Hiiibrand International Logo Design Award aims to collect and reward excellent design works of logo and graduating designer from The One Academy William Sii Tong Ung seized top five as the only world winner from Malaysia to compete with participants from around the world with Bronze (student category) for his logo design and awarded feature in 28th edition New Graphic publication.
Beating some 1000 over works from 60 other countries such as the United States, China, Germany, Russia, and more, William said it felt great winning. "With this award, it pushes and encourages me to do better and gain the best achievements in the future," Hiiibrand Award saw participants from around the world compete with their logo designs and judged by international famous judges across the world such as the United States, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, namely famous brand design consultant Wally Olins.
According to William, he derived concept and inspiration for his work from the 'Applied Typo' assignment where from there, he came up with an idea called 'Personalise'. "Through experimenting, I finally have 'fingerprints' to represent the visual that will deliver the whole concept of 'Personalise' into a logo or brand design."
William thinks that if an idea is great and has potential, "We should go with it until we get it right and becomes something remarkable!" adding that studying at The One Academy is akin to working like a real designer. "The One Academy College is recognised for its nurturing potential and is a successful college based on communication design courses. We don't act like students here. We experienced deadline issues, rejection to our ideas and similar situations which we will soon face in the real world when we graduate so it is good to experience this now."
In advising other aspiring designers, William encouraged them to be daring and be creative with new solutions on designing. Once again, yet another designer triumphed and won recognition in the international arena through The One Academy's 'Masters Train Masters' teaching philosophy.
