Students from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham recently took part in a creative competition with Taylor Wimpey West London to design a piece of art that reflects “Farnham through my eyes”.


Students from the first year of the Illustration degree at the university entered the competition by creating a design of their own interpretation of the theme, which were then shared with the West London sales team. The first place winner was Eloise Burgin, age 18, who received a £75 Amazon voucher and has had her design printed and is currently on display in our Abbey View Ardale show home. 


Taking second place was Erin Berry, age 19, and third place Megan Spencer, age 20, who also received Amazon vouchers and have had their designs printed on postcards that are currently being presented to visitors at Abbey View. 


Eloise Burgin, first place winner of the competition, said: “It was a great experience to have the opportunity to take part in the creative competition with Taylor Wimpey West London and I am so pleased to have taken first place. I took inspiration for my piece from things that stand out to me in Farnham, from people to cafes, market stalls and objects. I wanted to capture the vibrant, busy aspects of the town and bring in lots of colour and pattern to create a lively piece of work. I incorporated my own style and colours that are aesthetically pleasing to show Farnham through my eyes.”


Gemma Bibby, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West London, said: “We would like to thank all of the students that took part in the competition. Each of the designs we received depicted a reason why Farnham is such a beautiful and vibrant community.”


“The University for the Creative Arts is considered one of the top creative specialist universities in the UK and we are proud to work with the talented and aspiring artists studying at the university. Congratulations to Eloise, Erin and Megan for creating such brilliant pieces of art and we’re thrilled to share their visions of the community in Farnham with those that visit our Abbey View development.”
