We are individuals who came together in the year 2011 on the month of August (8) and were coded as the 118 intake of Equator Academy of Art. The code concept for our graduation theme is inspired by how they are encoded as a team.
Therefore, we name our Graduation Showcase “eleven eight”
We believe that all things are encoded for a purpose and our purpose here in Equator; is to obtain valuable knowledge, skills, and qualification in art and design. Our role as a designer is like an encoder, transforming into interesting and effective visuals.
In the past three years’ journey, we learned as a team and also specialize as a creative individual. The five colors code on our graduation showcase logo represents the 5 programs which are; Graphic and Multimedia Design, Fashion Design Technology, Digital 3D Animation, Interior Design, and Fine Art. The color tints characterize the variety and flexibility of the respective fields of studies in the area of skills as well as design applications.
We decode “eleven eight” as the essence of 118 which will always live on to bring creative possibilities to people. Now, it’s the time for us to reveal our vibrant talent and specialty to the world of Art and Design and for you to decode “eleven eight”.
Message from the President of 118
First of all, congratulations to all of us from batch 118 for completing our diploma courses!
“Eleven Eight” represent the number sequence give to our batch when we stepped in together in August 2011. Looking back, we were a bunch of youngsters who could not even draw a circle or hold a pencil properly! After three years of dedication and hard work, under the best guidance of all the professional lecturers and staff, we are now equipped full with art and design knowledge, ready to step into the design industry.
I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Equator College, for where we grow, not only in terms of technical skills but also where we become matured, throughout the whole process of being here. We are always given the freedom and opportunity to explore with our own imagination and creativity, which able us to be as flexible and as original in the respective field of studies. As the code is our concept for this graduation exhibition, each of us has our own unique style and way of working in producing designs.
After graduation, we are going to leave the academy and pursue our journey in different fields. No matter where we go after this, do remember to always make full use of what we have learned in a good ways so that people decode “Eleven Eight’ as a team that can bring a positive impact to the art and design world. Keep this positivity burning and push yourself further. Let’s take this quote from Oprah,
” There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”
Best of luck to everyone; wish you guys have a bright future in the design industry and never be afraid of how far your passion can bring you. Keep in touch!
We are Eleven Eight!
