Aucklander Grace Kim has won one of Australia's top design competitions.
Kim, 23, was awarded the agIdeas NewStar prize (which is part of agIdeas International Design Week) with her experimental typographical work They Live in a Mirror. She beat 30 other emerging designers short-listed for the award and won a two-week scholarship to be mentored by a leading international design master at a studio of her choice. Her work has also been exhibited in Melbourne.
“I feel very fortunate and excited to be able to choose from an incredible list of design studios based all over the world,” says Kim. “And attending agIdeas International Design Week in Melbourne was a great source of inspiration and encouragement to continue to produce personal projects.”
