Sa Milflores, May Isang Hostes (at iba pang kuwento)
by Rosario de Guzman-Lingat
In de Guzman-Lingat’s stories, the setting is just as important as the characters. I took the concept of rootedness to a specific time and place and applied to the titular street on the cover.
Unused cover study.
Playing with the imagery of the milflores flower, this study features a symbol from the title story.
Anvil Publishing, Inc.
by Lualhati Bautista
In this reissue of Lualhati Bautista’s classic, a footprint symbolizes impact, remembrance, existence, and loss.
The design communicates with young readers who may be unfamiliar with the story and its historical context. I decided to play it fresh, but subtle, without the usual torture motifs which can be visually uninviting and heavy-handed. Thus, a major decision was to color the print yellow instead of a conventional blood-red.
Meralco Industrial Engineering Services Corporation (MIESCOR)
MIESCOR Annual Report 2015
This cover, inspired by Futurism, celebrates technology, machinery, and power. The lines evoke movement and hint at the geometry of electrical towers and structures. The idea of “forging beyond” is given direction and force.
Unused cover study.
This study interprets “forging the future” as a human-centric task involving strength, hard work, and technical skill—in other words, manpower. It puts the MIESCOR worker front and center.
Bayan Academy Chairman’s Report
The logo radiates outward like a firework, visualizing Bayan Academy’s continued growth and success. Simultaneously, it connects to a pattern like a woven tapestry, reflecting Bayan Academy’s reach and influence.
The Politics of Clan Reunions
by Gaston P. Kibiten
A formal layout, functioning almost like a slideshow presentation, features snapshots by the author of a Kankanaey clan reunion.
Unused cover studies.
The initial cover concepts were marked by playfulness: a cartoon family, an invitation, a slab typeface. The last of these was reworked into the final output.
UP Institute for Maritime Affairs and Law of the Sea (UP IMLOS)
Treaty of Paris: Protocols and Papers
This book collects documents from the original 1898 agreement between Spain and the United States. The cover depicts the historic moment.
