Graduate wins Sheffield Hallam trophy design competition

Have your say

An up-and-coming Sheffield designer has been commissioned to craft a winning trophy for Sheffield Hallam University’s annual business start-up challenge.

Industrial design graduate Christopher Barr has scooped the accolade after being announced as the winner of the Enterprise Challenge trophy design competition.

The competition was open exclusively to recent Sheffield Hallam graduates who are currently self-employed and based in the Sheffield region.

Christopher’s design was chosen as it celebrates Sheffield’s rich industrial heritage by incorporating stainless steel.

The design was also praised for his alternative approach to the theme of sustainability. The trophy will be presented in October.
