A DESIGN student from Burton has secured an investment to launch her own studio.

Stephanie Bonner entered a Dragons' Den-style competition to bid for funding from venture capitalists from Trent & Dove Housing and the Business Enterprise Support Agency.

After impressing with her idea, the 21-year-old has walked away with £8,000 which will be used to turn her ideas into a fully operational company.

Stephanie says the money will be used to buy equipment to help her students gain valuable experience needed for a career in graphic design. She is also planning to rent an office in the town centre.

She said: "I am over the moon to have won the Building Futures competition as I have always wanted to set up my own graphics studio. This really is a dream come true for me."
