Sora won a design competition in the college. Jesse used her love of natural images to come up with an intertwining leaf design, while Harry was inspired by his bedroom wallpaper! Sora is Japanese for sky and suits the gradient colour and whole.

Why did you Exeter College to be a part of The Great Gorillas Project?
We were keen to be involved in such an exciting community project for Exeter that is also supporting important conservation work. It gave us the opportunity to showcase our excellent art and design students who designed and created Sora. We are delighted that Sora has pride of place on the Exeter Quay, very close to the brand new Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre that the College is now managing as part of a partnership with Devon County Council.
