Typography by DDB Mudra 

In Typography, the brief titled ‘Its True. Typography can save lives too.‘ created by DDB Mudra, asked entrants to create a typographic solution that made “helmet wearing a cool act and remind people to do so, every time they ride a bike”, acknowledging the issue of road safety and deaths by bike accidents. Sumit Roy – the winner for the category – of Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara, created a motion typography which revealed “Helmets are Sexy”.

Paresh Raut (along with team members – Chirag Gander, Safinah Ali and Parimal Chahande) of Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai also won a Red Elephant in the same category for his swirly ambigram that read Helmet both front-up and upside down.

In the brief set by L&K Saatchi & Saatchi, named ‘Ugly to Beautiful‘, the students were asked to identify a part or an aspect of the city they lived in, which they found ugly and create a design solution using illustration to transform it into something beautiful.

Product Design by Creativeland Asia

‘Fearless’ – as the Product Design brief by Creativeland Asia was named – brought attention to ‘eradicating fear’, by means of designing compact, functional and beautiful medical kits for Fearless Healthcare, who are in the business of creating healthcare products that encourage people to live a life minus fear. The two Red Elephants for Product Design went to Abhinav Rao and Dharmagna Gopani(with team mate Mihir Joshi), all from Raffles Millennium International, Bangalore. The former’s entry looked like an all-encompassing briefcase and the latter’s resembled a box with compartments and slots for different medicines.

Packaging Design by Creativeland Asia

In packaging design as well, there were two Red Elephants – one each for Arun K. P. and Ismail C. P., both from College of Fine Arts, Thrisoor and Trivandum respectively. The brief – also by Creativeland Asia – set the task of ‘Rebranding Frooti’, a 30-year-old Mango drink and the first ever drink in India that was available in a tetrapack. The idea was to create packaging that could simply charm the consumer and a “a happy-sunshine-fun bottle label/pack design.”

Open Brief by Pidilite

And finally, the last Red Elephant of the night went to Rini Mitra of Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara, for the Open Brief ‘A New Fevicol MR’ set by Pidilite, which asked entrants to repackage the 100gms squeeze bottle for Fevicol MR and extend the packaging range to include Fevicol MR Craft Glue as well. The packaging design by Rini represented Fevicol, the brand which has been around for the past many decades, with generation of children growing up using their products, aptly.

The establishment of Kyoorius Student Award lends a voice to the student of India to showcase their talent and not just be listed as a winner in some catalog or be framed holding an award on a wall, but to go beyond that. It gives them the opportunity to work on briefs set by industry professionals and be appreciated and credited for this work. It also gives them a window into the professional work, which is quite different from the academic work – a reason why many fresh graduates feel disillusioned at first, upon graduation. It also presents the creative industry, a lens to focus on young talent, nurture it and keep themselves abreast with ideas and insights from the next generation of creatives.  With another edition of the Student Awards successfully concluded, we hope to see more talent in the years to come.
