Chicken scholarship for Beckmans student
-"It feels partly like a receipt for doing something good. And it's also nice to get an award like this and see your name on the diploma. I'm more used to being behind things and not putting my name on so much," says Viktoria.
"With her sense of colour and product design, she immediately captures the imagination of the entire jury. And when that feeling kicks in, you know something is good. And something is kind of all this person created. Whether it's a coaster, a photograph or a table, it doesn't matter. We want it all at home on our walls and in our rooms, but most of all we want to see more. Definitely a portfolio to take off your hat for!"
Beckman alumnus Julius Tuvenvall also one of the scholarship holders
A former Beckman student, Julius Tuvenvall, was also named one of this year's Chicken Fellows. Julius graduated from Visual Communication 2020 and has since worked at Klarna, AWB and now Oatly, among others. He has already won awards in competitions such as Guldägger, ADC and DN's Reklamcupen.
"When it often feels like every project is being scrutinised through a magnifying glass, it's incredibly liberating to have someone who isn't hampered by either the client or the budget. Combining pop culture with a headstrong entrepreneurial spirit, it's hard to tell if what you're doing is art, design, advertising or something else entirely. But one thing's for sure: it moves. And the industry needs more people to adapt to, not the other way around. Congratulations to this year's Chicken Fellow Julius Tuvenvall."
