AUK Art Student Qualifies for the 2017 Adobe Design Achievement Awards

Artwork created by a student from the American University of Kuwait (AUK) has qualified for the semifinals of the 2017 Adobe Design Achievement Awards. Shaikha Al-Ofan, a student in the Department of Art & Graphic Design at AUK, was selected as one of the 642 semifinalists, out of a total of 2444 entrants, who have had their artwork enter the semifinals.

Al-Ofan's submission to the competition featured a set of three posters, each representing her interpretations of imagery traditionally associated with the Gulf region, which she created in a Digital Imaging course offered by Professor Joo Won Lee, Assistant Professor of Art & Graphic Design. "I have always believed in the great artistic potential of our students. This achievement is a proof of my belief. I look forward to the continued maximization of the potentials for our students' further success," Lee expressed.

The Adobe Design Achievement Awards is considered to be one of the most leading digital design competitions, and it is organized by Adobe Systems Incorporated and sponsored by acclaimed global design institutions, such as the International Design Council.

Al-Ofan's collection of posters, which she collectively called Gulf Culture, has been selected and displayed at the 2017 AUK President’s Art Exhibition.
