Physically Distant - Socially Connected

This year’s theme of the WHY Graphic Design Festival in Florence was “physically distant, socially connected”. Out of over 250 international entries, 20 works were selected for the final round, including student Farah Awada’s work, developed during the Poster Design course.

“To stay away from each other is the hardest thing for human beings, as it goes against our nature, especially when it comes to difficult times. The natural survival instinct pushes us to stay together.”

This competition was an invitation to give tribute to the moments of connection and solidarity despite social distancing as beautifully expressed in Farah’s work.

Work by our graphic designers lands in Taiwan

Five of our graphic design students had their work shortlisted at the Taiwan International Student Design Competition (Visual Design Category). Out of over 20,000 entries from 860 schools and departments in 64 countries/regions, seven posters from LAU students were selected as finalists.
This is fantastic news for our students and our department - especially that some of the work was referred to the jury in Taiwan by the Ecuador Poster Biennial, where LAU was also shortlisted.
