A Louth girl will see her creative design come to life on an iconic filofax organiser after coming out on top in a competition.

Twenty-two-year-old Rebecca Mountain, a student of Illustration and Animation at Anglia Ruskin University, will now embark on a six-month internship with the firm.

This summer Filofax launched its first ever design competition which was won by Rebecca who now has the opportunity to follow the journey of her design as it comes to life in an authentic personal organiser.

Rebecca said: “I am thrilled to have won the competition. It is so difficult to break into the creative industry for graduates at the moment so I couldn’t be more thankful.

“I can’t wait to start the placement with the Filofax team, let alone have my design sold next spring.”

In June, students from Colleges and Universities across the UK were given an opportunity to design and submit a cover print for a Filofax personal organiser.

“We were charmed with the creative and well considered inspiration behind the design, which met the brief perfectly,” said Filofax NPD Director, Julia Langhein.

“The striking hand illustrated cover pattern, skilfully created, using a beautiful on trend colour palette, made Rebecca’s design a worthy winner, which is sure to have broad appeal.”

Rebecca’s winning print will be applied to a personal organiser which will be launched in spring 2013.
