SM Mall of Asia Premier Cinema
The finale event of the Manila Design Week 2009, and most probably the notable. What has become (in its 4th run now) the premier annual event in the Graphic Design world here in the Philippines – Graphika Manila.
This was my first attendance since the event’s inception in 2006, together with the Orange & Bronze Creative team.
What surprised me in the event itself is when I found out the fact that Aram Beheshti, all the while, is Graphika Manila’s foremost inventor and big boss, who’s actually a schoolmate of mine in Don Bosco during college. We soon hope Orange & Bronze Creative team would be a sponsor on next year’s event!
