Story

Congrat­u­la­tions to Entro’s Monika Gilbert who received recog­ni­tion from Graphis Inc., Applied Arts Maga­zine, and the Adver­tis­ing & Design Club of Canada (ADCC) for her student work in the Graphic Design program at George Brown College!

Monika’s imag­ined design of the Tesla Motors Annual Report received a Graphis New Talent Award (2016) in the Annual Reports cate­gory, and an Applied Arts Award for Edito­r­ial Design (2015). The report itself focused on inno­va­tion, with the design promot­ing clean lines, mini­mal typog­ra­phy and diag­o­nal shapes that take cues from the Telsa brand and reflect the mission of the company.

Monika also received a Graphis New Talent Award (2016) for Pack­ag­ing Design. Apoteka + Kozmetika is a Euro­pean, high-end bath and body line for women. In her proposed design, Monika incor­po­rates vintage botan­i­cal illus­tra­tions, a fresh colour palette, and gold leaf edging to repre­sent luxury, youth and beauty, appeal­ing to these sensi­bil­i­ties.

In the Edito­r­ial & Book Design cate­gory, her work on ‘The Very Unscary Sea Monster’ was recog­nized by the ADCC. This children’s story book follows a young sea monster on his jour­ney to befriend a Viking ship. The illus­tra­tions are inspired by Danish art, using tradi­tional and digi­tal media, with lots of white space surround­ing them for a light and airy feel. The hand­writ­ten typog­ra­phy adds a touch of whimsy.
