Six outstanding logos created by Cambridge Regional College students for the £10million Cambridge Greenways cycling project have been shortlisted by judges – and now the public is being invited to choose the winner.

More than 50 visual communications students from the college created design concepts for the 12 Greenways schemes, with judges choosing the final six to go to a public vote.

The students visited Shire Hall to present their designs to the panel of judges which included the Chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership, Cllr Francis Burkitt, the Joint Assembly member Cllr Noel Kavanagh, Project Manager Simon Manville and Mike Scialom from the Cambridge Independent newspaper.

The winning logo will be used on signs and branding for all the Cambridge Greenways routes. Members of the public can vote for their favourite design on the Cambridge Independent website until Sunday, 7 January, with the result announced the following week.

Cllr Burkitt said: “It’s been a privilege to be involved in this competition and I would like to thank the students for their hard work. They clearly listened to the brief we provided and have encapsulated the key Greenways themes of transport and nature.

“It was a very difficult selection process due to the volume of great ideas but we feel that the six we have shortlisted would be a great representation of the Greenways.”

The winning design will appear on all future Cambridge Greenways branding, with the shortlisted students winning prizes courtesy of Travel for Cambridgeshire.

Abner Fraser, Lecturer in Visual Communications within Art and Design at Cambridge Regional College, said: “This has been an amazing opportunity for our students to gain invaluable experience working with a big client on an exciting project.

“The students were motivated by the prospect of having their work displayed across Greater Cambridge and I would like to thank the GCP for this fantastic opportunity which has given the students a great platform that will boost their future prospects.”

Roxanne De Beaux from CamCycle said: “We are pleased to see the creative designs produced by the Cambridge Regional College students which reflect the aspirations of this high-quality cycling network to safely connect 12 surrounding villages to Cambridge.”

The 12 Cambridge Greenways will be attractive walking, cycling and equestrian routes segregated from traffic, connecting Cambridge to surrounding villages. The aim is to increase levels of cycling and walking, reduce congestion and help to improve the health of the Greater Cambridge population.
