Academic Regalia in a Multicultural Environment


So as not to point out just things from long ago, here is a case study from about four years ago.
The Macau Inter-University Institute's rector has invited us for a challenging task. Although he is a PhD from an American University, the rector wanted that the Academic Regalia could be created based on the Sino-Portuguese Memories of Macau.
We therefore elaborated on an ideological-historical approach on the colors and values. We planned every detail and even created a necklace for the Rector based on the traditional jewells of China.
An entire website was built and can be viewed here with full explanations.
Never did our client questioned the design. He agreed with everything and we are proud to have developed a new Academic Regalia based on the request for History and the combination of East and West.
We still cater for the making of the regalia for new Bachelors, Masters and PhD's.

Hope you all enjoy.
