A BARNSLEY lass has been headhunted at an exhibition showcasing 3,000 design graduates in London.

Sarah Gibson, of Darton, landed herself a great career opportunity within just half an hour of the exhibition opening.

Ensall & Hall, a design business who create contemporary prints for the fashion and interior industry, first spotted Sarah's designs when her Leeds College of Art degree tutor took them to Premiere Vision in Paris.

They were so impressed with her work that they hunted her down at New Designers 2015. Sarah caught their eye with her vibrant, abstract Yorkshire Moors designs.

Sarah said: "I couldn't believe it; the exhibition had only been open half an hour when Ensall & Hall found me with my work at the Leeds College of Art stand at New Designers.

"I’m currently working freelance for them and really happy about the opportunity.”
