Vilcek Certificate

The Vilcek Prize for Excellence, introduced in 2019, is awarded to immigrants who have had a significant impact on both American society and world culture, or to individuals who are dedicated champions of immigrant causes. Past winners include artists, architects, academics, and scientists. The aim of the project is to create a certificate that references the traditional and elegant style of prize certificates but with a modern twist. In fact, all elements within the certificate are not abstract or traditional; instead, they consist of characters and objects from the contemporary world. I personally illustrated the entire certificate and worked on the colors and packaging design.
