Louai Alasfahani, Paragon Chief Creative Officer – Leading by example

I will be remembered for my love of the industry and its diminishing champions, for placing Kuwait on the world map of graphic design, for my SCR initiatives and my exhilarating experience of swimming against the current fearlessly fighting for the truth and rejecting the statuesque by documenting the factual standing of creativity in the Arab region on www.bloganubis.com by wiping the dirt off the mirror, industry practitioners could take a clearer look and see how it has aged disgracefully.

My legacy lives on through the veins of likeminded nomad warrior tribes of passionate professionals all over the world, whom commence positive change at every point of their journey guided by their moral compass and equipped with inherent valor, honor and the courage to lead. While most drink from wells they didn’t dig, we drink from our own wells dug through the dirt and rocks with bleeding nails mixed with our sweat. It is an honor to live by their side and together we leave this industry better than we first found it.

I left hope, a definition of purpose and a model to mimic. I left behind friendship. ”Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.” – Orison Swett Marden. ;)

THE CHALLENGE:

The topic for this year’s challenge is SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. In its simplest context, Sustainable Development is growth that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of new generations to meet the needs of the future.

It is commonly understood as a process of learning how to make decisions that consider the long-term future of the economy, ecology and equity of all communities.  As US President Dwight D. Eisenhower said in 1959, “The world must learn to work together-or finally it will not work at all”.

The student challenge is to creatively communicate how Sustainable Development enables nature, life support and communities to be sustained with the ongoing development of people, economy and society.

Application forms and submission procedures are available onwww.iaaglobal.org/Education.  Or click here to download the Case Brief.
