SINGAPORE – In the recently held International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) Student Assessment Scheme 2017, our Raffles Graphic Designer Sonali SAMPAT’s submission received the prestigious Commendation Award, the highest award available! She also gained membership into ISTD.
Sonali’s project titled “Destructive by Nature”, is an editorial design project that explores the sometimes-difficult relationship between man and nature. The book is created in the style of a personal journal and outlines the many ways in which man’s actions have negatively impacted the natural environment.
Ms. Becky CHILCOTT, ISTD Deputy Chair/ Australasia Co-ordinator shared that Sonali’s entry was really lovely, with everyone commending her workbook and how refreshing it was to see something so tactile and uncurated and that she wanted to incorporate our Graphic Designer’s work into one of the organisation’s “How to Successfully combine type and illustration” video in the future. Sonali added that she was indeed thrilled to have attained the award and she enjoyed the experience of focusing her efforts on helping to build awareness on saving our environment.
Raffles Graphic Designers Monica HUTAMA and Deimante SIREIKAITE submissions received the prestigious Merit Award and also gained membership into ISTD.
Monica’s project titled “Type Evolution” is an editorial design project that looks into the progression of letters in the alphabet, throughout history, on how one leads to the other. The publication is designed to depict the movement of the letters and to also serve context on some of the most important typefaces that have ever been created.
Monica shared that she was honoured to have received the Merit Award and she enjoyed her time and efforts to come up with her creation.
Deimante’s project titled “Inferno” is an editorial design project that explores Italian poet Dante ALIGHIERI’s thoughts on the afterlife journey. The idea of the book is to follow Dante’s fascination towards numerology; thus the design consists of three-book collections, namely Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. Each book has nine sections and 66 spreads. The book is created in an elegant medieval style to keep it confined and structured.
