100 Best Posters exhibition at the Sarawak Museum, April 2009

The “100 beste Plakate” (100 best posters) exhibition was held with financial backing of the Goethe Institute and the German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur and the Sarawak Museum. The exhibition was part of an ongoing series in which every year 100 best posters in German speaking countries are assessed from contributions of universities and private companies.

We decided to organise the exhibition to show our students at Swinburne in Kuching some different design and layout approaches. This was the first ever design exhibition in Kuching, and it was very successful. Part of its success was due to the fact that when we approached the Goethe Institute in Kuala Lumpur, they were so happy about the idea that the German Embassy decided to turn the event into something bigger and to organise a week of “German Days” with a visit from the embassador, economic talks, movie screenings and a grand opening of the exhibition by the Sarawak Chief Minister. Here is a press article from the Star newspaper about the day.

The students who were involved in building the exhibition enjoyed the experience, and everyone had a good time, regardless of the fact that it was also quite stressful and demanding.
