A STUDENT from Louth has been given one of only 20 places available worldwide on a prestigious design academy graduate scheme.
Naomi Hodgson, a final year Advertising student at the University of Central Lancashire, has been selected for the D&AD Graduate Academy Scheme.
She will spend three months working with top industry companies such as Google, MTV and The Moving Picture Company as well as working with creative professionals at a creative bootcamp and taking part in a series of industry workshops to build up her portfolio.
The D&AD Graduate Academy scheme is open to entrants from across the world who have been shortlisted for a D&AD Yellow Pencil Student Award.
