1. What part of this project are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my ability to step out of my comfort zone and do something that I’ve never done before. As I have never personally designed a magazine before, it was really hard for me to draft out how the template on each page compliment each other in terms of its colour palette and negative and positive spaces. This was hard as I do not have any previous experience in graphic design. Also, as I was researching the history of Malaysia’s evolution in environmental sustainability, I find it so hard to combine all of the research into one without having to miss any crucial information out. Thus, the successful formulation of complete sustainability progress and a magazine felt really rewarding to me.
2. [Fantasy] If you had all of the time and all of the money, what would you do differently? (About Bridge 4)
I would hire a team and perform a hands-on investigation on how we could improve this particular building to being more sustainable. Also, I would hire someone skilled in the technological background aspect of different green sustainability features and educate the workers in Malaysia, as through my research I find that one of the major issues with green buildings in Malaysia is the lack of knowledge and expertise.
3. [Reality] If you could rewind time for one month, what would you have done differently between Spring Break and now? (About Bridge 4)
As this is a piece that is completely out of my comfort zone, I think I have done a decent job at it. However, I would probably include more cultural and economic aspects of Malaysia so that the audience would understand the country’s background more before trying to understand the buildings. Also, if it is possible, I would love to interview the owner of KLCC Property Holdings, the real-estate firm that owns Petronas Twin Towers on what their future green initiatives is for this building as limited information is available online.
