Five design students will have their work displayed on London's new Elizabeth line trains

Design students in east London are behind a new advertising campaign for Transport for London’s new Elizabeth line.

Entries to create artwork showcasing the features of the new trains were submitted by Redbridge College and Barking & Dagenham College, which are both close to a stretch of the new route.

The five selected designs were made by students Hayden Shields, Egle Lenceviciute and Jesse Thraves from Redbridge College, and Jelizaveta Sergejeva and Inga Tenyte from Barking & Dagenham College, who study courses ranging from foundation photography to BTEC graphic design and illustration.

The posters will be displayed on the new trains, which will be 200 metres long and made up of nine carriages.

Miranda Leedham, TfL’s head of marketing operations, said: “We wanted to recognise a new generation of Londoners and the part they play in the city’s creative life.

“The young people who have created this artwork will be enjoying the benefits of the Elizabeth line for many years to come. They represent the city’s future, and I hope they enjoy seeing their artwork when out and about on the network.”

The Elizabeth line will run through central London and fully opens in December 2018.
