An Ely art student will see his work used across the county after winning a competition to design a logo for the £10 million Greenways cycle project.
Luke Nash, 18, of Brooke Grove, who is studying visual communication at Cambridge Regional College, was named the winner after the public voted for his green leaf design to feature on cycleway signs throughout the network.
Luke, who received 675 of just over 1,500 votes cast by the public, said he was delighted by the win.
“Winning the competition is amazing. It’s been a great journey and it’s fulfilling to know my work was the one that was picked.
“My plan for the future is to be a graphic designer so this is great for me, for my CV and to apply for jobs. It’s great to know this is just the start of my career,” he said.
Luke’s logo will be displayed on all Cambridge Greenways branding and signs across the Greater Cambridge area as a way-finding tool for cyclists, walkers and horse-riders using the network. Luke won a fitness tracker from competition sponsors Travel4Cambridgeshire, with five runners-up winning vouchers.
