Graduate's project highlighted at IDI Graduate Awards

Masa Yan graduated with a BA (Hons) in Design Communications in 2020 and was the winner in the IDI’s Graduate Awards in the Design Communications category.

Her winning project, titled "All Girls Equal," focused on the topic of female education. Her intention was to highlight the gender disparity in India’s education system and to encourage girls and women to pursue their dreams through higher education. Government and non-government legislation have gone some way to rectifying this but there is still a long way to go to achieve proper gender equality.

Asked what she's been up to since graduating, Masa said, "I've been working as a freelance illustrator since graduating and have worked on some really exciting projects. This includes poster design for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and for Children’s Books Ireland. I’ve also redesigned packaging and menus and created posters for the Dublin-based Pizza Mór restaurants. I’ve created illustrations for the South African stationery brand Colour Me Kids and most recently, I finished a design project for the upcoming Chinese Lunar New Year."

We're excited to see what she creates next!
