CULTURAL SIGNIFIERS: Ghulam Rusli is in Development

source: Ghulam Rusli

Still a student of graphic communication after growing weary of computer coding, Ghulam decided to develop his preference for drawing with a proper education. As expected of artists still in growth, the guy still hasn’t found a particular style nor is he inspired by anything specific as he is still learning to polish his drawing skills. However, looking through his online portfolio, it’s clear he has an affinity for doodling – in fact, he finds that method to be boundless. Browsing through his graphic design work, they are quite quaint in their simplicity with a slight winking of humour such as the case with the anthropomorphised local dishes of Siri Roti and the zoomorphised letters of Udang Typography. The choice to use that particular crustacean for the latter—as he revealed—was because the prawn had a flexible body, which naturally made for the perfect tool to create a new typeface. At the moment, Ghulam is interning and hopes to pursue his latest interest—motion graphics.
