CPUT Surface Design student wins prestigious competition


Jade Walters, a fourth year student in Surface Design, was judged overall winner in the most recent House and Leisure/Designers at Mr Price Home Competition. She topped students from around the country and her winning duvet design was featured in House and Leisure magazine.

Ms Walters chose to study Surface Design in 2005 as she was, and still is, passionate about the subject and feels it is an important aspect of everyday life. It concerns the clothes people cover themselves with and what people surround themselves with in their living spaces. Her aim is to create designs that are special, timeless, and ensure consumer satisfaction.

During her years of study, she has learnt a tremendous deal about design concepts, techniques and skills. Her work was exhibited at the Design Indaba in February with other ten delegates. Her lecturer, Elna Lubbe, introduced her to the competition.

As the winner, Ms Walters received high quality computer equipment worth R30 000.00.
