De Montfort University graduate awarded at top new design event for plans for a new St. Margaret's Bus Station

John Neal from Glenfield in Leicester, a recent graduate design from De Montfort University, has just completed a highly successful week exhibiting his award-winning work at London’s prestigious New Designers exhibition.

John exhibited his project entitled 'Bus Station Design' from 11th July - 14th July. The project was completed as part of his BA (Hons) Interior Design degree course and in the face of stiff competition, he was awarded The Portland Future of Design Award for Spatial Design.

"I was shocked and surprised to receive the award. It’s given me more confidence and self-belief in my work as an interior designer."

"I was shocked and surprised to receive the award. It’s given me more confidence and self-belief in my work as an interior designer. As result of the award I am hoping that many of my ambitions will be realised," says John.

John’s winning project is new a design concept for Leicester St Margaret’s Bus Station. The bus station was redesigned to enhance the travel experience for passengers and also to become a feature of the city centre, restoring public confidence in the bus transport system.

Staged at the Business Design Centre in Islington, New Designers attracts over 20,000 visitors from industry, media and the general public keen to see the best new British design talent.

A group of over 50 art and design graduates from De Montfort University were selected to represent the Faculty of Art & Design at the show, and to participate in this unique opportunity to launch their design careers.
