    A professor and a student of Mapúa Institute of Technology’s Department of Multimedia Arts and Sciences (MAS) won major prizes at this year’s Philippine Graphic Design Awards (PGDA).

    Professor Meneer Marcelo’s illustrations of famous and controversial people in the country dominated the competition’s Typography, Illustration and Digital Artwork Professional category. His works earned him the Yellow and Red trophies.

    Yellow trophy is given to a professional finalist whose entry garners votes from at least 70 percent of the PGDA panel of judges during the second round of judging. The Red trophy, on the other hand, is a special award given by Adobo Magazine to the public’s favorite finalists.

    The same illustrations were used by Rogue Magazine in its July 2011 issue. The magazine commissioned Prof. Marcelo to do illustrations for its article, “Dangerous Minds.”

    Fourth year MAS student Janine Avenido also won a major award in the competition.

    Avenido clinched the PGDA White trophy for her entry “Satin Noose, Sunday Booze” under the Applied Graphics Student category. The White Trophy is a merit award given to finalists that earned more than 60 percent of the judges’ votes.

    The PGDA, which started in 2010, aims to recognize, celebrate and showcase the most creative and innovative works by Filipinos in the field of graphic design. This year’s awarding ceremony was held on November 5 at Decagon Silver City in Pasig.
