STUDENTS have created wallpaper that is set to inspire Knutsford workers at one of the world’s leading banks.

Barclays set Art and Design students from Priestley College the brief of brightening up some of their workspaces at its global technology centre Radbroke Hall in Over Peover.

They then had to present their ideas to key members of the Barclays team during a Dragons’ Den style meeting.

“The students were encouraged to consider themes that reflected the culture of the site which included technology, transformation, Barclays Values and customer service,” said Peter Hartley, regional portfolio manager in global real estate and resilience.

“The quality of the work meant that it was difficult to select just one winner so three wallpaper designs will be commissioned to decorate walls at Radbroke and our new offices in Manchester.”

The winning design was by 18-year-old Zach Wrightson who is studying the Extended Diploma in Art & Design at Priestley College.
