Cockington Court creative director Marissa Wakefield, said: "We chose Lynette's logo design because it was such a strong and powerful logo and lent itself well to our designs; also it was created by Lynette from wood blocks, so has a unique handmade element which is empathetic to the ethos of the Court's uniqueness in supporting talented crafts and artist makers."
Katy-Jane Middleditch from Torquay won first prize for her Mussel Shell Cluster curtain tie back.
Katy's success follows on from that of Jonathan Brooks from Torquay who won the 'Best in Year' Student National Award for Aspiring Designers from D&AD for his innovative hotel redesign.
Tony Weaver, interior design lecturer, said: "It is very rewarding to see the students develop their creativity while they are with us and for this to be acknowledged so emphatically in the national and international prizes they win.
"We love hearing about the exciting and stimulating jobs they gain after their study with us; certainly there is little problem with graduate employment in the creative sector if you have the creativity and drive which employers want."
