KARACHI: Freelance designer Vakas Siddiqui’s work has laid to rest the myth that Pakistani students are limited to excellence in science and the humanities. Siddiqui’s design has been selected among the top 28 entries from the world on communication design. His work, and the other selections, will be displayed from October 21 to 30 at the National Taiwan University of Arts in Taipei.
Siddiqui’s artwork is a pair of footprints made up entirely of Urdu calligraphy – his mother tongue. The footsteps represent imprints left by his mother. “A mother is the only one people follow since childhood,” he told The Express Tribune. “Basically, we all follow footsteps.”
