Creative + Recycle = Winning for Charity
Updated 2010-08-13
It certainly feels good to bring back winnings seized by your creativity, as what the students experienced through participation in the recent C+C Creative + Charity event bazaar (17 & 18 July 2010) at Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur.

Scheduled for the event include dance performances, recycle & photography competitions and creative booths with arts & craft items up for sale. The objective is brought together with an aim to love humanity, creatures, nature and aspiration for the society to practice preserving the environment. The usage of creativity to promote its cause means creating creative household supplies or work of art & craft as a platform for creative liberation.

Final year Illustration student Valerie Yan took part in the booth event to sell her hand crafted clay art accessories. She strongly felt the academy has helped her in building her knowledge in colour combination & design and gleefully looks forward to participate in more similar events in the future.

Practicing the 'work smart' philosophy, the in-house Creative Department team also strived to create something that is creative and productive using their expertise in packaging, graphic design, copywriting and production to design and promote their hand-sewn hair accessories and keepsakes to sell at the Creative + Charity Bazaar.

In the Recycle Art competition & Innovation Design competition where the youths showed their innovative talent and seized the winner status, Lam Chee Long and Roxson Tan won the Grand Prize and Most Voted Prize in recycle art category for their intellectual entry of a tongue & grove concept created from magazine-paper, using rolling technique and glue to form its joints and edges. That makes two victories for creating brain-teasers and having fun constructing it too!

In the same category, the group who created a Recycle Chinese Chess game made & joined by plastic bottles won the Outstanding Prize for a logical game model which helped with logic thinking skill. The group consists of a brother-sister pair, William Sii & Anna Sii teamed up with Ho Keat Yie.

Another winning all-girl group of Multimedia Design students; Lim Peh Yee, Lee Jie Yee, Angela Lee Chai Foong and Er Sin Cher submitted a coffee table entitled 'Yuan Yuan', a functional furniture piece that is able to recycle can drinks with its table-stand; won the Outstanding Prize and Most Voted Prize of the category Innovation Design for their creative venture into an innovative interior design.

This competition brings higher aspirations in the creative field and inspiration to other budding designers. This shows that The One Academy students come in full package with skills at their fingertips when it comes to communication & design. Nevertheless, the academy keeps on going to nurture the students who proudly bring back recognitions that are beneficial for the aspirants themselves.
