"The ISTD is a professional body run by and for typographers, graphic designers, and educators.
The society has an international membership and its aims are to establish and maintain standards
of typography and to provide a forum for debate.

Xuan Phan who received a Merit award created a book The Art of Ink Painting which explored the spirit
of Calligraphy Art and its long history to readers, blending ancient and contemporary art style.

She said: “The publication process is one of the best experiences I have ever had, it taught me so many
lessons and was a great push for further development in the future. I was chuffed to bits to be awarded
the Merit Award and the golden ticket to becoming a member of ISTD. I could not have done this without
the support of my Westminster professors and peers.”
