UNSW Industrial Design student wins 2014 AIP Scholarship
The winner of the 2014 Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) Scholarship has been announced. Anuj Dhawan, a third-year industrial design student at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) was announced as the winner of the scholarship, which is awarded to a finalist in the Cormack Innovation Awards.
“Anuj Dhawan was selected because he has a keenness to expand his education in the packaging realm,” said Ralph Moyle FAIP, national president of the AIP.
When he graduates from UNSW at the end of the year, Dhawan says he hopes to find a packaging role that will enable him to balance his interest in customer experience with that of successful functionality - creating a package that seduces customers while retaining its inherent protective qualities.
“Packaging is so ubiquitous within product design that I believe it is important for all designers to genuinely consider how it enhances or detracts from a product experience,” said Dhawan.
“Winning the AIP scholarship will allow me to expose myself to new technologies, methods and considerations within packaging.
“I want to absorb information. A designer’s education is never complete; the industry changes so rapidly and so often that setting your sights on one specific detail can result in you missing some incredible opportunities for growth.”
