VN designer wins American awardWednesday, December 27,2017
AsemconnectVietnam - A series of four posters featuring characters from an ancient Tuong play (classical drama) by Vietnamese designer Dang Thi Bich Ngoc has been named a winner of the 2017 American Graphic Design Awards.
The 23-year-old designer from the Da Nang Architecture University made the posters on Truc Chi (bamboo pulp paper).
“Posters on the theme of theatre and cinema need special lighting effects. Truc Chi helps a painting look neo-classic, as the image on Truc Chi paper will appear when it is illuminated by LED lights. With her graphics, Ngoc has achieved success in America,” said painter Nguyen Tri Phuong Dong, who also won at the American Graphic Design Awards and advised Ngoc on her poster project.
The art of making Truc Chi was invented by painter Phan Hai Bang in 2011. Based on the traditional process of making the paper, Bang created a new type of art, Do hoa Truc Chi (trucchigraphy), in which artists create paintings on Truc Chi paper.
The paper has become a material for many other artistic and daily-use products, like lanterns, wallets, candle boxes, handbags, wall paintings and table calendars.
Graphic Design USA has been a business-to-business information source for graphic design professionals since 1963. The competition this year attracted nearly 10,000 entries.
Winning projects run the gamut from traditional print and packaging to non-traditional internet and interactive pieces, from dream assignments to conventional endeavors, from large creative departments to independent design studios and freelancers, from established stars to rising newcomers, according to the Graphic Design Awards.
