On April 25, Natalie Ampil, a graduate of the Multimedia Arts program of MINT College, won bronze in the Open Category of the adobo Design Awards Asia 2018.

Ampil’s entry, Unhinged was her thesis during her senior year at MINT College. It was designed as a tool to help stimulate creative motivation for artists who are struggling with finding inspiration. Ampil’s Unhinged and Rico Ireneo’s Manila Electric Transport were among five finalists that also included two entries from DLS-College of St. Benilde, and one from DLSU-Dasmariñas.

Ampil’s win marks the second year that MINT College landed an award from the prestigious award-giving body in the field of design. This year’s Awards were judged by design and advertising executives from Thailand and Singapore, and key personalities from the Philippines.

Adobo Design Awards Asia 2018 was presented by adobo Magazine in partnership with D&AD, and was held at the BGC Arts Center
