Shannon Teoh, alumnus of Visual Communications and Media Design was awarded the DesignSingapore Scholarship and will be studying at Tama Art University, his dream uni since 16 years old!
As a child, Shannon often pored over design books by Kenya Hara, a renowned Japanese designer. He did his research and found out that designers featured in the book graduated from Tama Art University and had his eyes set on the same university since. When the Chung Cheng High (Yishun) alumnus chanced upon design works by SP graduates, he was sold by its course curriculum and rigor.
With the help of his lecturers, he picked up Japanese in 3 years, embellished his portfolio, interned at design studios and eventually took the entrance exams for the university in Japan. His tenacity paid off and Shannon will be starting classes at Tama Art University after completing NS!
