After conducting my publication design course twice at RMIT Vietnam, I decided to initiate a publication on book design, more specifically, a presentation of students’ works from 2017 and 2018 to consolidate the idea of: “Print is not dead”. The book – supported by the School of Communication & Design and the Beanland Library, Saigon South Campus – has been published in March 2019.
“I used to leave books in my motorbike trunk. But now, since I partly understand how much love writers and designers put into, I hold, open and read them with all my respect. Gaining knowledge in a course is its obvious goal. But changing attitudes towards things around is definitely not something many courses can achieve.”
