Eighteen-year-old Alexander Graham may have found his vocation in life now that his artwork has been chosen to front Croydon College's Christmas cards.

Alexander's winning design will be sent out in the next few weeks and is available as an e-card on the college website www.croydoncollege.com.

The BTEC graphic design student, whose design incorporates the college's yellow and blue colours, said: "I started with a similar design to other students but I decided to go for something more simple."

The teenager had not planned on becoming a card designer but added: "I enjoyed working on this brief as I like being imaginative, in fact I have designed over 50 tattoos for myself, friends and family."
