Commenting on the enthralling experience, Senior Packaging Designer Yman.S said : “Kingston and CSD have come-up with one of the best platforms for the artists to delve deeper into their memories and create something unique out of it. Through my artwork, I have paid homage to the people’s fighting spirit and hence have turned the scary monsters we all dread in our childhood memories, which now also represent the day-to-day hardships we face, into cute little monsters. I want to incite the spirit of positivity through my design.”
On the other hand, Lilo Jong who works as a multimedia designer expressed “I have always yearned to create an artwork which is intertwined to my precious memories. This opportunity enabled me to bring alive my deep-rooted emotions. My artwork depicted the inevitable feeling I have when missing my family, and I have used each storage device from different periods to represent my family members. I look forward to the support of the design aficionados of Malaysia and hope that I reunite with my family members, just like in my artwork in the near future.”
