Shangning Wang, a Master of Visual Communication Design student in The Design School, has received multiple awards for his poster "Self-portrait." This work earned Wang the American Advertising Federation District 12 Student ADDY Gold Award, and he is a finalist for the National American Advertising Awards. This poster also earned Wang honorable mention for the eighth International Design Awards and the Student Silver Award in the Phoenix ADDY Awards. "Self-portrait" has been selected for the 2015 Asian Next Poster Experimental Design Invitation Exhibition.
"I sketched seven designers and one innovator whom I admire a lot then arranged them chronologically," Wang says of the work. "All these designers have inﬂuenced me a lot. The bigger one is my self-portrait, composed of my works and my face. This mind map shows the connections between my works and theirs."
