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.
