The Student Starpack Awards – which began in 1964 – challenges design students from across the world with a set of briefs all with the theme of finding a solution to a problem, set by leading design organisations, agencies, and manufacturers.
The judging panel looked for students who can express creativity and conventional thinking in their ideas. Those who met the criteria and produced outstanding concepts were rewarded with cash prizes and opportunities to undertake work experience with a sponsor.
Altogether, ten Loughborough students received gold, eight silver, seven bronze and three highly commended at the awards ceremony which took place virtually on Wednesday 24 June.
In addition, Natasha Burt was the proud recipient of ‘Best in Show’, the most prestigious award of the evening.
The product Natasha created was part of a brief to design packaging for a luxury fragrance. Her packaging concept was inspired by the Swiss Alps and designed to stand out on luxury fragrance displays, such as those found in airport duty-free shops.
