AUC Graphic Design Graduate Selected as Finalist for Student Public Good Award 2020

Graduation project “Al Manseb, Educational Game.” by Aleyeldin Baracat.

The graphic design program is thrilled to announce the selection of our design graduate Aleyeldin Baracat as a finalist for the Student Public Good Award 2020 for his graduation project “Al Manseb, Educational Game.” This award is part of the Best Design Awards of The Designers Institute of New Zealand.

“Al Manseb” is an educational game that aims to enhance political awareness and youth engagement.

The game represents the country on a macro scale, reflecting how its economy works and highlighting the conflict between an individual’s self-interest and the population’s overall wellbeing. The project aims to introduce primary political, governance, and constitutional elements to young adults to make them more politically engaged. The game is built on top of the constitution, as it teaches players how constitutional articles directly relate to our day-to-day lives.

The project was supervised by Ghalia Elsrakbi, associate professor of practice of graphic design.
