IN PLANE SIGHT
AS OUR MALAYSIAN ICON DESIGN CHALLENGE CAME TO A CONCLUSION, WE GAVE OUT PRIZES TO THE WINNERS AND FINALLY MET THE PEOPLE BEHIND OUR FAVOURITE DESIGNS.
The unique Malaysian culture is transposed onto paper in our Malaysian Icon design challenge, held in collaboration with Adonit, Faber-Castell, The Jekyll & Hyde Project and Taylor’s University. Using the paper aeroplane as a template, contestants realised their ideas of what Malaysia is. After sifting through an avalanche of entries, we narrowed down our 10 favourite designs. During the prize giving ceremony held at Taylor’s University, the finalists all received an Adonit tablet stylus, art supplies from Faber-Castell and goodies from The Jekyll & Hyde Project worth over RM200. The winner of this design challenge, Low Shiau Wei, walked away with a cash prize of RM3,000.
