Mockups Design

Kespa Katsuk, currently in the final year of the Bachelor of Design (Communication Design), is the winner of the Best Designed Student Series category in the 69th Australian Book Design Association's (ABDA) design awards.

Kespa's winning works respond to a collection of writings by Anni Albers and were produced as a part of the Book Cover Design studio in 2020.

Felix Oppen from Tiliqua Press said, "The future of publishing and design in general depends on new, well trained designers entering the industry."

Oppen also said, "RMIT University must be doing something right because all our shortlisted entrants are from RMIT."
