AUK Graphic Design Student Among Winners of Typography Day 2017 Poster Competition

Senior Graphic Design student Maryam Abu Talaf was chosen as one of the winners of a typography competition hosted by the Department of Integrated Design at the University of Moratuwa in Sri Lanka.

The competition entitled, "Express Diversity in Typography" called for international students and professionals alike to design a poster using one letter, one word, many words, or even a paragraph composed of words.

Out of 600 entries, Maryam's poster was chosen by a blind jury, and is one of 36 winners that will be displayed in an exhibition during the Typography Workshop and Conference from 23-25 February, 2017 at the University of Moratuwa in Sri Lanka, in collaboration with IDC, IIT Bombay.

This marks the fourth year that students in the GDES 421 - Typography III class have participated in this poster competition and have made it onto the winners list. Maryam's work can be viewed here:

The Art and Graphic Design Department degree program offers a balance of theory and practice in the art and science of visual communication. The program cultivates cultural and aesthetic sensibilities while emphasizing critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving through the teaching of design history, methodology and technologies in order to produce designers capable of meaningful design in a diverse global community.
