud to highlight some of the wonderful landmarks we have in Cheshire.”
Former St Nicholas Catholic High School student, Téa, cannot wait to add the special commission to her portfolio, claiming: “It was such a brilliant experience that will certainly help us to standout to prospective employers.
“We were given live briefs throughout our graphic design course at college which gave us a head start and prepared us for university. Our tutors were lovely and so supportive. We can’t thank them enough!”
Téa is currently studying Graphic Design at the University of Huddersfield.
