  • Marjolaine’s inspired artwork!

    Tuesday 22 November 2011

    I’ve just published a news article about Marjolaine Perreten, a student from ERACOM (Ecole Romande d’Art et de Communication), who created the artwork prize for the recent European Athletics Women’s Leadership Awards.

    I remember that we met her and some other students two months ago and it was not easy to choose the best piece of artwork from the ones they had produced as everybody had done well. Finally, though, we plumped for Marjolaine’s design.
