PIA BATEMAN IS OUR NEW FRONT COVER AND THE WINNER OF THE CASS PAD COMPETITION 2017
We offered one lucky winner the chance to be featured on the front cover of one of our award-winning pad range.
We had over 1,000 entries across a breadth of different media, and were blown away by the creative response. Shortlisted by award-winning designer Angus Hyland, Partner at International design agency Pentagram, we wanted to share with you are winning highlights of this year’s competition.
We are pleased to announce that Pia Bateman will be featured on the next front cover of our Cartridge Pad and has won £250 of Cass Art Vouchers.
“We loved the intricate, detailed nature of Pia’s piece and the fact that it was created exclusively with graphite pencils,” comments Mark Cass. “With over 1000 entries, her artwork was the stand out image for us and our lead Judge Angus Hyland said it was the one for him.”
