Three NTU students' designs have been displayed at the China Design Centre in London as a result of a competition run during NTU Global Week in March.

The competition was to design branding and packaging concepts for a Chinese Tea company. The aim of the competition was to help promote Chinese Tea in the UK and to develop the company's brand.

The winner of first prize, £500 cash plus a week-long trip to China to visit a tea plantation, was MSc Smart Design student Martina Luptakova, who commented: "Winning this award has brought me several invaluable experiences and opportunities. Moreover, my dream to visit China will soon come true. It is such a great feeling!" Martina will be heading to China in October for her week-long trip.

The second prize of £500 was awarded to BA (Hons) Graphic Design final-year student, Oliwia Wojcik, who said: "I entered the competition because I'm going to spend the summer studying Mandarin at BLCU, as part of the Vice Chancellor's Mandarin Scholarship, which I was awarded in February. I felt that having a chance to exhibit my work at the China Design Centre was a great opportunity to get my work noticed by the Asian creative industry and to connect with Chinese designers."

Third place went to postgraduate student Shu Yi Wang, who said: "I think it's great to have this event as part of the University's Global Week. The competition has encouraged me to express Chinese culture in an international but distinctive way."
