Singapore university votes on new ID design

Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University held a vote for its new card design competition with a winner chosen from some 500 submissions.

According to a Mothership report the judging panel was comprised of faculty, student and staff representatives, with the finalists presenting “distinctive interpretations” of NTU. The finalists included a freehand drawing of campus life, an appropriation of Piet Mondrian’s path breaking line compositions, and a conceptual representation of science meeting art as a nod to the university’s interdisciplinary exchange.

The new card will be rolled out for use by students, faculty and staff beginning early next year. The university is also moving to smart cards as part of the transition, incorporating additional features such as improved security and the convenience of smart card payment for retail and public transit.

The winning design has received over 1,100 positive reactions on Facebook since being released to the public. Despite the traction on social media, the wining design has not been unanimously supported and the university has decided to give students a second design option.

NTU students will be able to choose from two student card designs next year. The second design will be put forth by the NTU Students’ Union after reviewing the rest of the initial 500 design entries and shortlisting a further 50 designs.

The shortlisted design with the most votes will become the second design finalist. At the time of issuance, students can choose one of the two designs.
